I propose Senator Joan Freeman. She is eminently qualified and has a long record working in child mental health. She has much experience and knowledge in, as well as strong commitment to, the area. It is also a priority for the committee.

I second Senator Joan Freeman's nomination.


As there are no other nominations, I declare Senator Joan Freeman elected as Vice Chairman. I congratulate her and look forward to working with her, bringing the best we can to this committee.
