There being no objection, it appears below:                                    
                                                                               
Heavenly Father:                                                              
                                                                               
As this group of men and women gather today to be about the                   
business of this State's government and representing its people                
in that process, we humbly acknowledge that You are the                        
source of wisdom.  And, I sincerely ask that You would share                   
some of it with them as they consider the matters before them                  
today.  May each legislator see clearly to the heart and truth                 
of each issue upon which they must vote.  As they serve the                    
people of Alaska today, may they do so with dignity and                        
foresight.                                                                     
                                                                               
Amen.

Representative Vezey rose to a point of order, stating that debate             
should be confined to the amendment before the House.                          
                                                                               
The Speaker stated the point was well taken.

determination of eligibility for a permanent fund dividend or                  
authority to claim a dividend on behalf of another; and providing              
for an effective date.

There being no objection, it was so ordered.                                   
                                                                               
Representative Vezey moved that the House concur in the Senate                 
amendment to CSHB 32(FIN), thus adopting CSHB 32(FIN) am S, and                
recommended that the members vote no.                                          
                                                                               
The question being:  Shall the House concur in the Senate amendment            
to CSHB 32(FIN)?  The roll was taken with the following result:

And so, the House failed to concur in the Senate amendment, thus               
failing to adopt CSHB 32(FIN) am S.
