04 * Section 1. AS 47.55 is amended by adding a new section to read:
05 Sec. 47.55.032. ADMISSION FROM WAITING LISTS. (a) The Department
06 of Administration shall adopt regulations under which the name of a person who is
07 found eligible for admission to the Pioneers' Home, but for whom no space exists at
08 the time eligibility is determined at a site designated by the person in the person's
09 application for admission, shall be placed on a waiting list for admission to one of the
10 designated sites when space permits.
11 (b) A person whose name is on a waiting list established under (a) of this
12 section may refuse admission to a designated site where space becomes available.
13 Except as provided in (c) of this section, upon a person's refusal to accept admission
14 to a site that was designated by the person in the person's application for admission,
01 the person's name shall be placed on the waiting list for that site at a point where 25
02 percent of the names on the waiting list are above the person's name. If the number
03 of names on a waiting list is not divisible by four, the name of a person refusing
04 admission shall be placed on the list at a point that is as close to the 25th percentile
05 as possible.
06 (c) Notwithstanding (b) of this section, the third time, and any subsequent time
07 after the third time, that a person refuses admission to a site designated by the person
08 in the person's application for admission, the person's name shall be placed at the
09 bottom of the waiting list for that site.
10 (d) Refusal to accept admittance to one site of the Pioneers' Home does not
11 affect the placement of a person's name on the waiting list for another site.
12 * Sec. 2. APPLICABILITY. This Act applies to offers of admission to the Pioneers' Home
13 that are made by the Department of Administration on or after the effective date of this Act
14 to persons whose names are on waiting lists that were established before or after the effective
15 date of this Act.
