CECIL ELLIOT, STAFF,  REPRESENTATIVE MIKE HAWKER, understood                                                                    
that the committee had a CS to offer.                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair Stoltze  stated that there was  a CS for HB  63 and                                                                    
inquired if the  sponsors had seen it.  Ms. Elliot responded                                                                    
in  the affirmative,  but added  that Representative  Hawker                                                                    
preferred  a  clean  sunset bill  rather  than  establishing                                                                    
policy in  a sunset bill;  however, the sponsor  would defer

applied to the lawyer members.  She believed that there were

Co-Chair Stoltze interjected that  there were 3 non-attorney                                                                    
members on the board.                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
Representative  Holmes  was  not sure  if  the  non-attorney

Co-Chair  Stoltze  indicated  that   there  had  been  equal

DANIEL GEORGE,  STAFF, REPRESENTATIVE BILL  STOLTZE, replied

an  audit   had  made  recommendations  to   increase  that.                                                                    
Additionally, there  was the  voluntary hour  component that

Representative Gara  would consider  the bill and  listen to                                                                    
what people had  to say on the House Floor;  however, he did
