WHEREAS, The provisions of §5548(c)(3) provide that if an election is made to be governed by that subsection, the term “income,” for the purposes of the endowment funds, shall mean a percentage of the value of endowment fund assets as the Board shall select annually, after determining that the percentage selected is consistent with the long-term preservation of the real value of the assets; provided, however, that the percentage selected shall in no event be less than 2% or more than 7% per year; now therefore be it
