REPRESENTATIVE GRUENBERG  reminded the committee that  because the

vote of each house would be required.                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
MR. WRIGHT confirmed that was the case.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE GRUENBERG  commented that it is not  often that the                                                              
legislature  has  the   opportunity  to  look  at  Rule   20  -  a                                                              
fundamentally    important    uniform   rule    prescribing    the                                                              
jurisdiction  of  each  standing  committee  -  and  the  proposed                                                              
legislation will  give the legislature that opportunity.   He went                                                              
on to ask  Mr. Wright if he  was aware of any changes  that should                                                              
be made to Rule 20 on the jurisdiction of any committee.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
MR. WRIGHT  responded that he  was not.   He asserted that  he and
