 SENATOR KELLY announced  HB 497  (OFFICERS OF UTILITY COOPERATIVES)           
 to be up for consideration.                                                   
                                                                               
 REPRESENTATIVE JOE GREEN said this bill simply adds to the names of           
 the officers of electric and telephone cooperatives.  The current             
 situation with cooperatives says that the chief executive officer             
 is called the general manager by the REA and there are various                
 managers below that.  The Board of Directors has a president, vice            
 president, secretary, and treasurer.                                          
                                                                               
 SENATOR SHARP asked if this bill allowed the president to be a non            
 elected member.  REPRESENTATIVE GREEN answered yes.                           
                                                                               
 Number 470                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR LINCOLN pointed out an error in drafting in placement of              
 the word "or."  REPRESENTATIVE GREEN agreed and said it was correct           
 on page 5.                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR KELLY announced a recess from 2:20 p.m. - 2:21 p.m.                   
                                                                               
 SENATOR LINCOLN offered a conceptual amendment saying "or" would be           
 after "president" and after "vice president."  There were no                  
 objections and it was adopted.                                                
                                                                               
 SENATOR RIEGER moved to pass HB 497 from committee with individual            
 recommendations.  There were no objections and it was so ordered.
