       SB 141 CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMITS                                        
                                                                               
       TUCKERMAN BABCOCK answered questions of the  committee.                 
       SENATOR  PARNELL MOVED  to rescind  previous action  in                 
       Reporting Out  CSSB 141(FIN).   Without objection,  the                 
       MOTION CARRIED and  the bill was before  the committee.                 
       SENATOR  PARNELL  MOVED Amendment  #5.   SENATOR  ADAMS                 
       objected, then withdrew his objection.   There being no                 
       further objection, Amendment #5  was ADOPTED.   SENATOR                 
       DONLEY  MOVED the bill  from committee  with individual                 
       recommendations.  SENATOR ADAMS objected.   By a 6 to 1                 
       vote, CSSB 141(FIN)  was REPORTED  OUT with a  previous                 
       fiscal note (5.0)  and two  previous zero fiscal  notes                 
       from the Department of Public Safety.                                   
                                                                               
                                                                               
  SENATE BILL NO. 141                                                          
  "An Act relating to permits to carry concealed handguns; and                 
  relating to the possession of firearms."                                     
                                                                               
  COCHAIR  SHARP  noted  that CSSB  141(FIN),  which  had been                 
  reported  out, was  before the  committee with  incorporated                 
  amendments.  There  was an  additional amendment before  the                 
  committee that had been suggested by the drafter.                            
                                                                               
  TUCKERMAN BABCOCK, Legislative Aide to Senator  Green, noted                 
  that the language  in the amendment met  the legal counsel's                 
  concern about due  process, but  it left the  effect of  the                 
  amendment intact.                                                            
                                                                               
  SENATOR  PARNELL  MOVED   to  rescind  previous  action   in                 
  Reporting Out CSSB 141(FIN).   Without objection, the MOTION                 
  CARRIED.                                                                     
                                                                               
  SENATOR PARNELL MOVED Amendment #5.  SENATOR ADAMS objected.                 
  He asked  for two examples  of a  class A misdemeanor.   MR.                 
  BABCOCK  replied  that  stalking  and  misconduct  involving                 
  weapons  were  examples.     SENATOR   ADAMS  withdrew   his                 
  objection.  There  being no further objection,  Amendment #5                 
  was ADOPTED.                                                                 
                                                                               
  SENATOR ADAMS stated his objection to the bill.  It went too                 
  far by allowing  weapons to be  carried in state  buildings,                 
  courthouses,  domestic violence  centers,  and other  places                 
  where guns shouldn't  be.   There was additional  discussion                 
  about federal restrictions regarding where concealed weapons                 
  were allowed.                                                                
                                                                               
  COCHAIR SHARP brought  up a fiscal  note from the Office  of                 
  the Governor  (OMB) for  purchase of  lock boxes  in various                 
  locations.  He wanted  to zero-out the item.   SENATOR ADAMS                 
  opposed the suggestion.  There was discussion about security                 
  in airports and courthouses.                                                 
                                                                               
  SENATOR DONLEY MOVED the bill from committee with individual                 
  recommendations.  SENATOR ADAMS objected.  By a 6 to 1 vote,                 
  CSSB 141(FIN) was  REPORTED OUT with a previous  fiscal note                 
                                                                               
                                                                               
  (5.0) and two previous zero fiscal notes from the Department                 
  of Public Safety.
