        Attorney General Al Lance questioned Item #3 for the University of Idaho if transporting one vehicle was to be reimbursed up to $4,000. Steve Kenyon reported the transporting of the vehicle was included in the moving reimbursement request of up to $4,000, which was approved by the Sub-Committee. Al Lance asked that the request be reworded and submitted to the next board meeting. Secretary of State Pete Cenarrusa asked if the request could be reworded and approved today so University of Idaho would not have to wait a month. Al Lance made a motion to approve the Consent Agenda rewording Item #3 to authorize Joel Thomas moving reimbursement from West Lafayette, Indiana to Moscow, Idaho to include one vehicle for a total up to $4,000. Secretary of State Pete Cenarrusa seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.
