  CHAIRMAN CARL MOSES called the meeting to order at 10:34                     
  p.m., noted the members in attendance, and informed the                      
  committee that SJR 17 was on the calendar with the                           
  recommendations for two copier replacements, the fourth                      
  floor electrical upgrade and the first floor carpet                          
  SJR 17 - MAGNUSON FISHERY CONSRV & MGT ACT                                   
  REPRESENTATIVE RAMONA BARNES moved to pass CSSJR 17(JUD)                     
  from committee with individual recommendations.                              
  CHAIRMAN MOSES asked if there were objections.  Hearing                      
  none, it was so ordered.                                                     
  CHAIRMAN MOSES, moving on to the copier replacement                          
  approval, identified that the two machines that need                         
  replacement as the one outside the Judiciary Committee room                  
  and the one on the fourth floor near Representative Gary                     
  Davis' office.                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE BARNES moved to approve the replacement of                    
  both copiers.                                                                
  advised members that there have been numerous problems with                  
  both machines.  One machine is ten years old, the other is                   
  six years old.  Staff in the offices nearest these machines                  
  have to use them, and they are broken down quite often.                      
  CHAIRMAN MOSES clarified that one machine is waiting on a                    
  replacement part, then asked if the legislature could get by                 
  with them until the end of session.                                          
  MS. STOOPS advised members that the same problem would occur                 
  next year, and the copiers would need replacement.  She said                 
  the part that has been ordered may not even fix the problem.                 
  CHAIRMAN MOSES said there would be seven months of                           
  unproductive time during the interim.                                        
  MS. STOOPS said that Legislative Affairs could put off the                   
  actual purchase of the machines until November, if the                       
  committee were to approve the purchase, the funds could be                   
  encumbered now.  She added that session expenses will lapse                  
  a great deal of money.                                                       
  REPRESENTATIVE BARNES noted that if the machines continue to                 
  break down, more money will go into repairs.                                 
  MS. STOOPS noted that both machines are on a maintenance                     
  CHAIRMAN MOSES said that the funds can be encumbered now,                    
  yet replacement of both machines should not take place until                 
  November 1994 unless the current machines blow up.  Chairman                 
  Moses approved the replacement and asked if there was                        
  further discussion.  Hearing none, it was so ordered.                        
  CHAIRMAN MOSES noted the next topic on the agenda was the                    
  fourth floor electrical upgrade.                                             
  REPRESENTATIVE BARNES moved that the committee adopt the                     
  recommendation to complete the upgrade.                                      
  CHAIRMAN MOSES asked about the details of the upgrade.                       
  MALCOLM McGREGOR, BUILDING MANAGER, DIVISION OF                              
  identified that the fourth floor electrical outlets have                     
  never been upgraded.  Additional power was supplied to the                   
  fourth floor a few years back, but the outlets are 15 years                  
  old.  Current staff could do most of the work, replace the                   
  outlets, replaster the walls, then repaint the rooms.  An                    
  electrical engineer would be needed to oversee the work.  He                 
  added that the work would be done over the next interim.                     
  CHAIRMAN MOSES asked if there were questions or further                      
  discussion.  Hearing none, it was so ordered.                                
  CHAIRMAN MOSES advised members of the next topic, the first                  
  floor carpet replacement.                                                    
  REPRESENTATIVE BARNES moved to adopt the recommendation to                   
  replace the carpet.                                                          
  CHAIRMAN MOSES asked if there was discussion.  Hearing none,                 
  it was so ordered.                                                           
  CHAIRMAN MOSES adjourned the meeting at 10:40 a.m.
