  CHAIRMAN ROBIN TAYLOR  called the Judiciary Committee meeting to             
 order at 2:20 p.m. and announced HB 158 would not be heard on this            
 date.                                                                         
              HB 234 ADMINISTRATIVE ADJUDICATIONS                             
                                                                              
 SENATOR MILLER moved CSHB 234(JUD) out of committee with individual           
 recommendations.  There being no objection, the motion carried.               
           HB 219 PAROLE OF TERMINALLY ILL PRISONERS                          
                                                                              
 SENATOR MILLER moved CSHB 219(FIN) out of committee with individual           
 recommendations.  There being no objection, the motion carried.               
          HB 120 INDEMNIFICATION OF PUBLIC EMPLOYEES                          
                                                                              
 SENATOR GREEN moved CSHB 120 (FIN) out of committee with individual           
 recommendations.  SENATOR ADAMS objected and stated that there has            
 not been enough discussion on the Alaska Rules of Civil Procedure.            
 He expressed concern that if those rules are not understood when              
 the bill reaches the Senate floor, the bill will pass without the             
 rules.                                                                        
                                                                               
 SENATOR TAYLOR noted he shares Senator Adams' concerns, but due to            
 the late date, he intends to work on it before it arrives on the              
 Senate floor, and will provide committee members with additional              
 information.                                                                  
                                                                               
 A roll call vote was taken with the following result:  Senators               
 Green, Miller, and Taylor voted "yea," and Senators Ellis and Adams           
 voted "nay."  CSHB 120 (FIN) moved from committee with individual             
 recommendations.                                                              
                                                                               
 SENATOR TAYLOR adjourned the meeting at 2:24 p.m.
