       Bill No. CS for SB 578

                    Senate             .             House              
                  Comm: RCS            .                                
                  01/19/2016           .

       (Latvala) recommended the following:
    1         Senate Amendment 
    3         Delete lines 30 - 39

   12  status and business plan, thereby putting the promoter at a
   13  competitive disadvantage. The Legislature also finds that the

   22  Legislature declares that
