This seems to be a recipe for a self-perpetuating all-powerful bureaucracy.
Why should the burden of proof be reversed and limit the right of the
membership to vote for anything that the majority would deem appropriate?
Should those who commit to expenses be allowed to freeze levels of
expenditure without the members having the right to achieve reductions
simply by reducing the funding?
I think this article should be deleted.
