extension date of the Alcoholic Beverage Board from 2002 to 1999,

Legislature next year for its normal extension process.  This

were unable to fully address this particular year.

SENATOR LEMAN moved SCS CSHB 458(RLS) be approved for calendaring              
at the discretion of the Chair.  Hearing no objection, it was so               
ordered.
