  SENATOR LEMAN brought  SB 5  (MEDICAID FOR CERTAIN  DISABLED                 
  CHILDREN)  before  the  committee  as   the  next  order  of                 
  business.                                                                    
                                                                               
  Number 183                                                                   
                                                                               
                                                                               
  SENATOR ELLIS said  the legislation  is the Medicaid  option                 
  bill that is sort of a safety net or backup to families that                 
  won't  be  served  through   Project  Choice  with  Medicaid                 
  waivers.                                                                     
                                                                               
  JOE WINDERS, father of a  severely handicapped child, stated                 
  his  strong support for  passage of SB  5.   He stressed the                 
  need for the assistance the bill would provide to his family                 
  because of the high  costs incurred in taking care  of their                 
  handicapped   child  at   home   rather   than  having   him                 
  insitutionalized.                                                            
                                                                               
  Number 200                                                                   
                                                                               
  SENATOR TAYLOR moved  that SB 5  be passed out of  committee                 
  with  individual recommendations.   Hearing no objection, it                 
  was so ordered.
