….

Hilbert. Ms. Moseley, I’m going to apologize to you personally for the way that you were verbally assaulted earlier. That was inappropriate and as the chair of this committee I should have intervened. And so, I’m going to apologize to you for not intervening and, as a matter of fact, to all of those gathered, for me not intervening on that. So, but I did want to apologize to you personally for that. We have disagreements. That’s what government is all about. To a certain extent you’re going to have differing opinions, but we can address those in a civil manner and, in my opinion, that was not done earlier. And, I’ll certainly be taking that up with Mr. Tyler. But, I did want to apologize to you.
