CHAIR  COSTELLO reconvened  the meeting  and advised  that public                                                               
testimony was  not noticed for  this meeting. She added  that the                                                               
bill goes to  the Senate Judiciary Committee  next where feedback                                                               
will be a part of the process.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  GARDNER said  she would  probably object  to moving  the

SENATOR KEVIN  MEYER, sponsor  of SB  47, thanked  Chair Costello                                                               
for her  work on the  bill. He agreed  that the first  version of                                                               
the  bill  was probable  overly  ambitious.  He agreed  with  the                                                               
compromises in  Section 15. He  noted the importance of  the bill                                                               
for  dealers   and  consumers.  He  highlighted   the  difficulty                                                               
associated  with  getting  warranty  work  done  and  stated  his                                                               
preference to have it addressed in Section 15.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR   HUGHES   expressed   appreciation  for   the   changes,                                                               
particularly the concern she voiced about dealer location.
