    The words ``The board shall determine on an equitable basis the 
number of votes'' are substituted for ``shall be determined according to 
allocation by the Board of Governors, which shall be established on an 
equitable basis'' for clarity and to eliminate unnecessary words. The 
words ``the populations served'' are substituted for ``the populations 
in the territories served'' for clarity and to eliminate unnecessary 
words.
