Your Committee has amended this measure by:

(2) Changing its effective date to July 1, 3000; and

As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Intrastate Commerce that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 385, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 385, S.D. 1, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce.
