  SB 122:  EMPLOYER'S LIABILITY FOR REFERENCE INFO                             
                                                                               
  Number 099                                                                   
                                                                               
  GAYLE HORETSKI, COMMITTEE COUNSEL, HOUSE JUDICIARY                           
  COMMITTEE, called the members' attention to a draft                          
  committee substitute for SB 122, dated April 9, 1993.  She                   
  mentioned that a companion bill, HB 147, which the House                     
  Judiciary Committee had passed out earlier, was currently in                 
  the House Rules Committee.  She stated that the draft                        
  committee substitute for SB 122 included language at the                     
  bottom of page 1 and the top of page 2 which had been lifted                 
  from the House Judiciary Committee's substitute for HB 147.                  
                                                                               
  MS. HORETSKI said that the draft committee substitute had                    
  two additional differences from the House Judiciary                          
  Committee's version of HB 147.  She added that those two                     
  differences were part of the bill which the Senate had                       
  passed.  The first change appeared on page 1, line 11, where                 
  the phrase "employer or" was added, in order to clarify that                 
  the bill applied to both present and former employers who                    
  gave out references.  The other change appeared on page 2,                   
  line 2, and added the word "comparable," to clarify that the                 
  bill referred to federal civil rights laws, not all federal                  
  laws.                                                                        
                                                                               
  Number 165                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE PHILLIPS asked if Senator Bert Sharp, sponsor                 
  of SB 122, concurred with the changes starting at the bottom                 
  of page 1 of the draft committee substitute.                                 
                                                                               
  RUTH SKIDMORE, LEGISLATIVE AIDE TO SENATOR SHARP PRIME                       
  SPONSOR of SB 122, indicated that the sponsor did not oppose                 
  the amendment.                                                               
                                                                               
  Number 181                                                                   
                                                                               
  MS. HORETSKI mentioned that former-Representative Max                        
  Gruenberg had expressed concerns about the use of the word                   
  "recklessly" in SB 122, and would be available by telephone                  
  to testify if the committee wished to hear from him.                         
                                                                               
  Number 190                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE PHILLIPS commented that the committee had                     
  given the bill ample consideration and that she, therefore,                  
  saw no reason to reopen the discussion on its language.                      
                                                                               
  Number 236                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE PHILLIPS asked Ms. Skidmore to clarify for                    
  the committee that SB 122's sponsor supported the draft                      
  committee substitute.                                                        
                                                                               
  MS. SKIDMORE stated that Senator Sharp supported the draft                   
  committee substitute.                                                        
                                                                               
  Number 238                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE PHILLIPS made a MOTION to MOVE HCSSB (122)                    
  (JUD) out of committee, with individual recommendations and                  
  a zero fiscal note.  There being no objection, IT WAS SO                     
  ORDERED.                                                                     
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN PORTER announced that the committee would take up                   
  HB 222, next.
