Juneau, Alaska                     Wednesday         February 22, 1995         
                                                                               
                                                                               
                              Thirty-eighth Day                              
                                                                               
                                                                               
Pursuant to adjournment, the House was called to order by Speaker              
Phillips at 10:09 a.m.                                                         
                                                                               
                                                                               
Roll call showed 38 members present.  Representative Moses had been            
previously excused from a call of the House today.  Representative             
B.Davis was excused due to illness.                                            
                                                                               
                                                                               
The invocation was offered by the Chaplain, Pastor David Horn of the           
Faith Lutheran Church.  Representative Green moved and asked                   
unanimous consent that the invocation be spread on the journal.  There         
being no objection, it appears below:                                          
                                                                               
"`For Lawmaking Bodies' (from the Lutheran Book of                            
Prayer):                                                                       
                                                                               
Heavenly Father, as a citizen of our Commonwealth, I                          
intercede with You for our representatives in Government.                      
You have established in our midst law-making powers                            
dedicated to the upholding of order and liberty.  I beseech                    
You, bless and preserve our form of government in State and                    
nation.  Grant that our legislators may ever be mindful of the                 
welfare of all their constituents.  Grant that they be guided to               
serve unselfishly the common good of the people.  Preserve                     
them from all double-dealing, pettiness, and self-seeking.                     
Protect, I beseech You, those liberties of rule by representation              
which are the cornerstone of our Government.

Teach us Christians the grace to use our freedom to proclaim                  
Your Word and use each and every opportunity to serve our                      
fellow men.  May we give proof of our gratitude in seeking                     
the welfare of our State, on using our privileges of ballot and                
freedom of press and speech for the improvement of our own                     
community and our entire nation.  These blessings grant us,                    
dear Lord, for Jesus' sake.  Amen."                                            
                                                                               
                                                                               
The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Representative James.                      
                                                                               
                                                                               
                         CERTIFICATION OF THE JOURNAL                        
                                                                               
Representative Vezey moved and asked unanimous consent that the                
journal for the 36th and 37th legislative days and Senate & House              
Joint Journal Supplement No. 8 be approved as certified by the Chief           
Clerk.  There being no objection, it was so ordered.                           
                                                                               
                                                                               
                          MESSAGES FROM THE GOVERNOR                         
                                                                               
                                                                               
The following Governor's letter, dated February 20, 1995, was read:            
                                                                               
"Dear President Phillips:                                                      
                                                                               
In the spirit of change which our constituents demanded in last fall's         
election, let's be bold enough to do away with business as usual.  With        
this letter, I invite you to join with me in moving forward in a               
cooperative manner on confirmations.                                           
                                                                               
The Legislature's action regarding appointments to boards and                  
commissions taken during a joint session on February 15, 1995,                 
underscores the importance of clarifying the law regarding                     
gubernatorial appointments and the Legislature's delegated powers of           
confirmation.  Alaskans are not well served by unnecessary                     
confrontations between the legislative and executive branches of               
government.                                                                    
                                                                               

1995-02-22                     House Journal                      Page 0437
This dispute does a disservice to the Alaskans who have volunteered            
their time on various boards and commissions and casts a legal cloud           
on actions taken by the quasi-judicial and regulatory bodies involved.         
Nor is it fair or reasonable to ask these citizens to resolve this dispute     
in court.                                                                      
                                                                               
As the sitting governor, I have the authority to transmit to the               
Legislature the names of appointments to boards and commissions.               
This authority exists regardless of actions made by my predecessor in          
office.  I understand that you disagree with this view of the law.             
However, I am confident that you agree that a final determination by           
the Alaska Supreme Court would avoid a repeat of this dispute, which           
invariably occurs during the initial term of every governor.                   
                                                                               
For these reasons, I request your cooperation in immediately bringing          
before our courts a test of the validity of the confirmations allegedly        
approved by the Legislature.  I am told that only through legal action         
can this matter be resolved with finality. Only in this way can the            
affected boards and commissions proceed with their work with a                 
minimum of disruption.                                                         
                                                                               
By clarifying the rules, we all win.                                           
                                                                               
									Sincerely,

A letter and report dated February 15, 1995, was received from Joseph

Joint Journal Supplement No. 9.                                                
                                                                               
                                                                               
Speaker Phillips referred the report to the Rules Committee.
