REPORT OF CONFERENCE COMMITTEE
The Conference Committee respectfully reports that it has considered SB 125 and the amendments thereto made by the House, and the disagreement of the two houses thereon, and recommends that SB 125 be amended as follows:
On page 1, line 12, of the House engrossed bill, before "Operations" insert "Government".
On page 1, after line 13 of the House engrossed bill, insert:
"Section 2. That chapter 2-6 be amended by adding a NEW SECTION to read:
Before a subpoena may be issued by the Government Operations and Audit Committee, the committee shall determine that:
(1) A legislative purpose exists pursuant to §§ 2-6-2 and 2-6-4;
(2) The subpoenaed person or documents are relevant and material to accomplish the legislative purpose; and
(3) The information sought is not otherwise practically available.
It is not a legislative purpose to subpoena a person or documents to collect information that may be used for a criminal proceeding or to legislatively determine guilt or inflict punishment upon an identifiable person.".
