The invocation was offered by the Chaplain, Laurie Hill of the Baha'i          
Faith.  Representative Vezey moved and asked unanimous consent that            
the invocation be spread on the journal.  There being no objection, it         
appears below:                                                                 
                                                                               
"Veiled in My immemorial being and in the ancient eternity                    
of My essence, I knew My love for thee; therefore I created                    
thee, have engraved on thee Mine image and revealed to thee                    
My beauty.                                                                     
                                                                               
Know ye not why We created you all from the same dust?                        
That no one should exalt himself over the other.  Ponder at all                
times in your hearts how ye were created.  Since We have                       
created you all from one same substance it is incumbent on                     
you to be even as one soul, to walk with the same feet, eat                    
with the same mouth and dwell in the same land, that from                      
your inmost being, by your deeds and actions, the signs of                     
oneness and the essence of detachment may be made manifest.                    
                                                                               
Such is My counsel to you, O concourse of Light!  Heed ye                     
this counsel that ye may obtain the fruit of holiness from the                 
tree of wondrous glory.

All men have been created to carry forward an ever advancing                  
civilization.  The Almighty beareth Me witness:  To act like                   
the beasts of the field is unworthy of man.  Those counsel that                
befit his dignity are forbearance, mercy, compassion and                       
loving-kindness towards all the peoples and kindreds of the                    
earth.

Representative Vezey moved and asked unanimous consent that the

                          MESSAGES FROM THE GOVERNOR                         
                                                                               
The following letter, dated March 21, 1995, was read:                          
                                                                               
"Dear Speaker Phillips:                                                        
                                                                               
On March 6, 1995, I transmitted to you the name of Shirley J.                  
Holloway, Ph.D., for confirmation as the commissioner of the                   
Department of Education.  I have since been advised by the Attorney            
General that an appointment for commissioner of the Department of              
Education does not require confirmation under Article III, Section 25,         
of the Alaska Constitution.  The commissioner of the Department of             
Education is not a principal department head.  Rather, the                     
commissioner serves as the principal executive officer of the Board of         
Education.  Confirmation is not required for such an appointment               
under Article III, Section 26 of the Alaska Constitution.  My                  
transmittal of March 6, 1995 is without effect.  I regret any                  
inconvenience this may have caused.

A House Special Committee on Oil and Gas letter of intent for CSHB             
207(O&G), signed by Representative Rokeberg, Chair, appears below:             
                                                                               
"In amending AS 38.05.180(j) it is the intent of the House Special             
Committee on Oil and Gas to encourage the oil and gas industry in              
Alaska to develop uneconomic marginal oil and gas fields.                      
Modification of the statutes will encourage future petroleum                   
development in Alaska.  The climate for additional capital investment          
will improve the State of Alaska's ability to compete in a world wide          
market.  The legislation creates an incentive for industry to select           
Alaska as a place to invest.  Continued investment in Alaska will              
produce quality jobs for Alaskans and an additional source of revenue          
for the State of Alaska.                                                       
                                                                               
Oversight by the Royalty Oil and Gas Development Advisory Board                
will insure that the State of Alaska's best interests are protected.  A        
stronger definition of a delineated field was included to remove               
ambiguities.  A sliding scale royalty or other mechanism on                    
undeveloped fields has been included for use by the Commissioner of            
Natural Resources when the price of oil or gas changes.  The relevant          
factors of proved reserves, well productivity or capital investment were       
elevated to a higher level of consideration if production would not            
otherwise be economically feasible for a field, pool, or portion of a          
field or pool.                                                                 
                                                                               
A better relationship between the State of Alaska and Alaska's primary         
industry will enable Alaska to be the first choice for investment              
opportunities."

"Dear Speaker Phillips:                                                        
                                                                               
Under the authority of art. III, sec. 18, of the Alaska Constitution, I am     
transmitting a bill to update the state's tuberculosis control program to      
ensure that our statutes expressly recognize constitutional requirements       
when the state must order a person involuntarily detained or confined          
for essential medical testing or treatment or to protect the public            
health.  The bill also makes miscellaneous amendments to recognize             
new developments in the field and to improve the reporting                     
requirements for a case involving a person with tuberculosis.                  
                                                                               
Tuberculosis is still a serious public health problem in Alaska.               
Tuberculosis is a disease that can be spread through fairly routine            
contact such as coughing in a confined, crowded area.  In 1994,                
tuberculosis was diagnosed in several outbreaks in rural villages in           
Alaska.  Tuberculosis can be successfully treated, but the treatment           
requires a patient to take medication for six months to 24 months.             
Since some patients face lifestyle problems that make it difficult for         
that patient to voluntarily successfully complete the entire course of         
treatment or to isolate themselves from the public to protect the public       
health, it is sometimes necessary for orders to be issued and enforced         
to ensure that the patient is following the treatment plan or is isolated      
from the public.  If treatment is prematurely abandoned, a patient's

HB 274                                                                       
tuberculosis can become more resistant to treatment and place the              
public at risk of catching an even more difficult form of this disease         
in the future.                                                                 
                                                                               
The state's tuberculosis control program and involuntary detention laws        
should be revised to explicitly recognize constitutional safeguards            
required in order to quickly respond to tuberculosis incidents and to          
detain or confine a person if that person is unable or unwilling to            
undergo treatment and is a threat to the public health.  While the             
Department of Health and Social Services anticipates that the                  
involuntary detention and commitment provisions in the bill will be            
used only rarely because most people will voluntarily take treatment           
and use safeguards when advised by a medical professional, the bill is         
necessary to allow a system to be in place to respond quickly in a             
crisis situation.                                                              
                                                                               
I urge your support of this bill in response to an important public            
health issue.
