 Number 444                                                                    
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN SHARP brought up SB 210 as the next order of business                
 before the Senate State Affairs Committee.                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR LEMAN made a motion to adopt the Senate State Affairs                 
 Committee substitute for SB 210.                                              
 Number 448                                                                    
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN SHARP, hearing no objection, stated the committee                    
 substitute was adopted.  The chairman stated he spoke with the                
 prime sponsor about the major intentions of the committee                     
 substitute, and he had no problems with it.                                   
                                                                               
 SENATOR DUNCAN asked what the committee substitute would do to the            
 level of taxation.                                                            
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN SHARP stated the level of taxation would be the same.  The           
 only changes are that there will be no indexing and we added                  
 legislative intent.  But the tax rates are exactly the same.  He              
 noted that there will be a new fiscal note, due to removal of the             
 indexing.  The chairman asked the pleasure of the committee.                  
                                                                               
 Number 470                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR LEMAN made a motion to discharge SB 210 from the Senate               
 State Affairs Committee with individual recommendations.                      
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN SHARP, hearing no objection, stated SB 210 was discharged            
 from the Senate State Affairs Committee.
