                    NINETEENTH LEGISLATURE -- SECOND SESSION

                            One Hundred Tenth Day

Representative Vezey moved and asked unanimous consent that the

Representative Ivan - from 11:30 a.m.                                          
                                                                               
There being no objection, it was so ordered.

and asked unanimous consent that the invocation be spread on the               
journal.  There being no objection, it appears below:                          
                                                                               
God of power, patience and understanding,                                     
                                                                               
As this legislative session draws toward closure, we reflect                  
back on all that has gone before us.  We see that much                         
emotional, intellectual and financial energy has been                          
expended.  From all sides there have been opinions and                         
diverse reactions that have both torn down and built up each                   
person gathered in this room.  Be with each person here as                     
they reflect back and look ahead.  Help us to reflect upon the

mixed emotions that are always a part of the intensity of life                 
and the intensity of decision-making.  May Alaska and its                      
people benefit from the struggles and decisions that have                      
taken place as well as those yet to occur.                                     
                                                                               
In all the legislative action and reaction we remember the                    
people who serve and who are served.  May they always be                       
the focus of all that transpires in this place.                                
                                                                               
In the midst of the difficult and often controversial realities of            
legislative decision-making is the overriding reality of the                   
fragileness of life.  In particular this day we give thanks for                
the life of Eileen MacLean and the contributions she made to                   
this House of Representatives and our state.  Be with her                      
family, friends and colleagues in their time of loss and grief.                
                                                                               
In the frenzy of these remaining days, we ask Your continual                  
presence with each and every person gathered here this day.                    
                                                                               
In Your Holy name.  Amen.

Representative Vezey moved and asked unanimous consent that the                
journal for the 108th and 109th legislative days be approved as
