DNR supports HB 307.                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR ELTON  said his  notes reflect that  when the bill  was in                                                              
the  House, the  department  was  neutral and  asked  if they  had                                                              
changed their position.                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MS. CARROLL said she had misspoke  at that time. The department is                                                              
neutral on the bill.                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
CHAIRMAN TORGERSON noted that there  were a lot of shallow oil and                                                              
gas incentives on the books. Some  are being used and some aren't.
