A community IRP requires an action of the empowered community to bring the challenge to the Board's action before the IRP. 

The current compromise text would, I think, prevent the GAC from participating in a decision to bring that challenge in the case where the action challenged is the Board's implementation of what the GAC has asked for. 

What you are proposing would allow the GAC to participate in that decision, which is an essential step in the process from which you appear to accept the GAC ought to be excluded. This does not seem consistent.
