     SCS/LM - Retain original provisions; allow landspreading of septic tank sewage at approved sites; exempt from the Act any county that has adopted the state building code; require that a final notice of release be issued upon approval of a on-site sewage disposal plan rather than issuance of a permit.

     SFA (2, T. Buford) - Amend KRS 211.350 to require a property owner to obtain a release to allow temporary electrical power for construction before a certified electrical inspector shall issue the certificates of approval of temporary or permanent electrical wiring; provide that the release shall be granted during business hours, upon demand, when the property owner or owner's agent applies for a site evaluation at the local health department.
     HFA (1, W. Allen) - Apply provisions of the Act only to mobile homes instead of to dwellings, manufactured housing, buildings, or other structures; delete provision for notice of release for temporary electrical power.
     HFA (2, R. Wilkey) - WITHDRAWN.
     HFA (3, W. Allen) - Delete provision requiring certificate of approval for temporary electrical wiring; delete provision requiring notice of release from the local health department for temporary electrical power.

     HFA (5, K. Bratcher) - Add a new section of KRS Chapter 76.005 to 76.210 to allow a person a period of 10 years to tap-on to a new sewer extension in a metropolitan sewer district if the person has made arrangements for the installation of, or has installed, an on-site sewage disposal system and operates the system lawfully; stipulate that if a person fails to maintain the system lawfully or does not install one, the metropolitan sewer district may require immediate tap on.
     HFA (6, R. Wilkey) - WITHDRAWN
     HFA (7, R. Wilkey) - WITHDRAWN.
