 CHAIRMAN RICK HALFORD called the Senate Rules Committee meeting to            
 order at 1:35 p.m.  He stated that all of the items on the                    
 committee calendar have had hearings and were before the committee            
 for calendaring motions.

 (RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS) be approved for calendaring at the              
 Chair's discretion.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                 
 The next order of business was  SB 329  (GRANT PROGRAM FOR VETERANS'     '    
 SERVICES).                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR LITTLE referred to page 1, lines 9 and 10, and asked what             
 type of "claims" this referred to.  LARRY STEVENS, staff to Senator           
 Jacko clarified that it is referring to administrative claims and             
 not legal claims.  He added that the language is the same as it               
 appears in regulations, although the regulations are somewhat more            
 extensive.                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR JACKO moved and asked unanimous consent that SB 329 be                
 approved for calendaring at the Chair's discretion.  Hearing no               
 objection, it was so ordered.                                                 
 SENATOR RIEGER moved and asked unanimous consent that  SB 322                 
 (DELAYS OF OIL AND GAS LEASE SALES) be approved for calendaring at            
 the Chair's discretion.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.             
 SENATOR JACKO moved and asked unanimous consent that  SB 242  (HOURS     S    
 FOR STATE OFFICES) be approved for calendaring at the Chair's                 
 discretion.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                         
 SENATOR LITTLE moved and asked unanimous consent that  SB 240                 
 (MUNICIPAL TAX CREDIT/HABITAT PROTECTION) be approved for                     
 calendaring at the Chair's discretion.  Hearing no objection, it              
 was so ordered.
