I picked up my copy of the new "Scoutmaster Handbook" today and all you
have to do is read Chapter 3. The explanation of the patrol leaders' council
on page 14 says, "The ...(PLC) plans and runs the troop's ptogram...," but
there's a caveat at the bottom of the page: "The Scoutmaster and troop
committee retain veto power over decisions of the patrol leaders' council, but
should need to exercise it only on rare occasions when the plans of the patrol
leaders' council would violate BSA policy or could lead to a situation the
might jeopardize the safety and well-being of troop members."
That's the "short" of it; get the new "handbook" for the "long."
