CHAIRMAN KELLY brought SB 319 - ARBITRATION back before the                    
committee.  Addressing a proposed Rules CS, he explained Senator               
Donley's amendment had been added to the bill, and in terms of                 
labor contracts, it just maintains the status quo.  He stated he               
would entertain a motion to adopt the Rules CS.

objection, it was so ordered.                                                  
                                                                               
SENATOR LEMAN moved and asked unanimous consent CSSB 319(RLS) be               
approved for calendaring at the discretion of the Chair.  Hearing              
no objection, it was so ordered.                                               
                                                                               
There being no further business to come before the committee, the              
meeting adjourned at 11:42 a.m.
