  HB 179 - MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTRATION, FEES, ETC.                              
                                                                               
  REP. PORTER asked the reason for the increase of three staff                 
  members reflected in the fiscal note.  Rep. Porter further                   
  asked if the Division of Motor Vehicles planned any public                   
  information blitz to inform the public on this new fee                       
  structure.                                                                   
                                                                               
  Number 030                                                                   
                                                                               
  JUANITA HENSLEY, CHIEF, DRIVER SERVICES, DIVISION OF MOTOR                   
  VEHICLES, DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY, replied that the                      
  division expects there to be many complaints from the public                 
  necessitating the increase in staff.  Ms. Hensley further                    
  noted that the division would be revising the registration                   
  forms, including to identify this fee as a municipal tax as                  
  opposed to a state tax.                                                      
                                                                               
  Number 030                                                                   
                                                                               
  REP. MULDER asked for clarification regarding whether or not                 
  registration fees would be increasing.                                       
                                                                               
  MS. HENSLEY replied that there would be a increase in                        
  registration fees only in those areas that have a municipal                  
  registration tax.                                                            
                                                                               
  Number 055                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN HUDSON asked if Rep. Mulder was satisfied with                      
  section 6 of the bill dealing with mobile homes.                             
                                                                               
  REP. MULDER replied that he was.                                             
                                                                               
  REP. PORTER moved for passage of CSHB 179(L&C) with fiscal                   
  notes and individual recommendations.  No objections were                    
  heard, it was so ordered.
