  TAPE 95-24, SIDE A                                                           
 Number 001                                                                    
        HB 328 DISCOUNT FOR STATE MUSEUM VISIT BY GROUPS                      
 CHAIRMAN KELLY called the Senate Labor and Commerce Committee                 
 meeting to order at 3:20 p.m. and announced HB 328 to be up for               
 ROD MOURANT, Legislative Aide to Representative Pete Kott, said               
 that state museums have long negotiated discount rates with tour              
 groups, but a recent attorney general's opinion, issued last                  
 October, stated that the past practice may be beyond the scope of             
 regulatory authority that the agency possesses in statute.                    
 Consequently, HB 328 would allow museums that authority.                      
 SENATOR TORGERSON moved to pass HB 328 from committee with                    
 individual recommendations.  There were no objections and it was so           
 SENATOR KELLY adjourned the meeting at 3:22 p.m.
