  CHAIRMAN MILLER  called the Senate Rules Committee meeting to order          
 at 10:45 a.m.                                                                 
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN MILLER brought  SB 43  (ARCHITECTS, ENGINEERS, LAND                  
 SURVEYORS) before the committee.  Hearing no discussion, he asked             
 for the pleasure of the committee.                                            
                                                                               
 SENATOR PEARCE moved and asked unanimous consent SB 43 be approved            
 for calendaring.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                    
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN MILLER brought  SB 98  (WELFARE REFORM: TEMPORARY ASSIST.            
 PROGRAM) before the committee and directed attention to a draft               
 Rules CS, which has one change that is technical in nature on page            
 38.  He explained that the Finance Committee adopted an amendment             
 which basically denies a commercial fishing license or a crew                 
 member license if there is arrearage on back child support.                   
 However, it also included a vessel license and it was not the                 
 intent to go after the vessel itself so the Rules CS deletes that             
 type of license.                                                              
                                                                               
 SENATOR PEARCE moved the adoption of CSSB 98(RLS).  Hearing no                
 objection, the Chairman stated the motion carried.                            
                                                                               
 SENATOR PEARCE moved and asked unanimous consent CSSB 98(RLS) be              
 approved for calendaring.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.           
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN MILLER brought  SB 264  (LIMIT SUSPENDED IMPOSITION OF               
 SENTENCE) before the committee.  Hearing no discussion, he asked              
 for the pleasure of the committee.

 asked for the pleasure of the committee.                                      
 SENATOR PEARCE moved and asked unanimous consent  SB 303  (MANAGEMENT         
 OF CONSTIT BUDGET RESERVE FUND) be approved for calendaring.
