Based on conversations with our friends in Washington, D.C., it appears that we should be scheduling our visit there in early 2024, probably in February or March.  The Sacramento trip will follow shortly after the D.C. trip.  The D.C. congressional calendar is generally available in November, so we will be awaiting its availability.

Committees broke out into their respective groups to work on legislative items.

Meeting adjourned 7:40 a.m.
