The printedhearing record remains the official version. Because electronic submissions are used toprepare both printed and electronic versions of the hearing record, the process of converting between various electronic formats may introduce unintentional errors or omissions. Such occur-rences are inherent in the current publication process and should diminish as the processis further refined.  iii C O N T E N T S Page  Advisories announcing the hearing........................................................................2WITNESSESProspective Payment Assessment Commission, Joseph P.
