“The last time we had the support that we needed because the boats that we use to move materials and to bring results back have no headlights, so they are hardly used at night, but the Navy provided support because their boats have illumination.”

 “Fortunately, the law empowers the commission to seek the support of the military in moving materials to locations.”

“So, I assure you that we’re leaving no stone unturned in ensuring that we deploy promptly and will also get results out to the state capital in good time.”
