"An Act authorizing a sentencing court to impose a sentence                   
of a day fine instead of a sentence of imprisonment on a                       
defendant convicted of a misdemeanor; directing the Alaska                     
Supreme Court to develop and implement a day fine plan;                        
requiring the Alaska Court System to report to the legislature                 
on the use of day fines; amending Alaska Rule of Criminal                      
Procedure 32; and providing for an effective date."                            
"In order to facilitate passage of HB 119 in a timely manner, it is my         
intent to withdraw my name as the bill's sponsor.  HB 119 is a bill            
which will authorize the Court System to implement day fines as a              
sentencing option.                                                             
Representative Richard Foster will become the prime sponsor of HB
Thank you."                                                                    
The Chief Clerk was instructed to so notify the Senate.  CSHB
