|USAP Board Voting Status||Failed|
|USAP Rules Committee Voting Status||Failed. Technically this is grammatically correct, but there is no desire to attempt to change it.|
|Existing Rule #||3.A.15|
|Proposed Rule Change|
3.A.15 Hindrance – Any transient element or occurrence…
|Original Rule Text|
3.A.15 Hinder – Any transient element or occurrence...
|Reasoning Behind Suggested Change|
The word “hinder” is a verb, not a noun. Therefore it can’t be defined as any transient element or occurrence…, both of which are nouns. There is no such thing as a hinder.
The word “hindrance” is the noun, is not a verb and is the correct word.
