Services, said SB 265 corrects  deficiencies, deals with obsolete                                                               
provisions,  and addresses  mistakes  in the  statutes. She  said                                                               
that the  Department of Law  (DOL) has determined that  this bill                                                               
makes important technical changes.

CHAIR FRENCH said  he has no questions because  he looked closely                                                               
at the  bill in a  previous committee. He  noted that there  is a

committee. Finding  no questions,  he moved Amendment  1, labeled

MS. KURTZ explained that the  previous committee thought that the                                                               
language  in  Section  6  was overly  complex  and  awkward.  The                                                               
amendment makes no substantive change  to the meaning of the bill                                                               
or to the underlying statute.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR COGHILL removed his objection.
