- Added two paragraphs on p. 22: "If an appointed elected official ceases to hold elected office for reasons of term limits or for other reasons, then his or her seat on the transit agency shall be considered to be vacant. The appointing bodies shall meet to appoint an official to serve out the remainder of the term approximately 40 days after the general election, or else within 15 days of when the vacancy occurs," and "Appointments by the City Selection Committee should be affirmed by the majority of cities represented , i.e. with 8 votes. If none of the candidates receive the required number of votes, then the City Selection Committee shall reconvene within 30 days to vote again on the appointments."
- Added the following text to the Construction Agency section on p. 22, "The construction agency shall be in charge of overseeing the construction of very large (multi-million dollar) transit and road capital projects. The agency will work with the CMA and the Transit Agency to determine the criteria by which projects will be assigned to Construction Agency vs. being controlled in-house by the transit agency or coordinated by the CMA with other agencies. These criteria will include but not be limited to consideration of: 1) the number of agencies that need to be involved in the construction, 2) whether the project is to construct a major new facility, or is primarily concerned with maintenance or repair, 3) whether or not the project requires extensive disruption of existing services that require close coordination with the operator of the services."
- On p. 23, added to Fiscal Oversight bullet point "and Transit Agency"
- Corrected a few minor typographical errors that do not reflect on the content.
