Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) today announced that it is planning to submit to a vote of shareholders at its 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders amendments to its Restated Articles of Incorporation to provide shareholders with the ability to unilaterally amend Cummins’ By-laws.

If approved by the shareholders, the amendments to the Restated Articles of Incorporation will become effective promptly after the 2018 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, along with a conforming By-law amendment.
