10:48 AM -- House Sponsors for Sunset Bills

Representative Curry asked for House sponsors for sunset bills currently in the Senate. Committee members asked for summaries of the laws.

10:49 AM

Danny Tomlinson, representing the Department of Agriculture, briefly explained the sunset process. He added that the Senate held a Sunset Hearing on January 8, 2009, at 2:00 PM. Representative Curry listed all of the bills in need of a House sponsor. Mr. Tomlinson answered questions from the committee about the sunset bills. Committee members volunteered to sponsor the following sunset bills (not all bills have been assigned numbers at this time).

Representative Looper asked whether amendments that were offered in the Senate all passed. Mr. Tomlinson answered that some of the amendments suggested by the Senate Committee will be incorporated into the bills before they are introduced later in January, but that some of the amendments that were longer would be offered as committee amendments.

10:56 AM

The committee adjourned.
