Its in the latest Quest (I just got it a week or two ago). Read it
*carefully* (especially if you are part of a Lodge with significant assets).
The bylaw would require you to *insert* language into your own bylaws.
National has always had the power to form or dissolve Lodges, but this will
give them unquestioned control of assets (assets that in most cases *they*
didn't raise). (I am aware that you have looked deeply into the legalities
surrounding Lodge property & ownership ... I suspect we may well agree about
the potential ramifications of the proposed bylaws (-:). -JRC
