 ordered.

 SENATOR HALFORD said the legislation, SB 56, was not needed,                  
 since the settlement money had already been deposited in the                  
 Constitutional Budget Reserve Fund.  The bill remains in                      
 committee.

 recommendations.  The motion failed on a 2-2 vote, with                       
 SENATOR LITTLE and SENATOR DONLEY voting in the affirmative.                  
                                                                               
 SENATOR TAYLOR presented SJR 3 (LIMITING TERMS OF LEGISLATORS)                
 and led a discussion on the bill.  Several committee members                  
 indicated they had amendments to offer as soon as they were                   
 completed.  SENATOR TAYLOR explained a vote on the bill would                 
 not be possible until next year, so there would be time for                   
 the amendments.  The bill remained in committee.                              
                                                                               
 There being no further business to come before the committee,                 
 the meeting was adjourned at 4:35 p.m.
