 SB 316 - HEALTH INSURANCE NOMENCLATURE                                      
 Number 884                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN KOTT said the committee would hear SB 316(title am), "An             
 Act changing the term `disability' to `health' in the context of              
 insurance coverage."  He noted the committee has heard the                    
 companion bill which is currently in the House Rules Committee.               
 Chairman Kott said the word "disability" was removed and the word             
 "health" was inserted.  There was some confusion indicated by the             
 providers.  In order to alleviate some of that confusion the                  
 wording was changed.  He noted there is disability within the                 
 health insurance arena, but it doesn't stand alone.                           
 Number 946                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE ROKEBERG made a motion to move SB 316(title am),               
 with individual recommendations and the attached zero fiscal note.            
 CHAIRMAN KOTT asked if there was an objection.  Hearing none, SB
 316(title am) was moved out of the House Labor and Commerce
