  • A motion to amend the Restatement by adding a new § 2 on interpretation and construction, and then renumbering subsequent Sections passed.
  • A motion to amend § 2 Adoption of Standard Contract Terms failed.
  • A motion to amend § 3 Modification of Standard Contract Terms failed.
  • A motion to remove entirely § 6 Deception failed.
  • A motion to amend § 9(a) was withdrawn following the suggested revisions discussed during the project session by the membership.
  • A motion to amend § 9(b) was withdrawn, after the Reporters agreed to address the concerns raised by the motion in § 9 Comments.
  • A motion to remove any new language added to § 1 on reasonableness, § 1(c), and current § 2, from inclusion in the Boskey Motion did not pass.

The membership voted to approve Tentative Draft No. 2, subject to the approved motion to add a new § 2. This vote marks the completion of this project.

After a spirited discussion at the 2019 Annual Meeting, the membership voted to approve § 1 of Tentative Draft No. 1, subject to the discussion at the Meeting and usual editorial prerogative.
