Melhorn

Thank you, Mr. Chair. The Member is correct; we have included increased funding in 2010-11 to account for expected fuel

costs. The estimates are based on assumption of about $70 per barrel oil, and if fuel costs remain in that range, then that would be sufficient. If fuel costs differ from that significantly, if prices increase significantly, then that may change.

Michael Miltenberger Thebacha

Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I’m here to present Supplementary Appropriation (Infrastructure Expenditures) No. 1, 2010-2011. This document outlines a decrease of $300,000 for operations expenditures and an increase of $1.7 million for capital investment expenditures in the 2010-2011 fiscal year. The total supplementary request is $1.4 million.

This supplementary appropriation includes:

1. $1.7 million for the Department of

Transportation to complete the project description report on the portion of the Mackenzie Highway from Wrigley to the

Dempster Highway. The costs incurred in 2010-11 will be partially offset from a contribution by the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency.

2. A decrease of $300,000 for the Department of

Transportation to advance funding approved for the Yellowknife bypass road in 2010-11 into the 2009-10 fiscal year.

I am prepared to review the details of the supplementary appropriation document. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
