   requiring the Advisory Board to prepare and recommend  to  the  Agency      
   rules  implementing  the  ethanol  fuel research program.  Extends the      
   time during which  a  person  may  apply  for  certain  rebates  until      
   calendar  year  2002.    Deletes provisions concerning application for

   the  International Registration Plan are exempt from paying user fees.

        Provides for the Ethanol Fuel Research Program to be administered      
   by the Department of Commerce and Community Affairs  rather  than  the

        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 2.

          FISCAL NOTE (Secretary of State)                                     
          SB 1840 can be accommodated within SOS proposed FY'99 budget         
          and by the additional funds authorized in the bill to offset

          The bill fails to preempt home rule authority.
