"Good Morning Heavenly Father, we want to thank You for                       
the past several days of beautiful sunshine with which You                     
have blessed us.  This stunning land in which we live reminds                  
us of a Creator God.  Invisible things are understood by things                
that are made.  Legislation is also understood through the                     
legislator.                                                                    
                                                                               
Help us, O God to see the worth, and the needs of each                        
person whom we serve.  Then give us wisdom, understanding,                     
and compassion to deal justly and fairly with each issue.  We                  
thank You for the opportunity of being a channel through                       
which You want to bless others.  Now help us not to misuse                     
the trust, which others have placed in us.

Let us not forget this great country, and the evil and suffering              
that has invaded our land.  The compassion for others that we                  
have witnessed in Oklahoma reminds us of Your compassion                       
for us on the cross of Calvary two thousand years ago.                         
                                                                               
I thank you, Lord, that Thou hast said, 'Trust in the Lord, and               
do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily shalt be                  
fed.'  Bless each person here today, is my prayer in Jesus                     
name.  Amen."

A House Finance Committee letter of intent for HCS CSSB 142(FIN),              
signed by Representatives Hanley and Foster, Co-chairs, appears                
below:                                                                         
                                                                               
"It is the intent of the Alaska Legislature that it be acknowledged that:      
                                                                               
		(1)  Alaska's most important resource is its people and a                    
well-trained work force is essential for economic opportunity and the          
future fiscal well-being of the state;                                         
                                                                               
 (2)  if the state is to be competitive, it must continue to                   
produce a literate, reliable, skilled, and professional work force in          
order to meet the current and future needs of the state's employers;           
                                                                               
 (3)  to continue to produce a competitive work force, the work                
force development and education programs in this state must be                 
integrated to provide a comprehensive system of education and training         
opportunities necessary to maintain the readiness of the state's work          
force now and in the future;                                                   
                                                                               
 (4)  to maximize the effectiveness of education and job                       
training opportunities in the state, an alliance of available resources in     
the public and private sectors in the state is essential;                      
                                                                               
 (5)  the creation of an alliance of education and job training                
opportunities in the state is consistent with national efforts to              
consolidate federally funded programs into an integrated system to             
provide a single entity to address issues in these programs;                   
                                                                               
 (6)  the creation of the Alaska Human Resource Investment                     
Council will serve a vital role in forging such an alliance among all          
these programs to make training accessible to every Alaskan, to allow          
Alaskans, especially those persons in rural Alaska, to compete in the          
job marketplace."

   "* Sec. 8.  FINDINGS AND PURPOSE ASTO SECTIONS 9 - 16.                    
Many school districts are facing the need to restructure their operations      
and their work forces in order to reduce expenditures and balance              
budgets.  Retirement incentives are management tools that have been            
used extensively by the private sector, the federal government, and            
other state and local governments across the country.  The purpose of          
secs.9 - 16 of this Act is to make this management tool temporarily            
available to the public schools and regional resource centers of the           
state.  Sections 9 - 16 of this Act will enable these entities to be more      
efficient and cost-effective by eliminating certain nonessential               
positions, and producing a net reduction in personnel costs.                   
   * Sec. 9.  RETIREMENT INCENTIVE PROGRAM.  (a)  A school                   
district, regional educational attendance area, regional resource center,      
or the state boarding school may adopt a retirement incentive plan             
under sec.10 of this Act and designate categories of employees                 
eligible to participate in that plan.  An employer need not extend the         
incentive plan to all employees who would otherwise be eligible, but           
may choose to extend the plan only to employees                                
                                                                               
		(1)  in specific budget or administrative components of the                  
employer;                                                                      
		(2)  in specific job classifications;                                        
		(3)  in specific geographic locations; or                                    
		(4)  on the basis of any combination of factors under (1) - (3)              
of this subsection.                                                            
(b)  An employee is eligible to participate in a retirement incentive          
plan under secs.8 - 16 of this Act only if the

		(1)  employee is a vested member of the public employees'                    
retirement system or the teachers' retirement system;                          
		(2)  employee will be qualified to retire under AS14.25.110                  
or AS39.35.370 after receipt of the credit described in (f) of this            
section;                                                                       
		(3)  savings to the employer in personal services costs for the              
employee's position will exceed the costs to the employer for that             
position within three years after the employee is appointed to                 
retirement.                                                                    
                                                                               
