 HB 538 - VESSEL MORATORIUM FOR HAIR CRAB FISHERY                            
 Number 1195                                                                   
 CHAIRMAN AUSTERMAN indicated there were no new amendments before              
 the committee and noted that HB 538 would go to the House Rules               
 Committee next.  He asked if there was further discussion on the              
 bill, which had been heard previously.                                        
 REPRESENTATIVE ELTON moved that HB 538, as amended, move from                 
 committee with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note.           
 REPRESENTATIVE DAVIS objected for the purpose of discussion.  He              
 asked if Chairman Austerman wanted to hear more testimony if any              
 were available.                                                               
 CHAIRMAN AUSTERMAN answered that no more testimony was planned.               
 "We didn't move it last time because it had only this committee as            
 a referral and we wanted everybody to sleep on it a little bit and            
 bring it back," he said.  He noted that the motion was to move CSHB           
 538, as amended, with accompanying fiscal notes and individual                
 Number 1362                                                                   
 REPRESENTATIVE ELTON referred to the zero fiscal note and asked,              
 "Even though it's a zero fiscal note, does this pick up a Finance             
 Committee referral?"                                                          
 CHAIRMAN AUSTERMAN responded, "Not unless we request it."  He added           
 that it went to the House Rules Committee next.                               
 REPRESENTATIVE DAVIS withdrew his objection.                                  
 CHAIRMAN AUSTERMAN asked if there were any other objections to                
 moving the bill.  There being no objection, CSHB 538 moved out of
