 The Conference Committee on SB 123 was called to order at 8:15 p.m.           
 by Representative Con Bunde, who was chairing the meeting.  All               
 Senate and House conferees were present.                                      
  SUMMARY INFORMATION                                                          
 Representative Brown moved a conceptual amendment which would take            
 the more generous numbers that are in the House version for the               
 vocational programs, and programs that have a default rate of 30              
 percent or more would fall under the more restricted numbers that             
 are in the Senate version.  Representative Bunde objected.  It was            
 pointed out by Representative Vezey that the conceptual amendment             
 would not be covered under the limited powers of free conference              
 granted to the committee.  Representative Brown withdrew her                  
 conceptual amendment.                                                         
 Representative Bunde offered a compromise amendment to CCS SB 123             
 on page 2, line 7:  Change "$3,000" to "$3,500."  Senator Green               
 moved adoption of the amendment.  There being no objection, the               
 amendment was adopted.                                                        
 Number 100                                                                    
 Senator Green moved the adoption of CCS SB 123.  There being no               
 objection, CCS SB 123 was adopted.                                            
 Number 105                                                                    
 Representative Brown moved that the committee rescind its action in           
 failing to adopt "House Amendment No. 3."  Senator Green objected.            
 After discussion on the amendment, a vote was taken and the                   
 rescinding motion failed on a 3-3 vote.                                       
 Number 205                                                                    
 Senator Ellis moved that the conference committee submit a Letter             
 of Intent for consideration on the House and Senate floors which              
 states that the Commission on Postsecondary Education will enforce            
 current statutes to reduce delinquency rates.  Hearing no                     
 objection, the motion carried.                                                
 Representative Vezey moved that CCS SB 123, as amended, be adopted.           
 A roll call was requested and taken with the following result:                
 Senator Green, Senator Phillips, Representative Bunde,                        
 Representative Vezey voted "Yea" and Representative Brown and                 
 Senator Ellis voted "Nay."  The motion carried on a 4-2 vote.                 
 The meeting was adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
