         The Chair called the meeting to order at 11:50 pm.  There  
         being a quorum present, the following business was transacted.   
         The Chair stated that with the large number of bills on the  
         list recommended for the Local and Uncontested Calendar that  
         the need for this meeting was evident.  His intention was to  
         take up the first list of approximately 175 bills.  The bills  
         not certified for the local calendar would then still have a  
         chance to go on the intent for tomorrow.

         on any of the bills listed for certification on the Local and  
         Uncontested Calendar.  There was discussion and many  
         questions.  Senators Harris, Truan, Brown, Moncrief, and  
         Sibley moved to certify all the bills on the list with the  
         exception of HB 115, HB 623, HB 727, HB 793, HB 803, HB 846,
