The GPUS Fiscal Policy, Article X Loans, 10-1 Reasons for Loans, states that
GPUS may take out loans to cover seed funds for special projects. The funds sought in this
loan proposal are seed funds for investing in merchandise inventory before the Annual
Meeting in July, 2013.

The GPUS Fiscal Policy, Article X Loans, 10-2 Approval, states that loans in
excess of a cumulative 1% of the Annual Budget ($2,867 for 2013) must be approved by a
vote of the National Committee. There are loans are outstanding in the amount of $5,875
at this time.

The National Committee has previously approved six proposals for
interest-free loans from Greens:

Proposal 262, March 2007, for $9,900; repaid within four months.

Proposal 334, January 2008, for $9,600; repaid within two months.

Proposal 353, June 2008, for $15,000; repaid within six months
except in eighteen months by permission of the last two loaners.

Proposal 398, June 2009, for $25,000; repaid within six months.

Proposal 431, December 2009, for $30,000; repaid within thirteen months.

Proposal 672, June 2012, for $9,000 partially repaid at this time, $5875
still outstanding.

The Steering Committee requests approval for interest-free loans from Green
Party members totaling no more than $2,000, to be used for purchasing
merchandise inventory only.


1. The National Committee agrees to accept interest-free loans from Green
Party members not to exceed $2,000. These loan funds will be used only for
purchasing merchandise inventory.

2. Loan repayment will be made from proceeds of merchandise sales.
Merchandise sales revenue that exceeds loan amounts will be earmarked for
additional merchandise inventory investment.

3. It is our expectation that loans can be repaid over the course of the
next three or four months, or as quickly as merchandise sales permit, whichever is sooner.
