the changes to  SB 100 proposed under Version U.   First, Version

      municipality provided opportunity to opt out of the

REPRESENTATIVE CLAMAN objected.                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN spoke to Amendment 1.   He said there is a                                                               
concern regarding  the ability,  under SB 100,  of municipalities                                                               
to  put liens  on properties  for purposes  of utilities,  and he                                                               
indicated  this  concern  is  accompanied  by  the  opinion  that                                                               
municipalities  should not  be allowed  to  do so  if a  property                                                               
owner  has never  used and  has no  intention of  ever using  the                                                               
utility.   He said  Amendment 1 would  provide the  opportunity a                                                               
property  owner to  declare he/she  is  not using  a service  and                                                               
therefore does not want to pay for it.                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
1:34:54 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE CLAMAN maintained his objection.                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
1:34:59 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
A  roll call  vote was  taken.   Representative Eastman  voted in                                                               
favor  of Amendment  1  to Version  U.   Representatives  Stutes,                                                               
Kito, Reinbold, Claman, and LeDoux  voted against it.  Therefore,                                                               
Amendment 1 failed to be adopted by a vote of 1-5.
