State  Legislature, on  behalf  of  Representative Hughes,  prime                                                               
sponsor of  HCR 17, reviewed  that [on 2/4/16] the  committee had                                                               
adopted two amendments [to the original  version of HCR 17].  She                                                               
explained  that  the  first  amendment   had  replaced  the  word

reference  for the  economic  data within  the  resolution.   The                                                               
second amendment had  provided a list specifying  where copies of                                                               
the  resolution would  be sent.   She  explained that  the latter                                                               
amendment had caused a drafting  issue with Legislative Legal and                                                               
Research  Services:   It would  have  changed the  status of  the                                                               
resolution from  concurrent to joint,  because people  outside of                                                               
state  government  were  identified   to  receive  copies.    She                                                               
explained that  the Unmanned  Aircraft Systems  (UAS) Legislative                                                               
Task Force could  distribute copies to any  individuals that they                                                               
deemed   appropriate.     In   response   to   a  question   from                                                               
Representative Claman, she clarified  that the appropriate action                                                               
would be to  rescind the previous committee  action [moving CSHCR
17(TRA) out  of committee], and  adopting the  proposed committee

1:10:28 PM
