On page 1, beginning on line 16, after "determined" strike "beyond a reasonable doubt" and insert "by a preponderance of the evidence"

EFFECT:   Changes the burden of proof of the party asserting the affirmative defense from "beyond a reasonable doubt" to "by a preponderance of the evidence." This modification would maintain the current legal standard.
