I want to say that your performance was absolutely exemplary. Everyone who has discussed the product with us has been amazed at the scope, the detail and the overall grasp of the situation that the report displayed, especially given the deadline we imposed on you. I only hope we can maximize its effect as we organize statewide support for the key findings and recommendations.
