Good afternoon, colleagues. I call this meeting to order.
We're welcoming some new members today. On the Conservative side we have Mr. Kurek. Mr. Dreeshen is here in replacement, and then he's going to work on the natural resources committee. We have Mr. McLean with us, who has been here before, and Mr. Deltell, who is a member of the committee. He hasn't arrived yet, but he'll be with us as a permanent member of the committee.
Before we start with the witnesses today I would like to ask for unanimous consent to adopt the subcommittee report, which you've seen and which came out of the last meeting of the steering committee.