(c)  An employer shall file its proposed retirement incentive plan             
with the commissioner of administration.  The commissioner shall               
approve the plan if the plan meets the requirements of secs.8 - 16 of          
this Act.  A proposed plan filed under this section must                       
(1)  identify job classifications of employees, and specific                   
budget or administrative components, eligible to participate in the plan;      
(2)  include a reimbursement agreement that                                    
(A)  requires the employer, for each employee who retires                     
under the plan, to reimburse the appropriate retirement system,                
within three years after the end of the fiscal year in which the               
employee is appointed to retirement, in an amount equal to                     
(i)  the actuarial equivalent of the difference between                      
the benefits the participant receives after the addition of the                
credit under (f) of this section and the amount the participant                
would have received without the credit, less the amount the                    
participant has paid on the indebtedness determined under (d)                  
or (e) of this section; and                                                    
(ii)  an appropriate share of the administrative costs                       
of the program; and                                                            
(B)  provides that contributions from the employer under                      
this section take priority over other obligations of the employer to           
the maximum extent permitted by law.                                           
                                                                               
(d)  A member of the teachers' retirement system who participates              
in an approved retirement incentive plan under secs.8 - 16 of this Act         
is indebted to that system for an amount calculated under this                 
subsection.  The indebtedness is 25.95 percent of the member's actual

exhausted:                                                                     
(1)  to meet the age or service required for eligibility for                   
normal retirement under AS14.25.110 or AS39.35.370, as                         
appropriate;

   * Sec. 10.  AUTHORIZATION FOR RETIREMENT INCENTIVE.                       
(a)  An employer may adopt, and file with the commissioner of                  
administration for approval, a proposed retirement incentive plan for          
its employees.  A plan adopted under this section must provide that the        
application period for participation in the retirement incentive plan is

(b)  The commissioner of administration may not accept the                     
application of an employee to participate in an approved retirement            
incentive plan adopted under this section unless the employee will be          
appointed to retirement on or before August1, 1996.  The employer,             
in a plan adopted under this section, may set an earlier date by which         
an employee must be appointed to retirement in order to participate in         
the plan.

   * Sec. 11.  RECOVERY OF EMPLOYER DELINQUENCIES.  To                       
recover a delinquency owed by an employer other than the state under           
an agreement entered into under sec.9(c)(2) of this Act, the                   
Department of Administration may                                               
(1)  direct that the amount of the delinquency or a lesser                     
amount be withheld from any money payable to the employer by a                 
state department or agency and that the amount withheld be credited            
to the delinquency; and                                                        
		(2) bring an action against the employer.                                    
                                                                               
   * Sec. 12.  REEMPLOYMENT INDEBTEDNESS; PROHIBITION                        
ON REEMPLOYMENT.  (a)  If an individual is reemployed as a                     
member of the public employees' retirement system under AS39.35,               
the teachers' retirement system under AS14.25, the judicial retirement         
system under AS22.25, or the optional university retirement program            
under AS14.40.661- 14.40.799 after appointment to retirement under             
secs.8 - 16 of this Act, that individual forfeits the incentive credit         
received under sec.9(f) of this Act and is indebted to the system under        
which the individual took retirement.  The indebtedness is 110 percent         
of the amount the individual received as a result of participation in a        
retirement incentive plan under secs.8 - 16 of this Act and to which           
the individual would not otherwise have been entitled, including the           
cost of health insurance.  The amount that the individual has paid             
under sec. 9(d) or (e) of this Act will be applied as a credit toward the      
reemployment indebtedness.  Interest on the reemployment                       
indebtedness accrues from the date of reemployment until the date that         
the individual either is appointed to retirement and accepts an actuarial      
adjustment to the individual's future benefits or repays the                   
indebtedness in full.  The rate of interest is that established by             
regulation for the public employees' retirement system by the public           
employees' retirement board and for the teachers' retirement system by         
the teachers' retirement board.                                                
                                                                               
	(b)  An individual who was appointed to retirement under secs.8 -             
 16 of this Act may not be employed by, or enter into a contract for           
personal services with, a state agency or the University of Alaska             
within the three years after the date of appointment to retirement,            
except that                                                                    
		(1)  the University of Alaska may enter into a personal                      
services contract with the individual for teaching or research; and

