I have still been participating on the committee via conference calls. There has not been a lot of new information for me to share. The new OAIRS is moving forward at a slow pace. The legislature put a hold on funding for the new program temporarily and members of the OSFM office attended a hearing to get the funds approved. The funding has now been approved and they are in the process of going out to bid. They should go out to bid soon and hope to have a contract signed by January or February 2008. Due to the delay that legislature caused, the new program is now expected to be complete in January of 2009. I know that this will be upsetting to some because of the long wait and I do apologize on behalf of the committee.
