Senator Ginal reconvened the meeting.
02:57:15 PM  
Senator Ginal announce that since there was no one signed
up for public testimony on House Bill 19-1011 and Senator Tate, bill sponsor,
was occupied in another committee, the bill was on the table for action.

House Bill 19-1011 changes
statutory language to conform with existing practice at the Department
of Revenue.   Current law references a definition of manufactured
housing that no longer exists.  In its place is a definition for modular
homes.  This bill changes the definition to that of a "manufactured
home," which includes both modular and manufactured homes.  Mentions
of the word "vehicle" are also removed to conform with accompanying
statutory references that expressly state a manufactured home cannot have
motive power.



02:58:45 PM
Motion Refer House Bill 19-1011 to the Committee of the Whole.
