  HOUSE BILL NO. 460                                                           
                                                                               
                                                                               
                                1                                              
                                                                               
                                                                               
       "An Act relating  to bail after conviction  for various                 
       felonies  if the defendant  has certain previous felony                 
       convictions."                                                           
  Representative  Navarre explained  that  HB 460  would  deny                 
  bail,  while  awaiting  sentencing or  pending  appeal,  for                 
  persons who were  previously convicted of sexual  assault in                 
  the second or third degrees, sexual abuse of  a minor in the                 
  second or third degree and stalking in the first degree.  He                 
  maintained  that these individuals  have been shown  to be a                 
  threat to society.   He noted  that fiscal notes  associated                 
  with the legislation are zero.                                               
                                                                               
  Representative  Brown  asked  for  further clarification  of                 
  language  on  page  2,  line   2.    Representative  Navarre                 
  explained that bail would  be denied if there is  a previous                 
  sexual assault and felony conviction.                                        
                                                                               
  Representative  Navarre  MOVED  to  report  HB  460  out  of                 
  Committee  with  individual  recommendations  and  with  the                 
  accompanying fiscal note.  There  being NO OBJECTION, it was                 
  so ordered.                                                                  
                                                                               
  HB  460  was reported  out  of  Committee with  a  "do pass"                 
  recommendation and with  five zero fiscal notes,  two by the                 
  Department of Administration, one by  the Department of Law,                 
  one  by  the Department  of Public  Safety,  and one  by the                 
  Department of Corrections.
