  Co-Chair Larson pointed out that the House Finance Committee                 
  version of HB 363 had been withdrawn.                                        
                                                                               
  JACK  PHELPS, STAFF,  REPRESENTATIVE  PETER  KOTT, spoke  in                 
  support of the House State  Affairs version of the  proposed                 
  legislation.  He  stated that  the bill would  propose a  $5                 
  dollar  increase and  then would  provide a $5  discount for                 
  those who  mail in their  registration.  Mr.  Phelps pointed                 
  out that this  legislation represents the first  increase to                 
                                                                               
                                5                                              
                                                                               
                                                                               
  motor vehicle fees since 1978.                                               
                                                                               
  Representative  Martin  recommended  adding  the  electronic                 
  means of performing business.  Representative Brown  pointed                 
  out  that the  Division  of Motor  Vehicles  is looking  for                 
  greater  system  efficiency through  electronic  mail.   Mr.                 
  Phelps agreed that legislation could support the concept.                    
                                                                               
  Representative Brown MOVED  adding language to Page  1, Line                 
  10,  after   the  word   "mail"  inserting   "or  electronic                 
  transmission".   Representative  Grussendorf  asked  if  the                 
  Department currently has the  essential equipment to provide                 
  the recommended service.  Representative Martin replied that                 
  the  Department  is  capable  of   handling  the  electronic                 
  systems, although to date they have not had the authority to                 
  provide it.                                                                  
                                                                               
  Following  discussion,   Co-Chair  Larson  MOVED   TO  AMEND                 
  Amendment 1, following the word "mail" inserting "and may be                 
  reduced by $5  when registration is conducted  by electronic                 
  transmission".    Representative  Navarre  OBJECTED  to  the                 
  motion to amend Amendment #1.                                                
                                                                               
  (Tape Change, HFC 94-62, Side 1).                                            
                                                                               
  Representative Navarre  WITHDREW THE  OBJECTION to  amending                 
  Amendment #1.                                                                
                                                                               
  There being NO  OBJECTIONS to the main  amendment, Amendment                 
                                                                               
  Representative  Navarre pointed  out  that the  fiscal  note                 
  would not generate the amount of revenue indicated.
