  CS FOR HOUSE BILL NO. 454(FIN)                                               
                                                                               
       An  Act  making  a supplemental  appropriation  to  the                 
       Department of Law  to pay  costs of certain  continuing                 
       legal proceedings; and providing for an effective date.                 
                                                                               
  Upon reconvening  the  meeting, Co-chair  Frank  asked  that                 
  representatives from the Dept. of Law come forward and speak                 
  to the department's supplemental request.  ATTORNEY  GENERAL                 
  BRUCE BOTELHO; JIM BALDWIN,  Assistant Attorney General; and                 
                                                                               
                                                                               
  DICK PEGUES, Director, Division  of Administrative Services,                 
  Dept. of Law,  came before committee.   Co-chair Frank noted                 
  ongoing  litigation,  advised  that the  supplemental  seeks                 
  funding  for  litigation costs,  and  asked if  an executive                 
  session would be  appropriate for  discussion of the  issue.                 
  The  Attorney  General concurred  in  need for  an executive                 
  session  since  confidential taxpayer  information  would be                 
  part of  the discussion.   Senator Kerttula  MOVED that  the                 
  committee meet in EXECUTIVE SESSION for consideration of the                 
  Dept. of Law supplemental.  No objection having been raised,                 
  IT WAS SO ORDERED.                                                           
                                                                               
           EXECUTIVE SESSION - 12:12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.                         
                                                                               
  [Only  committee members  and staff  from the  Dept. of  Law                 
  remained in the committee room during the executive session.                 
  No recording  was made nor  were minutes  taken during  that                 
  time.]                                                                       
                                                                               
  Upon reconvening the  meeting at  1:30 p.m., Co-chair  Frank                 
  queried  members  regarding  action on  the  bill.   Senator                 
  Kerttula MOVED for passage of CSHB  454 (Fin).  No objection                 
  having  been raised,  CSHB  454 (Fin)  was  REPORTED OUT  of                 
  committee  with a  "do pass"  recommendation from  Co-chairs                 
  Pearce and Frank, and  Senators Kerttula and Sharp.   (Other                 
  members had left the meeting and did not sign the report.)                   
                                                                               
  ADJOURNMENT                                                                  
                                                                               
  The meeting was adjourned at approximately 1:35 p.m.
