  Number 001                                                                   
  The Senate Rules  Committee was called to  order by Chairman                 
  Jacko at 1:08 p.m.                                                           
  CHAIRMAN JACKO  introduced CSHCR 10(HES) an  (FEDERAL-AID HY                 
  FUNDING/DRUG ENFORCEMENT) as the first order of business and                 
  opened the public hearing on the legislation.                                
  SENATOR BERT SHARP,  Chairman of  the Senate  Transportation                 
  Committee, noted that CSHCR 10(HES) am  is the same as CSSCR
  2(FIN) which  was passed out  of the Finance  Committee that                 
  The resolution states that the legislature is opposed to the                 
  requirement by the  federal government that the  state enact                 
  legislation to revoke  or suspend the driver's  license of a                 
  person convicted of a drug offense  if the drug offense does                 
  not involve  the operation of a motor  vehicle, aircraft, or                 
  watercraft.  Senator Sharp said the people at the Department                 
  of  Transportation  &   Public  Facilities  feel   that  the                 
  resolution will be acceptable to the feds, and that more and                 
  more states are going to this resolution to  accommodate the                 
  mandate that would cost  a reduction of close to  nine to 10                 
  million dollars the first two years and each year thereafter                 
  if the state dealt to conform to the federal mandate.                        
  SENATOR RIEGER moved and asked  unanimous consent that CSHCR
  10(HES)  am  be  passed  out  of committee  with  individual                 
  recommendations and that  it be approved for  calendaring at                 
  the Chair's discretion.   Hearing  no objection,  it was  so                 
  CHAIRMAN JACKO brought  SB 42 (LOCAL SALES  TAX ON ALCOHOLIC                 
  BEVERAGES)  before  the  committee  as  the final  order  of                 
  SENATOR HALFORD moved  and asked unanimous consent  that SB
  42 be approved  for calendaring  at the Chair's  discretion.                 
  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                                     
  There  being  no   further  business  to  come   before  the                 
  committee, the meeting was adjourned at 1:11 p.m.
