Bylaws Proposal - Provide alternate pathways to appealing to the Judicial Committee

Again by our faithful Committee Secretary Dan Karlan:

The requirement that 5% of the membership must agree to bring a matter before the Judicial Committee has all but guaranteed that the Judicial Committee has never been called into action. In recognition of that apparent irrelevance, we first considered a proposal to eliminate the Judicial Committee. That proposal simply didn’t fly, but the notion of making it easier to bring a matter before the Judicial Committee had clear, immediate, and substantial support. We are considering providing three alternate routes to bringing a matter before the Judicial Committee:

1. 5% of the delegates to the most recent Convention.
2. 10% of the State Chairs
3. 20% of the current LNC
