After ignoring my action items for about a year, others have done most
of the hard work and so I can report the following;

5 Framemaker licenses that can be shared among editors, assigned for
periods of time and then switcthed to new editors as necessary, will
cost just under $2500/year ($400+ dollars per yearly license).

The motion passed last July said:
Move that the LMSC authorize the purchase of Framemaker subscription
licenses with a cost not to exceed $1000 for a time period not to extend
past December 2020 as a test. Technical Editors who want access to these
licenses will contract the LMSC First Vice Chair, who will determine the
distribution of the licenses.

So, I would need a new motion to authorize $2500 for a time period not
to extend past December 2021.

Or we could go for fewer license to try it out.

Please respond with one of:
1) I think we should go for $2500
2) Keep it to $1000 with fewer licenses
3) Drop the idea.

This is sort of a straw poll, so anyone can respond.  But note that
actually spending the money will require a majority of the voting
members of the EC at a meeting.
