of the board and their duties.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair  Stedman   asked  about  the   recommendation.  Ms.

Senator Olson  asked if the administrative  shortcomings and                                                                    
the  other   errors  found  in  the   federal  investigation
