Resolved clause
The Educational Foundation of America has filed the following resolution. This will be updated in the lead filer field as soon as possible.

Shareholders request that Lowe’s issue a public report prior to December 31, 2022, omitting confidential and privileged information and at a reasonable expense, detailing any known and any potential risks and costs to the Company caused by enacted or proposed state policies severely restricting reproductive health care, and detailing any strategies beyond litigation and legal compliance that the Company may deploy to minimize or mitigate these risks.
Supporting statement
Shareholders recommend that the report evaluate any risks and costs to the company associated with new laws and legislation severely restricting reproductive rights, such as SB8 in Texas, and similar restrictive laws proposed or enacted in other states. In its discretion, the board’s analysis may include any effects on employee hiring, retention, and productivity, and decisions regarding closure or expansion of operations in states proposing or enacting restrictive laws and strategies such as any public policy advocacy by the company, related political contributions policies, and human resources or educational strategies.
