  CHAIRMAN LEMAN  brought  SB 141  (CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMITS/FIREARM          
 POSSESS) before the committee and directed attention to a proposed            
 Rules CS.                                                                     
                                                                               
  SENATOR TOGERSON  moved the adoption of CSSB 141(RLS).   SENATOR           
 DUNCAN  objected and requested an explanation of the changes made in          
 the committee substitute.                                                     
                                                                               
  TUCKERMAN BABCOCK , staff to Senator Lyda Green who sponsored the            
 legislation, said the Rules CS clarifies actions taken by the                 
 Senate Finance Committee to prevent someone who is a repeat                   
 offender with a class A misdemeanor from applying for a permit if             
 they have repeat offenses during a six-year period.                           
                                                                               
 Another change is to Section 15 which, as worded, was ambiguous and           
 did not allow for a transition for a new resident who had a permit            
 from another state, nor did it have a time limit on the number of             
 days an individual could be in the state with an out-of-state                 
 permit.  It now provides an individual can be in the state for 120            
 days with an out-of-state permit, which allows the individual to              
 satisfy the 90-day requirement before applying for a new permit and           
 allows the department to satisfy the 30-day requirement for issuing           
 the permit.                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN LEMAN  asked if the objection to the adoption of the Rules          
 CS was maintained, and it was not.  He then stated CSSB 141(RLS)              
 was adopted.                                                                  
                                                                               
  SENATOR TORGERSON  moved CSSB 141(RLS) be approved for calendaring           
 at the discretion of the Chair.   SENATOR DUNCAN  objected.   CHAIRMAN        
 LEMAN  stated the calendaring motion carried on a 3-1 vote.
