federal  government. The  amendment eliminates  the reference  to                                                               
federal  authority or  the federal  government as  it relates  to                                                               
state navigable waters.                                                                                                         
3:32:46 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR GIESSEL asked him to read lines  8-9 on page 1 as they will                                                               
read if Amendment 2 is adopted.                                                                                                 
3:32:59 PM                                                                                                                    
MR. HUTCHISON read: (1) "authorized by  law or regulation or by a

deleted.  In essence,  all references  to the  federal government                                                               
have been eliminated from the statute.                                                                                          
3:33:39 PM

Legislature, said he  didn't have anything to add, but  this is a                                                               
good  amendment  that clarifies  a  point  that would  allow  the                                                               
federal government to say a  state statute authorizes obstruction                                                               
of access  because it was  done pursuant to a  federal regulation                                                               
as in the Sturgeon case.                                                                                                        
CHAIR GIESSEL removed her objection.                                                                                            
SENATOR  COGHILL stated  that the  sponsor of  the bill  has been                                                               
working with him and is agreeable to the amendment.                                                                             
CHAIR  GIESSEL, finding  no further  objection, said  Amendment 2                                                               
was adopted. She found no further discussion on the bill.                                                                       
SENATOR COSTELLO moved to report  HB 216, version 29-LS0995\N, as                                                               
amended,  from  committee  with  individual  recommendations  and
