                    NINETEENTH LEGISLATURE -- SECOND SESSION                   
                                                                               
Juneau, Alaska                       Monday              April 1, 1996         
                                                                               
                                                                               
                               Eighty-fifth Day                              
                                                                               
Pursuant to adjournment, the House was called to order by Speaker              
Phillips at 10:26 a.m.                                                         
                                                                               
Roll call showed 38 members present.  Representatives Moses and                
Navarre were absent and their presence was noted later.                        
                                                                               
The invocation was offered by the Chaplain, Brian Ewing of the                 
Calvary Fellowship.  Representative Green moved and asked                      
unanimous consent that the invocation be spread on the journal.  There         
being no objection, it appears below:                                          
                                                                               
Father God, we praise Your name Father, that You are the                      
God of all the earth Lord, and in Your word  You said, ` turn                  
to me and be saved all ye nations.'                                            
                                                                               
And Father I want to confess and  we want to admit Father,                    
before You, that the  problem is not in our righteousness but                  
our lack of it.  Father, we have failed You in many ways.                      
Daily, Lord, I fail You and I need the forgiveness that comes                  
from Jesus Lord and so we turn to You.  You said theres                        
salvation. Theres  salvation in  no other name, no other name                  
under heaven by which we may be saved, Lord.  And as we                        
turn to You, Father, You said that righteousness exalts a                      
nation but sin is a reproach to any people;  in turning from                   
sin, we turn to You and ask that, Father, You would be the                     
One that makes us righteous.                                                   
                                                                               
You would write Your laws on our hearts so that the laws                      
that we make here would be laws that reflect a moral and                       
loving God.  We ask this, Father, in Jesus name.  Amen.

The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Representative Bunde.                      
                                                                               
                                                                               
                         CERTIFICATION OF THE JOURNAL                        
                                                                               
Representative Vezey moved and asked unanimous consent that the                
journal for the 82nd, 83rd and 84th legislative days be approved as            
certified by the Chief Clerk.  There being no objection, it was so             
ordered.                                                                       
                                                                               
                                                                               
                          MESSAGES FROM THE GOVERNOR                         
                                                                               
The following letter, dated April 1, 1996, was received:                       
                                                                               
Dear Speaker Phillips:                                                         
                                                                               
Today, the House takes up your Finance Committee's                             
recommendations for the FY97 operating budget. I am concerned the              
budget course being pursued by the House Majority threatens Alaska's           
economy and the jobs of Alaskans.                                              
                                                                               
Over the past few weeks, my administration has provided information            
to the Finance Committee on the impacts of your proposed cuts. On              
March 22, my Office of Management and Budget sent a compilation                
of all departmental impact statements to the House Finance Committee           
chair. Few of the concerns we raised have been addressed in the                
Finance Committee's version of the operating budget.                           
                                                                               
My FY97 budget is part of a 10-year Safe Landing Budget Plan which             
I have presented to you and the people of Alaska. It closes the budget         
gap in three years, the shortest of any plan proposed. At the same time,       
I followed the three-year, $100 million cut recommended by the Long            
Range Financial Planning Commission. My budget for FY97 cut $35                
million and transferred an additional $5 million in state expenditures         
from pure" general funds to user fees. I continue to believe this              
budget level is responsible from both the financial and service delivery       
perspectives. It sets our course toward a safe landing without                 
threatening the economy or vital services on which Alaskans depend,            
while closing the budget gap within three years.                               
                                                                               

1996-04-01                     House Journal                      Page 3505
The House Majority's approach to the budget does just the opposite.            
While we all support responsible budget reductions, this year's House          
goal is short-term, arbitrary and not part of a responsible long-term          
plan that diversifies our revenues. The University of Alaska's Institute       
for Social and Economic Research estimates $250 million in cuts, like          
the five-year House majority proposal, could cost the jobs of 5,600            
Alaskan workers in both the public and private sectors. Independent            
economist David Reaume says: "Large spending cuts could make the               
difference between a temporary slowdown (of Alaska's economy) and              
a long-term decline."                                                          
                                                                               
The FY97 cuts proposed by the majority endanger public safety, deny            
work opportunities for those on welfare and put Alaska's resources at          
risk by cutting funding for such vital programs as fish and game               
management and marketing of Alaska seafood. Many other serious                 
impacts are outlined in the materials presented to House Finance               
earlier.                                                                       
                                                                               
The budget bill before you also rejects labor contracts with 90 percent        
of our public employees, which were negotiated in good faith this past         
year after the majority failed last year to approve contracts negotiated       
by the previous administration. Our contracts contain the smallest             
increase in two decades, save $34 million over those negotiated by the         
previous administration and would bring public and private wage                
scales closer together over the next four years. These contracts are fair,     
affordable and fit within my long-term plan which closes the budget            
gap within three years. Failure to fund them is irresponsible and could        
shut down government services.                                                 
                                                                               
Your approach ignores the need to diversify Alaska's revenue base. So          
far, the House majority has made little progress on addressing fair and        
modest tax increases on alcohol and a dedicated motor and marine fuel          
tax to keep our roads and harbors in good repair. In addition, the             
House has ignored the important tax increase on tobacco products that          
would not only raise revenues but serve as a major deterrent to                
hooking our kids on tobacco. To not address this is irresponsible.             
                                                                               
Your proposal takes $21 million in earnings from the Alaska Industrial         
Development and Export Authority (AIDEA). This will significantly              
reduce the financing available for major economic development                  
projects creating jobs for Alaskans. A similar proposal last year created      

1996-04-01                     House Journal                      Page 3506
considerable concern from bond rating agencies and threatened the              
agency's excellent bond rating. A respected Alaska commercial and              
investment real estate analyst recently characterized the House plan as        
"one of the most ill-conceived, short-sighted and frankly, foolish things      
the Legislature could do."                                                     
                                                                               
Your proposal to shift $20 million in Alaska Housing Finance                   
Corporation earnings from basic capital expenditures to the general            
fund raises similar concerns. Although it doesn't change the amount of         
corporate receipts used, it results in reduced attention to the state's        
infrastructure. Additionally, the AHFC decision will put incredible            
pressure on an already bare bones capital budget. Together with your           
plan to reduce the capital budget to $100 million and your proposed            
shift of $6.7 million in operating expenses to the capital budget, you         
will have to cut $37 million from the $163 million general fund/AHFC           
capital budget I proposed.                                                     
                                                                               
I have detailed a long-range financial plan that works. It closes the          
budget gap within three years without endangering essential services           
or the state's economy. Cuts of the magnitude you propose are                  
unnecessary and jeopardize our future. The Legislature has promised            
and Alaskans expect you to commit to a long-term budget solution. I            
believe that solution must close the budget gap, continue responsible          
budget cuts, protect and grow the Permanent Fund and dividends,                
provide for critical capital needs, diversify our revenue base, provide        
adequate reserves, deliver essential services and give future generations      
of Alaskans a broad range of financial tools to keep the budget                
balanced.                                                                      
                                                                               
I pledge my continued efforts to work with you toward this goal.               
                                                                               
								Sincerely,                                                             
								/s/

								Governor
