Representative  Wilson  OBJECTED.   She  recalled  that  the                                                                    
discussion the previous  day had lasted close  to two hours.

the tax.  She thought the bill  needed the most work  of all

experienced major changes recently.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
A roll call vote was taken on the motion.
