I just wanted to ask the representive Daughtry to know how well we trained today I think I have got to be in your committee, I will talk to you later senator Heydes I may just answer his question, just making sure on this between Johson Cane and Clay I believe it is, they distribute sales hat volume rate or based on tor is that based on population? I don't know. My point I'm trying to get is is there a major change in the tax revenue received by the town for annexing this. They can't tax this. It's not taxable. It belongs state. It's not taxable. They've worked together. All they've done is instead of having to settle an annexed property, the university has agreed to let them take they can't tax it, they can't do anything to it, can even begin sold it, they can't do anything   I thought you'd violate this. Okay I have a motion motion from Sen. Bill Cook for a favorable report on House Bill 218. Additional questions? Seeing none all in favor please say aye. Aye. Opposed nay. The ayes have it. Rep. Daughtry, who will present this on the Senate floor?

Now that community, it's about 87 residents or so, they want to be in the town of Carrie. They don't quite fit within voluntary annexation with voluntary annexation, and this is a legislative annexation. This would help them with their water, which they really right now and also with all their other services, I know of no other opposition in the community to this. I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. I would appreciate your support. Senator Burger, any additional comments? Thank you, mr.chair.yes.in this particular situation town of Carrie is willing to invest over $4 million in this neighborhood to bring it up to standard.

Alright senator Davis you will be explaining senate bill 50 Wilson county occupancy tax modification. Thank you Mr Chairman, members of the committee I will start just simply [xx] today, this is Senator Brian's bill however she has an excuse absence for today also share that the delegation is actually in full support Senator Newton he's tied up however, he's conveyed that he doesn't really like these bills, however, he wanted to be clear that he doesn't oppose this as is currently drafted. So with that being said, over in Green County and this is a local bill that would impact my neighboring county of Wilson down East in a simply local occupancy tax will take them up to the 6% capacity so they could engage in. Senator Davis, I've got a motion in favor of the report from Senator Tillman, alright, I'll hold that motion. Senator Telmen, question. Just quick into this, is this tax the proceeds this tax spent in the same way they all are that require 50% of the tax raised to be spent on  advertising and tourism. We haven't broken from that motion in this bill. It's still would be

consistent with that, the only shift is there is a third that would go towards the tourism, to county tourism, 2/3 the city and upon the city getting agreements from the tourism than those funds can be released, it's consistent with that general guideline. Senator Hise you OK? Alright any additional questions or comments? Let's see, who is that motion from? Who raised that motion Senator Tillman, I'm sorry. It was a final [xx] OK, alright.

Ladies and gentleman of the committee what this bill does is [xx] views we had to that one [xx] because equalized [xx] this brings that on an energy basis. Bill I can't hear you. It brings on an energy basis rather than per gallon basis because as you know different gases and different things produce energy in different amounts just as we have done with liquid natural gas, and with gasoline we're now doing with propane and gasoline.
