Page 287, strike lines 29 through 31 and insert:  
"e. To increase the penalties for wounding or bodily injury caused by strangulation--$50,000."

(This amendment alters language contained in House Bill 30 regarding the Woodrum impact associated with the imposition of a new criminal penalties for strangulation. As described in House Bill 30, the penalty for strangulation was tied to the assault and battery of a family or household member if the assault and battery involved strangulation. The Courts of Justice Committee adopted a substitute prohibiting strangulation of any person. Consequently, the language contained in House Bill 30 must be modified to reflect House Bill 752 as it was actually adopted.)
