Bill Barney presented a framed quote from Theodore Roosevelt to each individual board member and read it aloud.

The board will continue this discussion during the disbursement process.

Motion seconded by Mary Lynn Worl and carried unanimously.
Bill Barney noted the bills before the State House and Senate that would limit malpractice caps was voted against. Discussion followed. Physician recruitment and retention will become an important issue.
