          SB 244 CALCULATION OF STATE AID TO EDUCATION                        
 Number 001                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN GREEN called the Senate Health, Education and Social                 
 Services (HESS) Committee to order at 10:30 a.m. and introduced               
 SB 244  as the first order of business before the committee.  She             
 inquired as to the will of the committee.                                     
 SENATOR MILLER moved that SB 244 be moved out of committee with               
 individual recommendations.                                                   
 Number 017                                                                    
 SENATOR LEMAN objected.  He expressed concern with the approach the           
 bill uses to deal with the problem.  Senator Leman felt that the              
 foundation formula should be addressed in a more comprehensive                
 approach.  He wanted that concern to be forwarded to Senate                   
 Finance.  He removed his objection.                                           
 CHAIRMAN GREEN felt Senator Leman's concern was shared by many;               
 however, she was not sure that keeping it in HESS would get to the            
 needed solution.                                                              
 Hearing no objection, SB 244 passed out of committee.
