 SENATOR TAYLOR asks Mr. McMullen of the Department of                         
 Administration to make a statement.

 MIKE MCMULLEN, Division of Personnel, Department of Administration            
 (DOA), states the department supports SB 242, but would prefer to             
 see the provisions in SB 242 implemented by regulation, not by law.           
 DOA is concerned there would be expectations from the public that             
 there would be increased services provided by the state, under SB             
 242.
