Impact of the Increase in the Passing Score on the New York Bar Exam

In 2005, the New York Board of Law Examiners increased the NY Bar's passing score from 660 to 665. The National Conference of Bar Examiners prepared a report on the impact of the 2005 NY Bar Exam's passing score increase. A press release on the report (2007) can be found here, and the full report (2006), which includes data on foreign-educated candidates, can be found here.

The NY BOLE intended to increase the passing score from 660 to 675 over three years; however, it seems the second and third increases were put on hold, pending the 2006 report. Does anyone know if there remains any plan to implement these increases?
