 CHAIRMAN MILLER brought  SB 1003  (PUB.EMPLOYEES                              
 PAY/BENEFITS/CONTRACTS) before the committee as the first order of            
 business.                                                                     
                                                                               
 SENATOR DUNCAN inquired if the legislation incorporates all the               
 provisions that were in CSSB 152(FIN) am (PUB. EMPLOYEE                       
 PAY/BENEFITS/CONTRACTS/RIP), which passed during the regular                  
 session.  CHAIRMAN MILLER acknowledged that it does with the                  
 exception of taking out the one health benefit requiring the                  
 retiree to pay one-half of the dependent coverage for their spouse            
 and replaces it with a 10-year vesting provision.                             
                                                                               
 SENATOR SHARP moved and asked unanimous consent CSSB 1003(FIN) be             
 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           
 stated the calendaring motion passed.                                         
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN MILLER brought  SB 1005  (APPROP: MISCELLANEOUS) before the          
 committee.                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR DUNCAN moved that a Rules CS be adopted deleting all                  
 references to the language "contingent upon Section 6 of this Act"            
 as well as deleting Section 6.  CHAIRMAN MILLER objected.  The roll           
 was taken with the following result:  Senators Salo and Duncan                
 voted "Yea" and Senators Pearce, Sharp and Miller voted "Nay."  The           
 Chairman stated the motion failed.                                            
                                                                               
 SENATOR PEARCE moved and asked unanimous consent SB 1005 be                 
 approved for calendaring.  SENATOR DUNCAN objected.  The roll was             
 taken with the following result:  Senators Sharp, Pearce and Miller           
 voted "Yea" and Senators Salo and Duncan voted "Nay."  The Chairman           
 stated the calendaring motion carried.                                        
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN MILLER brought  SB 1009  (PROGRAM RECEIPTS) before the               
 committee.  Hearing no discussion, he asked for the pleasure of the           
 committee.                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR SHARP moved and asked unanimous consent SB 1009 be approved           
 for calendaring.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                    
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN MILLER brought  SB 1010  (MISC. MOTOR VEHICLE AMENDMENTS)            
 before the committee.  Hearing no discussion, he asked for the                
 pleasure of the committee.                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR PEARCE moved and asked unanimous consent SB 1010 be                   
 approved for calendaring.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.           
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN MILLER brought  SB 1011  (PUB SCHOOL                                 
 TRANS/CONSTRUCTION/STATE AID) before the committee.                           
                                                                               
 SENATOR DUNCAN noted the Senate concurred in the House amendments             
 to CSSB 244(FIN) am (STATE AID TO EDUCATION) on 6/3/96, and he                
 asked if SB 1011 was exactly like that bill.  CHAIRMAN MILLER                 
 responded that he thought it was, and SB 1011 was introduced just             
 as a backup measure.                                                          
                                                                               
 SENATOR PEARCE moved and asked unanimous consent SB 1011 be                   
 approved for calendaring.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.           
                                                                               
 There being no further business to come before the committee, the             
 meeting was adjourned at 7:10 p.m.
