Whereas, the sergeant at arms has delivered a copy of both this resolution and the senate calendar which includes consideration of this resolution to Senator Risser's senate office, thereby providing additional notice to the senator, pursuant to Senate Rule 13n; and
Whereas, pursuant to Senate Rule 13n, Senator Risser has an opportunity to be heard, on the session day on which this resolution is before the senate, on the matter of whether or not penalties and costs for being absent without leave may be imposed on the senator; and
