In short, it says “The exemption... is hereby cancelled”. Say what!??? See...

I welcome your thoughts.


The Exemption document actually does make sense in that THE CURRENT VERSION was issued in 2009. The current version also contains a cancellation notice for the version issued in 2006. Without the cancellation, there would be two versions in force concurrently.
