SENATOR HOLLIS FRENCH asked Mr.  LaBolle whether the bill sponsor                                                               
considered  broader  language that  would  capture  out of  state

MR.  LABOLLE responded  they did  consider that  but the  drafter                                                               
advised that it would open up a "legal rats nest."

SENATOR  GENE  THERRIAULT asked  the  type  of restrictions  that                                                               
would be placed on people.                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE CRAWFORD  responded the intent  is not to  limit a

attempt to prevent  that person from buying  alcohol there. Often

premises where alcohol is served  and also not to consume alcohol                                                               
but the intent of the bill  is not to restrict anyone from having

SENATOR THERRIAULT  noted that he had  a bill that gives  a judge                                                               
the power  to order someone  not to drink  for a period  of, say,                                                               
ten  years. He  asked  Representative Crawford  whether he  would                                                               
consider adding something like that to HB 190.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE CRAWFORD said he would consider it.
