 198(STA).  She pointed out that the bill makes more people eligible           
 for permanent fund dividends, but it carries a zero fiscal note and           
 she wants to see if the Senate Finance Committee would like to take           
 a look at it.

 CSHB 198(STA) for calendaring.  Hearing no objection, it was so               
 ordered.
