Representative Joule  replied that the fiscal  note included

had been busy  for the duration of the task  force. He noted                                                                    
that committee members did engage  primarily at the meetings

Co-Chair   Stoltze  remarked   that   the  information   was

Representative  Wilson could  not vote  for the  bill if  it

She  believed  the fiscal  note  should  be dropped  to  one

Co-Chair Stoltze  was mixed on  the bill, but  was currently                                                                    
leaning towards a "do not pass."                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
Representative Edgmon  was also  concerned about  the fiscal

against the  committee's actions throughout the  session. He                                                                    
looked  at  page  3  of  the bill  and  discussed  that  any                                                                    
research  conducted at  the outset  would  be secondary.  He                                                                    
surmised that perhaps the need  for more staff would develop

Co-Chair Stoltze did not believe  that would be the case. He

Representative  Edgmon surmised  that  a range  22 would  be
