HOUSE BILL NO. 100 by the House Rules Committee by request of                  
the Governor, entitled:                                                        
"An Act making appropriations for the operating and loan program

appropriations under art. IX, sec. 17(c), Constitution of the State

The Governor's transmittal letter, dated January 19, 1995 appears              
"Dear Speaker Phillips:                                                        
Under the authority of art. III, sec. 18, of the Alaska Constitution, I am     
transmitting legislation making appropriations for operating and loan          
program expenses for fiscal year 1996.  AS 37.07.020 requires the              
Governor to submit an appropriation bill to authorize proposed                 
expenditures to the Legislature before the fourth legislative day.  I am       
separately transmitting two appropriation bills: the attached bill for         
"general government operations" and another for "formula-funded                
The general government operations bill reflects the budget turned over         
to me by my predecessor on December 5 and which I presented to you             
on December 15, 1994.  The only number change is the actual request            
of the Alaska Court System as submitted to my office after the                 
December 5 budget was prepared.                                                
We continue to review the previous administrations budget and to               
analyze its effect upon the services the state provides.  In February, I       
will transmit my amendments to reflect the budgetary priorities of my
