|Budget Issue:||Project management oversight services|
|Program:||High-Speed Rail Authority|
|Finding or Recommendation:||Approve funding for external professional services, but reject budget bill language that would allow the High Speed Rail Authority to administratively establish an unspecified number of additional permanent positions. This language would not allow for appropriate legislative oversight of the establishment of new permanent state positions.|
