Jennings argued that a funding mechanism formally should be established by the authority along with approving the compliance function.

He suggested the board create a financing committee to review the issue. Traub said Jenning’s proposal to develop a budget and establish a committee to help to do that will put on the agenda for ANIZDA’s next meeting Oct. 4.
