         committee substitute; the chair recognized Senator Wentworth to  
         explain the difference between the committee substitute and the  
         bill as filed.  Senator Wentworth moved adoption of the  
         committee substitute; without objection, it was so ordered.

         145 be reported back to the Senate with the recommendation that  
         it do pass and be printed.  The motion failed by a record vote  
         of 3 ayes, 2 nays, 0 present not voting, and 2 absent.   
         There was no action taken for the following bills:  SB 165 and  
         SB 349.

         Jr. moved that the Committee stand recessed subject to the call  
         of the chair.  Without objection, it was so ordered.
