  SENATOR RANDY  PHILLIPS brought  SB 191 (MUNICIPAL  PROPERTY                 
  TAX LIMITATIONS) before the committee and directed attention                 
  to a proposed committee substitute.                                          
  SENATOR  LEMAN  moved  that  CSSB   191  (CRA)  be  adopted.                 
  SENATORS ZHAROFF and ADAMS objected.                                         
  Number 215                                                                   
  CAROL  CARROL,  staff  to  Senator  Jay Kerttula,  said  her                 
  understanding  is  that   the  committee  substitute  allows                 
  municipalities  to  exempt   certain  other  entities   from                 
  property  tax,  such  as  mobile  home  parks,  recreational                 
  vehicle  parks,  parking   lots,  real  property  used   for                 
  greenbelts,  and the  difference between  improvements  to a                 
  historical  building and the  assessed valuation  that would                 
  add to the assessed valuation of  a building beforehand.  It                 
  also  makes  the local  assessor  bear the  burden  of proof                 
  instead of the individual taxpayer if they have some kind of                 
  conflict with the assessed value.   She stated that  Senator                 
  Kerttula  does  not   have  a  position  on   the  committee                 
  Number 232                                                                   
  SENATOR RANDY PHILLIPS suggested  that because the committee                 
  substitute was recommended  by Senator Taylor and  he chairs                 
  the  Judiciary  Committee, which  is  the next  committee of                 
  referral, the  bill and  the draft  committee substitute  be                 
  sent to that committee for further consideration.                            
  SENATOR LEMAN  withdrew his motion  to adopt CSSB  191 (CRA)                 
  and  then  moved  to  pass  SB  191 out  of  committee  with                 
  individual recommendations.  Hearing no objection, it was so                 
  SENATOR  RANDY  PHILLIPS  noted  for  the  record  that  the                 
  concerns that Senator Taylor has and that he wanted added to                 
  this bill can be offered in the Judiciary Committee.
