    Senator Ryberg,
    I support your request for audit. Additionally I support Gov. Sanford if he has to fire the Commissioners for non-compliance of his request.
    I support the Governor being in direct control of the agency as part of his Cabinet.
    Before seeing any efforts by the state House or Senate to raise taxes I would like to see efforts made to account for what taxes the state currently raises. The unemployment agency is a good example. I think it is incumbent for all of us to be good stewards of what we have before we ask for more.

    Respectfully,
    Craig Bannecke
