 CHAIRMAN HALFORD brought  SB 195  (PHYSICAL/OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY              
 BOARDS EXT.) before the committee as the next order of business.              
                                                                               
 SENATOR RIEGER explained that the committee had adopted a Rules CS            
 at its 4/20/94 meeting.  However, when the new language was adopted           
 in the Rules CS, it necessitated a title change, and the new                  
 committee substitute before the committee makes that change.                  
                                                                               
 SENATOR RIEGER moved that CSSB 195(RLS) (dated 4/21/94, version o)            
 be adopted in lieu of the original committee substitute.  Hearing             
 no objection, the motion carried.                                             
                                                                               
 SENATOR RIEGER moved that CSSB 195(RLS) be passed out of committee            
 with individual recommendations.  Hearing no objection, it was so             
 ordered.                                                                      
                                                                               
 SENATOR RIEGER moved and asked unanimous consent that CSSB 195(RLS)           
 be approved for calendaring at the Chair's discretion.  Hearing no            
 objection, it was so ordered.                                                 
 CHAIRMAN HALFORD brought CSHB 454(FIN) (APPROP: COST OF OIL/GAS               
 LITIGATION) before the committee.  The legislation was before the             
 committee on 4/18/94, and, at that time, a Senate CS was adopted              
 that changed the general fund to the constitutional budget reserve            
 fund.  Inadvertently, when that amendment was drafted, a title                
 amendment was included which wasn't necessary.   The new committee            
 substitute changes the title back to its original title.
