         HB 359 APPOINTMENT PROCESS FOR BDS & COMM'NS                        
 CHAIRMAN SHARP brought up HB 359 as the next order of business                
 before the Senate State Affairs Committee.                                    
 Number 540                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE BRIAN PORTER, prime sponsor of HB 359, stated the              
 bill was crafted in conjunction with the Governor's Office, so                
 their needs have been met.  The bill would provide a way to avoid             
 the problem that occurred two years ago with an appointment to APUC           
 by a departing governor.  This bill is not intended to give an                
 advantage or disadvantage to any particular governor, it will just            
 set the standard for appointments in the future.                              
 SENATOR DONLEY made a motion to discharge HB 359 from the Senate              
 State Affairs Committee with individual recommendations.                      
 CHAIRMAN SHARP, hearing no objection, stated HB 359 was discharged            
 from the Senate State Affairs Committee.