		(2)  the individual may accept employment with the legislature               
during a legislative session if the employment is on an hourly basis           
and does not entitle the individual to receive retirement, health, or          
leave benefits.                                                                
	(c)  Notwithstanding the prohibition in (b) of this section, a state          
agency or the University of Alaska may enter into a personal services          
contract with an individual who was  appointed to retirement under             
secs.8 - 16 of this Act if the Board of Regents, for the University of         
Alaska, or the commissioner of administration, for a state agency,             
determines that there is a compelling reason to do so because of the           
individual's specialized or extensive experience that relates to a             
particular program or project of the state agency or university.               
                                                                               
   * Sec. 13.  OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET.  (a)  The                    
office of management and budget shall submit a report to the                   
legislature on the retirement incentive program under secs.8 - 16 of           
this Act on January15, 1997.  The report must provide the information          
necessary for the legislature to evaluate the effectiveness of the             
programs in achieving their objectives.                                        
   * Sec. 14.  PROGRAM CHANGES.  (a)  An individual employee                 
does not have a vested or contractual right to a benefit under secs.8 -        
 16 of this Act until an agreement is executed with the administrator          
that specifically authorizes that employee to participate in the               
retirement incentive program under secs.8 - 16 of this Act. The                
legislature reserves the right to change any aspect of the retirement          
incentive program as it relates to employees for whom participation            
agreements have not yet been executed with the administrator or with           
the commissioner of administration.

public employees' retirement system for employees who are members              
of that system, and the administrator of the teachers' retirement system

Representative Toohey placed a call of the House.                              
                                                                               
                                                                               
The Speaker invoked Section 102 of Mason's Manual.                             
                                                                               
                                                                               
The following members moved and asked unanimous consent that they              
be allowed to abstain from voting due to a conflict of interest.               
Objection was heard and the members were required to vote.                     
                                                                               
Representative Bunde                                                          
Representative Davies                                                         
                                                                               
                                                                               
The call was satisfied.                                                        
                                                                               
                                                                               
Representative Barnes rose to a point of order, citing Rule 24(d) of the       
Uniform Rules.                                                                 
                                                                               
                                                                               
The Speaker ruled that the point was not well taken.                           
                                                                               
                                                                               
The question being:  "Shall Amendment No. 3 as amended pass the                
House?"  The roll was taken with the following result:

   "* Sec. 2.  AS14.20.150 is amended by adding new subsections to           
read:                                                                          
	(c)  A school district that has a nontenured teacher evaluation              
program that satisfies the requirements of this section may extend             
the probationary period of a nontenured teacher by one year if the             
district finds, after observation, that the teacher is not performing          
at a level that warrants granting tenure but the district  evaluator           
believes that the teacher's performance may improve sufficiently               
after an additional year of nontenured status to warrant granting              
the teacher tenure at that time.                                               
                                                                               
	(d)  A school district shall establish procedures for evaluating             
the performance of nontenured teachers.  The procedures must                   
provide the teacher with at least two evaluations each year.  An               
evaluation under this subsection consists of a preobservation                  
conference, a formal observation at the teacher's instruction site to          
observe the teacher while the teacher is teaching, and a post-                 
observation conference to discuss the teacher's instructional                  
delivery, planning, interpersonal skills, knowledge of the subject             
matter, and other professional qualities and abilities.  The                   
evaluation shall be conducted by an evaluator who meets the                    
requirements of (g) of this section.                                           
                                                                               
	(e)  The provisions of (a) and (b) of this section apply to                  
nontenured teachers whose nontenured status has been extended                  
under (c) of this section, except that the teacher does not acquire            
tenure rights unless the teacher is reemployed for the school year             
immediately following the three full continuous school years of                
employment.

	(f)  If an evaluator determines that a nontenured teacher is not             
performing successfully, the evaluator shall identify specific                 
measurable and relevant objectives that the nontenured teacher                 
must achieve before being granted tenure.                                      
	(g)  To qualify as an evaluator under this section, the person               
shall demonstrate that the person received in-service training on              
the evaluation policy and procedure of the school district.

	"(c)  Notwithstanding AS 14.20.150 a school district may                   
withhold full tenure for up to two years, for a teacher whose                  
performance has been formally observed and evaluated as                        
needing improvement.  Nothing in this section prohibits a                      
school board from granting tenure to a teacher after two years                 
of satisfactory service.  If in the third year, the teacher's                  
evaluation indicates satisfactory performance, tenure will be                  
offered.  If the teacher is retained for a fourth year, but the                
teacher is not fully tenured, tenure rights become effective as                
prescribed in AS 14.20.150(b).  Non-retention during this                      
second two year period may only be for just cause."
