1:37:20 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR FRENCH announced  the consideration of CS for  HB 319 [CSHB
319(FIN)]. Public  testimony was  taken at the  previous hearing.                                                               
He asked Ms. Lucky to discuss  how the command to execute federal                                                               
firearms forms in Section 5 will work in practice.                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
JULI LUCKY, Staff  to Representative Mike Hawker,  said this puts                                                               
a duty on the chief law  enforcement officer of a jurisdiction to                                                               
execute a form,  but the bill doesn't specify a  remedy if that's                                                               
not done.                                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR FRENCH  asked if the failure  to execute the form  might be                                                               
the basis of an ethics  complaint against a chief law enforcement                                                               
officer or chief administrative officer.                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
MS.  LUCKY said  she could  do additional  research on  that, but                                                               
since  there isn't  a remedy  in  statute it's  unclear what  the                                                               
remedy might be for a violation of this section.                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  FRENCH announced  he would  hold  HB 319  in committee  to                                                               
allow time  to look  at the  options. I don't  want to  create an                                                               
expectation  that  can't  be enforced  or  put  municipal  police                                                               
departments across the state in a bind, he said.
