CHAIRMAN KELLY brought SB 236 before the committee and requested a             
calendaring motion.                                                            
                                                                               
SENATOR LEMAN moved and asked unanimous consent SB 236 be approved             
for calendaring at the discretion of the Chair.  Hearing no                    
objection, it was so ordered.

CHAIRMAN KELLY brought SB 304 before the committee as the next                 
order of business.  He directed attention to one section of the                
bill that prohibits driving in the left lane of a divided highway              
unless in the process of passing another vehicle.  He said the                 
section was troublesome to him, and after brief discussion, it was             
agreed by committee members to hold the bill for further review and            
possible amendment.

CHAIRMAN KELLY brought CSHB 199(JUD) before the committee as the               
next order of business.                                                        
                                                                               
SENATOR LEMAN moved and asked unanimous consent CSHB 199(JUD) be               
approved for calendaring at the discretion of the Chair.  Hearing              
no objection, it was so ordered.

CHAIRMAN KELLY brought CSHB 53(RLS)(title am) before the committee             
as the final order of business.                                                
                                                                               
SENATOR LEMAN moved and asked unanimous consent CSHB 53(RLS)(title             
am) be approved for calendaring at the discretion of the Chair.                
SENATOR TORGERSON objected.  The roll was taken with the following             
result:  Senators Taylor, Leman and Kelly voted "Yea" and Senator              
Torgerson voted "Nay."  CHAIRMAN KELLY stated the calendaring                  
motion carried.                                                                
                                                                               
There being no further business to come before the committee, the              
meeting adjourned at 4:10 p.m.
