    (What is a Work Item?)

    Rationale

    It was brought to the attention during the committee meetings in New Orleans that there is an industry issue that needs to be solved in this standard. This standard has a NOTE listed under section 8.1 that directs the dimensions used on Hardwood / Softwood stakes and those dimensions which are not common within the industry are being changed in this ballot item. The standard itself is not being balloted in full at this time, which is allowed by provisions of ASTM. Since the subcommittee meeting in San Diego the negative votes were discussed and the resolution on this matter is addressing the issues presented.
