(B) The directors may adopt amended articles to consolidate the original articles and all previously adopted amendments to the articles that are in force at the time, or the shareholders at a meeting held for such purpose may adopt such amended articles by the affirmative vote of the holders of shares entitling them to exercise a majority of the voting power of the corporation on such proposal.
