Cosigned by a lot of people

Current Rule:
As stated above, a country’s funds are known as its ‘Coffers.’ In general, hexes of land and mines produce income on a seasonal basis; acquiring land, construction of assets, and upkeep of assets expend income. It is the duty of the Land Marshal to record and maintain the balance sheets of each country; upon request, a country Liaison may receive a current copy of his country’s balance sheet at any time from the Land Marshal.

New Rule:
As stated above, a country’s funds are known as its ‘Coffers.’ In general, hexes of land and mines produce income on a seasonal basis; acquiring land, construction of assets, and upkeep of assets expend income. It is the duty of the Land Marshal to record and maintain the balance sheets of each country; upon request, a country Liaison may receive a current copy of his country’s balance sheet at any time from the Land Marshal. Revenue is generated twice a year, it is credited or debited from the country coffers on the Vernal (March 21) and Autumnal (September 21) seasonal equinoxes.

Rationale:
The way this is worded – the seasonal money should be occurring 4x a year (each season). This is not the way the coffers have been calculated. Instead it’s been done on the vernal/autumnal equinoxes. The original rule with the equinox language is in the 1994 rule book on page 19. This will just make it clearer in the future about when this will happen.
