ST. LOUIS (Feb. 25) — The Legislative Committee approved the Traditional Plan by a 461 to 359 vote, which moves it to tomorrow’s plenary session. Now other plans are being considered — right now the “disaffiliation” plans. Tomorrow is when the General Conference will debate and have the final vote.
