NPC Figure Rules

I tried to search BB for confirmation of this, but as I understand it, under the NPC, they dropped figure judging down to 1 round, so you only need 1 2-piece suit. With the cost of posing suits, I hope this is true, since it cuts contest expenses by a lot!!! Anyone else hear this?
