Is anybody aware of anything that Murphy either looks to champion while on this committee or minimize? Has he stated publicly need for any type of reform?

Tried doing some digging on this last night. If there is some rule change he wants to champion, he’s done a good job of keeping it out of the public light.

Holmgren was on the Committee as well, but I don’t remember him pushing for anything specific either.
