 SB 52 - ADVISORY VOTE ON CAPITAL PUNISHMENT                                  
 HB 481 - CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR CHILD MURDER                                 
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN PORTER noted that the committee had heard the two bills              
 concerning the death penalty on Monday, April 15, 1996.  The public           
 hearing related to this legislation was completed.  Chairman Porter           
 said the fiscal notes on both bills were wanting.  Neither bill has           
 a fiscal note from the Office of the Public Defender or the Office            
 of Public Advocacy.  The fiscal notes on the advisory vote                    
 legislation only address the cost of the election.  He thought it             
 was the wish of the committee to get a better feel for what the               
 implication would be of the cost to implement the death penalty if            
 the advisory vote was successful.                                             
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN PORTER stated that for this reason he had notified Senator           
 Taylor's office and Representative Masek's office and asked them to           
 comply with this request to get complete fiscal notes into the                
 Judiciary Committee before they proceed further.  He said they                
 would bring both these bills up again once this information is                
 received.
