Resuscitation (CPR)  training.   She explained the  bill history,                                                               
and noted  that the  committee substitute  currently in  front of                                                               
the committee  had established that  the position  be facilitated                                                               
by the Department  of Public Safety (DPS) instead  of its current

(DMVA).   She directed attention  to the not yet  received fiscal                                                               
note  from  DPS, and  questioned  the  funding source  to  either

position  of neutrality  for either  version  of the  bill.   She                                                               
offered  her belief  that  it was  "a natural  fit  that the  911                                                               
coordinator should be housed in  the DPS," but she questioned the

return to the original HB 361, 26-LS1478\A.                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
CO-CHAIR  KELLER agreed  to return  to the  original HB  361, 26-                                                               
LS1478\A, as  the proposed committee substitute  had moved beyond

dispatcher  position  should remain  in  DMVA.   She  voiced  her
