I support Ron's suggestion too, in part because there are so many outstanding 
issues. If the Board realistically cannot respond to all of these substantive 
issues at this point in the process, then a general remedy to address the 
concerns is to limit the initial round and allow a fact-based review of that 
round to inform the process.  And I think that is in the interest of the 
business community too as a way to provide a path forward, recognizing that all 
of our concerns have not been addressed. 

Jon, you raise good points about the practical concerns, but can't the starting 
point be a numerical limit based on the timing of when applications make it 
through the process. I would think that would reward applicants that are ready 
to move quickly and do not trigger the objection or conflict process.
