In the preparation of this report, expenditure inputs were provided by WHS (Jackie Jackson).

Finally, it should be noted that the law firm of Wiley Rein and Fielding LLP completed a legal assessment at the direction and behest of the Commission. In spite of several reminders, the law firm has never completed administrative requirements to receive payment for its services. The estimated fee is $100,000.
