ator Leahy’s standpoint, the beginning and not the end. We con- sciously chose in our discussions about what to file in terms of early legislation things that we thought would not be particularly controversial, things that were common sense and would assist agency representatives both through education and training and other things to do the job that the law already requires them to do.
I not only want to thank you for your testimony, your oral and written testimony today, but also thank you for your willingness to work with us on this important issue and trust that we can con- tinue to call on you from time to time to help us as we move for- ward, because as I said, this is just the beginning and not the end.
So, on behalf of Chairman Specter and certainly Senator Kyl and Senator Feinstein, as I said, Senator Leahy, they allowed us to hi- jack their Subcommittee for purposes of this hearing, I want to ex- press my appreciation to them, but also finally again to Senator Leahy and his staff for their great work.
We will leave the record open until 5:00 p.m. next Tuesday, March 22. There will be, no doubt, written questions that others would like to submit to you which we would like to get your an- swers for the record and would ask you to respond to those as soon as you can.
With that, the hearing is adjourned. [Whereupon, at 11:48 a.m., the Subcommittee was adjourned.] [Questions and answers and submissions for the record follow.] [Additional material is being retained in the Committee files.]
