10:46 AM -- Discussion of Capitol Building Security Costs
Representative Weissmann raised the issue of Capitol building security costs, specifically eliminating having two public, secured entrances. President Shaffer noted that this is one of the places where there is enough money to create savings. Representative May said that currently security funding is not being spent wisely because the funding is insufficient. Committee members agreed that discussing security costs would be an important conversation to have. President Shaffer noted that the issue should be raised at the next meeting so that the necessary people need to be involved can provide more information to the committee. Senator Penry suggested having staff begin researching the security options available. The President directed LCS to prepare a briefing on security, threat assessment, and budgeting.
The committee adjourned.
