       HB 152 REGULATION OF HOSPICE CARE                                       
                                                                               
       There was discussion on the bill.  SENATOR DONLEY MOVED                 
       for  adoption of  the SCS,  version P.   SENATOR  ADAMS                 
       objected,  then  withdrew  his  objection, and  SCSCSHB
       152(FIN) was ADOPTED.   SENATOR PARNELL MOVED  the bill                 
       from   committee   with   individual   recommendations.                 
       Without objection,  SCSCSHB 152(FIN)  was REPORTED  OUT                 
       with  a  previous fiscal  note  from the  Department of                 
       Health and Social Services (7.5).                                       
                                                                               
  CS FOR HOUSE BILL NO. 152(HES)                                               
  "An Act regulating hospice care."                                            
                                                                               
  COCHAIR SHARP pointed out that the bill was comparable to SB
  96  which  also  had been  heard  and  reported  out by  the                 
  committee.   There was  a slight change in  the title of the                 
  house bill, that being "regulating hospice care" as compared                 
  to  "relating to hospice care" in the senate bill.  He asked                 
  the committee's pleasure regarding the title.  COCHAIR SHARP                 
  noted  there was  a  proposed SCS  before the  committee for                 
  consideration that would conform the  house bill verbatim to                 
  the  senate  bill and  that the  SCS  would require  a title                 
  change resolution.                                                           
                                                                               
  SENATOR DONLEY was  supportive of the legislation  and MOVED                 
  for adoption of the SCS, version P.  SENATOR ADAMS objected,                 
  then  withdrew  his  objection,  and  SCSCSHB  152(FIN)  was                 
  ADOPTED.                                                                     
                                                                               
  SENATOR  PARNELL   MOVED  the   bill  from   committee  with                 
                                                                               
                                                                               
  individual  recommendations.    Without  objection,  SCSCSHB
  152(FIN) was REPORTED  OUT with a previous  fiscal note from                 
  the Department of Health and Social Services (7.5).
