The rules governing the fairness or conduct of the competition at PRCA rodeos, the safety of contestants and livestock and the definition of rodeo events shall be referred to as the “Official Rodeo Rules,” which shall be published separately from these Bylaws but which shall have the weight and legal effect of Bylaws of the PRCA, provided, however, that in the event of a conflict between a Bylaw and a Rule, the Bylaw shall prevail. B11.1 Amendment of Rules. The Official Rodeo Rules may be amended or modified in accordance with the procedures set forth herein. Proposed changes are to be put on the table for one full year of consideration before finalized. B11.1.1 Proposals. B11.1.1.1 Submission and Publication of Proposal. Any

Member, Director to the Board of Directors, Event Representative, PRCA staff or the CEO may submit a rule change proposal requesting an addition to, a deletion from or a modification of the Official Rodeo Rules. Such rule change proposal shall be made in writing, shall state the reasons therefore and must be received by the CEO by the Submission Deadline (5:00 p.m. Colorado time on the second Friday in March). The CEO shall forward such proposals to the Competition Committee or, if a Ground Rule change is proposed, to the Contestant Executive Council. Any such proposal shall be published in the PRCA Business Section no less than once per month for one full year, and shall not be acted upon by the Competition Committee until the legislative meetings of the Competition Committee in the calendar year following the year in which the proposal is first published. A proposal which is received after the Submission Deadline shall be considered with the proposals which are received prior to the corresponding Submission Deadline in the following year. The person submitting a proposal may withdraw the proposal by written notification to the CEO at any time prior to the proposal’s adoption or rejection by the Competition Committee or the Contestant Executive Council, as the case may be.
