"You know that this is there a limited pool and at this point you know these types of slippage is affect the the rebels ability to move to that next critical stage but at the same time they they have that expertise and it's really I think critical that everyone kind of do their part in order for us to to finish that and to make that twenty twenty deadline Susan Fleming with the GAO whether it's in the Midwest or the north east there needs to be a very aggressive and proactive intervention by federal authorities make sure the deadline is met which is required by law but also that the potential market power or monopolistic power of these companies doesn't put your railroads at their unfair Mercedes and ultimately consumers in the entire country you you know you raise some important issues about the Northeast Corridor I mean software they are supplied by multiple vendors still have to work through a secure the wireless communications you have twenty boundaries that you still have to work through it's very complex and there's this a pretty significant challenges so Northeast Corridor is something that you know we've highlighted as well in addition to Chicago it's it's two of the trickiest parts of the country for different reasons I appreciate your being here and and thank you also this center thrown for his leadership on this issue over many years we've had a lot of conversations and he has provided a lot of good leadership and I really appreciate it thank you all senator if I could hear was remark it permissible yes there's northeast corner and I ask for this year's today is to put in perspective if you look at the equipment configurations they're required to support two different types of PTC systems on the Northeast Corridor there's forty different options among eight different railroads involving seven different vendors Ronald the Tory the man has been put on the supply industry and keep in mind some of these commuter railroads didn't initiate their engagement until around twenty fifteen and the law was passed in twenty oh eight so I'm not defending the supply industry but there's a little bit of blame on both sides of the equation here that's behind us we gotta figure out how to get this thing fixed sooner than later because we are behind the eight ball right now and so far as thirty seven percent in the computer industry as a whole now is it when you go to Chicago it's a TMS is basically one system and that's not to say it's gonna be easy but as I often tell the people in Chicago after seven serving for different corporate flags over a third of my career that can be Chicago's worst blizzard personal story if they don't get PTC right I want avoid any unfairness and I apologize for going over in time but hollow project involved four hundred thousand people across the United States in thousands of different companies making this space suit and the rockets and the craft that carried the astronauts and somehow they put it all together so America can do it other countries have done it and I understand the complexity and the challenges but you know I've been a long time advocate of avoiding any further delay and this point high and very doubtful that any excuses for the delay easy for me to say here on the Dyess but I hope that you all will do your best thank you the others soon jurors as a follow up Germans back and I just had one quick question he's and told me allow me to ask it but you've talked a lot about this vendor supply constraint on implementation schedules and I would direct this to you ms Flemming because in your testimony discussed that affects specifically but have issues with supply constraints in your view improved since the end of twenty eighteen they got worse I think I think they're about the same yeah no I I think that the difference is that you know everybody is really trying to work through this it's got everyone Scott never is attention our attention everyone's attention but it's there is a limited pool and everybody is working toward that same deadline and you have only four of relative cross the finish line our own and everyone is looking for there are a lot of plans and their implementation schedule to get here to but the same time when you encounter a software glitch or I came as the locomotive memory these are things that have to be worked through because you have to get it right so I I think unfortunately read a critical juncture I don't know if there's a better worse I think unfortunately we we really need the vendors and we need at their a game and we need to cross that finish line and get it right thank you thank you Mister well done thank you all we help them parked on a series of roll call votes on on the floor of the Senate which were unexpected I want to thank all the witnesses for indulging a symptom of being with this today on a very important topic we remain hopeful but watch full and we we look forward to your suggestions the hearing record will remain open for two weeks during this time senators are asked to submit any questions for the record upon receipt the witnesses are requested to submit their written answers to the committee as soon as possible but by no later than Wednesday August twenty eighth two thousand ninety thank you very much and with that we include the hearing with the thanks of the members senator

double down on our efforts if we're to meet the goals set out in the bold ten year federal initiative championed by the NIH and the CDC and by our special guest with us here today doctor Anthony Fauci and doctor John Brooks now here the Bloomberg school of public health we've been talking about the power of public health the power that comes from doing the fundamental research and then translating

It's its frame. It was the same, but frame was covered with the silverware it was all pasted on and it, and it was cellophane over the entire frame. And then for the strings instead, they were barbed wire that was constructed for the heart. And this was Dali's present to dad with this weird looking object sat in our, our. Living room, I guess, for maybe five or six months and then when day Susan says, I can't stand this thing. This is awful. Who would ever want anything like that? And she went and she took it to the garbage and we have no no idea whether that garbage men is where two hundred and sixty million dollars. Gilbert said what it would be worth today.

Thanks for the harp. And if you ever come this way, I'd be happy to be smeared by you as long as I could return the favor. So he's basically saying if you come to America, we can paint each other easy to say, oh, what would that be worth it? If you knew Susan it was just a harped in the one could play. Right. Hell, do we need it for? She was really proud. No. Radical practical right in right free since. Right. Boy. Oh, boy, your great, great, great grandparents. Could.

So I worked on the book for a couple of years that I spent a couple of weeks with her in Rancho Mirage, and then we corresponded lot night visited again, but we we've talked on the phone. We wrote letters and things and she was just really great about it. But what I noticed is she didn't wanna finish the book. She wanted to keep working on the book sweeter by that why we never finished. Yeah. I'll tell you, I'll tell you I did try to get her to talk about the Dalai visit and the play. And this is not something you'd put on the jacket for a blurb, because I asked her what she thought of it, and she said an absolute piece of crap in a waste of time.
