Thank you so much, everybody. That concludes the part of business related to Bill S-222.
We have two other items to deal with briefly before we conclude today.
The first is that we need approval of the travel budget related to the Inflation Reduction Act. That was distributed yesterday. Does anybody have any questions on it?
We included travel for seven members, plus a support team. The three locations that were costed out, as discussed on Tuesday, with field trips to be taken, are Houston, Denver and Sacramento.
Did anybody have any questions, or are we ready to vote on a proposal that we can then send off to the Liaison Committee?
Seeing no questions, shall we adopted the budget as presented?
(Motion agreed to)
The very last item I have is to welcome back to the table our analyst. One of our analysts is still back there. We've kept our legislative clerk.
Ross has been with the committee since before I started. He wanted a moment to address the committee.
With that, Ross, it's over to you.
