Senator MURPHY (3:19 PM) —by leave—On two occasions now Senator Ferguson has made a statement to the effect that I have not read the report. In fact, I have. I would like to put on the record that I did read the report, I supported it and I signed off on it. There were two aspects of the report with respect to SIEVX matters that I wanted to take some additional time to consider, and I did so. I support the report. At the time I wrote to the chair of the committee—a letter which I hope Senator Ferguson might have read—stating my position. Whether Senator Ferguson took the time to read the letter I sent to the committee is another matter. I certainly did read the report and I did sign off on it.

Question agreed to.
