 Services Contract, which changes the termination date of the                  
 original contract to August 1, 1997.   CHAIRMAN KELLY  noted there            
 was no change in the dollar amount of the contract.

 $25,000 to $36,352.60.   PAM VARNI , Executive Director, Legislative

 Mr. Blankenship's contract through February 28, 1997.                         
                                                                               
  SENATOR LEMAN  moved the amendments to the Charles P. Meacham                
 Professional Services Contract and the Douglas L. Blankenship                 
 Professional Services Contract by approved.  Hearing no objection,            
  CHAIRMAN KELLY  stated the amendments were approved.                         
                                                                               
 There being no further business to come before the committee,                 
  CHAIRMAN KELLY  adjourned the meeting at 10:53 a.m.
