SB 165                                                                       
Governor's transmittal letter dated June 1:                                    
Dear President Halford:                                                        
On this date I have signed, with line item vetoes (and reductions),            
the following bill and am transmitting the engrossed and enrolled              
copies to the Lieutenant Governor's Office for permanent filing:               
	CONFERENCE CS FOR SENATE BILL NO. 165                                         
"An Act making an appropriation to the Alyeska                                
Settlement Fund and making appropriations from the                             
Alyeska Settlement Fund; making, amending, and                                 
repealing operating and capital appropriations; and                            
providing for an effective date."                                              
			Chapter 41, SLA 1993                                                        
			Effective Date:  See Chapter                                                
I approved funding for nearly all of the appropriations in this                
legislation.  The fiscal year 1993 supplemental appropriations are less        
than $40 million, an amount far less than the levels required in               
recent years.  I commend the departments and Legislature for                   
keeping current year expenditures in check.

SB 165                                                                       
The three vetoes I have made are:                                              
	Section 56.  This section repealed a 1992 appropriation of                  
	federal funding for  the upgrade of Fireweed Lane in                          
	Anchorage.  The project has been designed and construction                    
	is set for this fall.  Should the project have been halted now,               
	it would have required the repayment of $400,000 to the                       
	federal government.  The project has the support of the                       
	Municipality of Anchorage and accordingly, I have vetoed                      
	the repeal of the project's funding;                                          
	Section  68:  Funding from two of this section's prior year                 
	appropriations is unavailable.  As a result, only $136,000 is                 
	available.  Accordingly, I have vetoed the $50,000 to the                     
	Alaska Energy Authority for the Snettisham Acquisition.                       
	This action will enable all of the available funding to go to                 
	construction of the Gambell school water line.  Other                         
	funding for the Snettisham acquisition is provided in section                 
	150; and                                                                      
	Section 147:  This section duplicates the reappropriation in                
	section 31.
