                 Department of Safety, Department  of Law, and                 
                 the Department  of Health &  Social Services,                 
                 and  pending  a  new  fiscal  note  from  the

  SENATE BILL NO. 276:                                                         
                                                                               
       An  Act  relating  to   criminal  justice  information;

       effective date.                                                         
                                                                               
  CO-CHAIR PEARCE announced that CSSB  276(FIN) work draft "K"                 
  was before  the committee.    In a  previous Senate  Finance                 
  Committee meeting  amendments 1 and 2 from the Department of                 
  Law had  been ADOPTED and included  in work draft "K".   She                 
  said that the  bill had been  held over and Senators  Kelly,                 
  Sharp, Rieger  and Dean  J. Guaneli,  Chief, Legal  Services                 
  Section, Criminal  Division,  Department of  Law,  had  been                 
  asked  to  draft  new  language  on  legislative  access  to                 
  records, now presented as amendment 4.                                       
                                                                               
  Co-chair Pearce also announced that her amendment 3 was also                 
  before the committee.   She  explained that Senator  Halford                 
  had requested  the fingerprinting  language removed from  SB
  276. The  fingerprinting language  would stand  alone in  SB
  321.  She  said the Department  of Law was comfortable  with                 
  amendment 3  if SB  321 would  pass.   Co-chair Frank  MOVED                 
  conceptual  amendment   3.    No  objection   being  raised,                 
  amendment 3 was ADOPTED for incorporation within the Finance                 
  Committee Substitute for SB 276.                                             
                                                                               
  Senator Sharp MOVED amendment 4 which added language so that                 
  the  legislature, for  official  legislative business  only,                 
  could  upon  written   request,  receive  criminal   justice                 
  information.   No objection  being raised,  amendment 4  was                 
  ADOPTED  for  incorporation  within  the  Finance  Committee                 
  Substitute for SB 276.                                                       
                                                                               
  Senator Rieger asked if the  fiscal note for the  Department                 
  of Corrections in the amount of $181,874 would be reduced to                 
  zero because of  amendment 3, removal of  the fingerprinting                 
  language.    Co-chair  Pearce said  that  the  Department of                 
  Corrections would provide  an updated fiscal note.   Senator                 
  Rieger alerted  the committee that  the fiscal note  for the                 
  Department of  Corrections should  be looked  at closely  in                 
  conference committee.  Senator Sharp  also raised a question                 
  regarding  travel  and personal  services  for FY95  in that                 
  fiscal  note.    Co-chair  Pearce  said  that SB  276,  once                 
  reported out of committee, would be  held until a new fiscal                 
  note could be received for the Department of Corrections.                    
                                                                               
  Senator  Sharp  MOVED  for  passage  of CSSB  276(FIN)  from                 
  committee  with individual  recommendations.   No  objection                 
  being raised, CSSB  276(FIN) was  REPORTED OUT of  committee                 
  with a "do  pass," zero fiscal  notes for the Department  of                 
  Public  Safety,  Department  of Law  and  the  Department of                 
  Health  &  Social Services.   The  bill  was held  in Senate                 
  Finance  until  a  new  fiscal  note  was  received  for the                 
  Department  of   Corrections.    Co-chairs   Pearce,  Frank,                 
  Senators  Sharp,  Kelly, Rieger  and  Kerttula signed  a "do                 
  pass."
