Default July Regionals for this summer were already cut to 32.

The July Regional draws will be reduced to 32. Intersectional will include 14s. L5 will be gone Opportunities for national events WILL be cut, may be less than the current proposal.
This already passed. July regionals for this summer, 2013, were already cut to 32. It is the one change that went through already, and the rest of the package was up for discussion.
