         SB  53-REVOKE DRIVER'S LIC. FOR FATAL ACCIDENT                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  SEEKINS  announced  SB  53,   version  A,  to  be  up  for                                                               
consideration.                                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR FRENCH asked Senator Ogan,  sponsor, whether he wanted to                                                               
add "serious physical  injury" since that is  frequently a result                                                               
of an  automobile accident of  the sort this bill  envisions. The                                                               
drawback is  that the bill  would be less clear-cut,  because you                                                               
could argue about how serious  a physical injury really is versus                                                               
someone suffering a fatality.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  OGAN responded  that he  had seriously  considered that,                                                               
but since this  bill has taken eight years so  far, he would like                                                               
to work on that as a separate issue.                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  OGAN moved  to pass  SB 53,  version \A,  from committee                                                               
with individual recommendations. There were  no objections and it                                                               
was so ordered.
