Retirement of Bishops (81433-SU-¶409.1a-$)

Amend ¶409.1.a) as follows:
  
1. Mandatory Retirement—a) A bishop shall be retired on August 31 next following the regular session of the jurisdictional conference if the bishop's sixty-eighth sixty-sixth birthday has been reached on or before July 1 of the year in which the jurisdictional conference is held.

Rationale

In keeping with rising full Social Security retirement standards in the U.S., the retirement age should be raised. As people live longer and are productive longer, it is time for this change.
