 COVERAGE) before the committee.                                               
                                                                               
 DWIGHT PERKINS, Special Assistant, Office of the Commissioner,                
 Department of Labor, stated the department's opposition to SB 160.            
 They believe the Employment Security Act already goes far enough in           
 excluding employment of children by their parents and excluding               
 employment of students by educational institutions.

 approved for calendaring.  SENATOR SALO objected.  The roll was               
 taken with the following result:  Senators Pearce, Sharp and Miller           
 voted "Yea" and Senators Duncan and Salo voted "Nay."  The Chairman
