22:49 ~ 1/21/2011 1:28:22 PM ~ Nicholas I'll make a motion that we break it in half

25:54 ~ 1/21/2011 1:31:27 PM ~ Nicholas Take a look at page 16 We have been putting a lot into this agency year after year. They can squeeze out $600,000 from thier budget. Clarifying all the changes
27:45 ~ 1/21/2011 1:33:19 PM ~ Berger Illiminage $125,000 for foreign funding
28:19 ~ 1/21/2011 1:33:52 PM ~ Harshman The redesign of the website This is to redo their website

32:42 ~ 1/21/2011 1:38:15 PM ~ Nicholas The gov. requests that we pull this out. In some sense we could do that. I would like for us to discuss this
33:59 ~ 1/21/2011 1:39:32 PM ~ Mai There issue is that all state agencies are treated the same as others. If its available use that first. UW's position is that everything is a block grant.
35:28 ~ 1/21/2011 1:41:01 PM ~ Nicholas It would be unit 1601
35:45 ~ 1/21/2011 1:41:18 PM ~ Cox The budget dividsion is comfortable with that proposal.
36:11 ~ 1/21/2011 1:41:45 PM ~ Nicholas YOu would have to transfer it....6707 would require

38:42 ~ 1/21/2011 1:44:16 PM ~ Mai I think you can take care of this by footnoting it at the bottom of the bill.
39:40 ~ 1/21/2011 1:45:13 PM ~ Nicholas We do work within
40:05 ~ 1/21/2011 1:45:38 PM ~ Mai Your are exacitly right WE just put an line item for that cost

46:53 ~ 1/21/2011 1:52:26 PM ~ Nicholas What is the baseline?
47:36 ~ 1/21/2011 1:53:09 PM ~ Cox Gov.
48:10 ~ 1/21/2011 1:53:43 PM ~ Nicholas Right now is It is in the health insurance
49:08 ~ 1/21/2011 1:54:41 PM ~ Berger We will take an example.
51:17 ~ 1/21/2011 1:56:51 PM ~ Mai The very simple solution is to put a footnote on it. That is something the budget people do. We could put in a Section 300 for all angences
52:40 ~ 1/21/2011 1:58:13 PM ~ Nicholas The state of Wyoming pays for retirees unused vacation and sick leave If you have a 35 year employee, the way the The substantial amount to that fund is We will do baby steps here. How does that sound?
56:02 ~ 1/21/2011 2:01:36 PM ~ Mai Put a footnote that you can pay 100 series, can't use it for non-100 serces .
57:33 ~ 1/21/2011 2:03:06 PM ~ Wallis I'm worried about that unfunded liablity
58:12 ~ 1/21/2011 2:03:45 PM ~ Nicholas Its a benefit that exists. When you tell an employee tat he has $40,000 he feels that he will be paying taxes. Small agencies cannot afford to live with that. There is no benefit of being healthy. If you change it, it has consequences.
1:02:25 ~ 1/21/2011 2:07:58 PM ~ Pedersen One of the things fro new employees would still honoring that contract.
1:03:46 ~ 1/21/2011 2:09:19 PM ~ Nicholas I think in the end is when you never look at it
