## [Executive Vote] Raise the Base Rate
The Maker Foundation Interim Governance Facilitator has placed an Executive Vote into the voting system, which will enable the community to approve the following alterations to the protocol:
- [Raise the Base Rate from 0% to 1%](https://vote.makerdao.com/polling-proposal/qmyyuvc3fphgt9bqotkedijxt5mpnjfktz3je9c2cspfae)
This adjustment will set the following Stability Fees:
- ETH-A: **1%**
- BAT-A: **1%**
- USDC-A: **1.75%**
- USDC-B: **51%**
- WBTC-A: **2%**
- TUSD-A: **1%**
The DSR will also be set to **1%**
The Executive Vote ([FAQ](https://community-development.makerdao.com/makerdao-mcd-faqs/faqs#governance)) will continue until the number of votes surpass the total in favor of the previous Executive Vote. This is a [continuous approval](https://community-development.makerdao.com/makerdao-mcd-faqs/faqs/governance#what-is-continuous-approval-voting) vote.
These changes were discussed in the Governance call on Thursday, June 11. Please review the [Video](https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLLzkWCj8ywWNq5-90-Id6VPSsrk4OWVan), [Audio](https://soundcloud.com/makerdao/sets/governance-calls), and the online [discussion](https://forum.makerdao.com/c/governance) to inform your position before voting.
The MakerDAO community is moving forward with an Executive Vote to determine whether it will enact the changes established by the previous [Governance Polls](https://vote.makerdao.com/polling).
**Voting for this proposal will place your MKR in support of implementing the changes outlined above.**
