Governor's transmittal letter dated April 7:                                   
                                                                               
Dear President Pearce:                                                         
                                                                               
Under the authority of art. III, sec. 18, of the Alaska Constitution,          
I am transmitting a bill that revises geographic pay differentials for         
executive branch partially exempt employees and classified service             
employees not covered by a collective bargaining agreement, and for            
employees of the legislature.  Upon passage of this or similar                 
legislation, I also will issue an administrative order making the same         
adjustments to executive branch exempt personnel.  The bill also               
amends statutes that  relate to certain state aid to municipalities and        
other eligible recipients that is calculated based on the geographic           
pay differentials, and changes or deletes statutory requirements               
regarding salary surveys.                                                      
		                                                                             
In the mid-1980's, the state conducted a comprehensive cost-of-living          
study for the different areas of Alaska.  That study showed that the           
geographic pay differentials contained in AS39.27.020(a) did not               
accurately  reflect the actual differences in the cost-of-living in cities     
                                                                               
                                                                               

1995-04-07                     Senate Journal                      Page 0919
SB 152                                                                       
and towns around the state.  As a result of this study, the collective         
bargaining agreements between the state and the various unions                 
representing state employees, which had differentials based on those           
in AS39.27.020(a), were changed to reflect the actual differences.             
However, because AS39.27.020(a) was not amended, state                         
employees not covered by collective bargaining agreements continued            
to be paid using outdated differentials.  Some were underpaid, but             
more were overpaid, costing the state several hundred thousand                 
dollars each year.  Since the mid-1980's, cost-of-living differences           
within Alaska have been reduced even further.  This bill repeals               
AS39.27.020 and sets out new provisions in a proposed                          
AS39.27.021, to make long overdue changes to the geographic pay                
differentials.  The bill makes certain conforming technical                    
amendments to statutes relating to magistrate salaries and to the              
Public Employees' Retirement System, to acknowledge the repeal and             
the new provisions.                                                            
                                                                               
The bill also provides, as did the various collective bargaining               
agreements, that no employee will have his or her salary immediately           
reduced as a result of the new differentials.  However, I am not               
proposing that incumbent employee salaries be frozen forever.                  
Instead, the salary of an employee who remains working in an area              
where the differential is lowered would not be reduced until one year          
after the effective date of the bill.                                          
                                                                               
One significant difference between this bill and previous approaches           
to geographic pay differentials is that this bill limits, to $30,000 per       
year, the amount of an employee's gross pay that would be subject              
to a differential adjustment.  This acknowledges the basic purpose of          
geographic differentials: compensating for higher basic living                 
expenses.  This approach removes the aspect of raising overall pay             
levels through differentials.                                                  
                                                                               
Statutes relating to state aid to municipalities and other eligible            
recipients for roads, health facilities and hospitals, and volunteer fire      
departments, contain a provision increasing aid to areas with a higher         
cost of living, and tying the increases to the differentials in existing       
AS39.27.020(a).  Because many municipalities and other recipients              
have relied on the current differentials in their planning, this bill          
provides that the differentials in existing law will continue to apply         
for this purpose.

The bill also requires the director of the division of personnel to            
conduct a study every five years, starting in 1999, to review                  
geographic differentials.  This requirement replaces the current               
statutory requirement that an annual survey be done both of cost-of-           
living around the state and of the relationship between state salaries         
and salaries of other employers.  In addition, the bill repeals the            
requirement that the director conduct an annual survey for purposes            
of making university employee salary recommendations to the Board              
of Regents of the University of Alaska.  Because of budgetary                  
constraints, none of these annual surveys have been done.                      
                                                                               
I urge your prompt consideration and passage of this bill.

   * Section 1.  PURPOSE. The purpose of this Act is to provide              
for the orderly transfer of certain assets of the Alaska Housing               
Finance Corporation (corporation) to the general fund through a                
transfer agreement between the corporation and the commissioner of             
revenue.  The Alaska Housing Finance Corporation has served an                 
important public purpose by helping to remedy the shortage of                  
adequate housing throughout the state.  The corporation has assisted           
in providing Alaskans with rural housing and sewer and water                   
systems, senior housing, special needs housing, and low and                    
moderate income housing through its various programs.  The                     
corporation's resources must remain strong in order to continue                
progress in meeting these housing needs, both directly and through             
borrowing in capital markets.  In particular, capital markets require          
assurances that payments by the corporation to the general fund are            
fixed at a prudent and predictable level.  It is the purpose of this           
Act to fix payments to the general fund at a prudent and predictable           
level for the next five fiscal years through a formal transfer                 
agreement.  It is also a purpose of this Act to authorize the                  
corporation to issue bonds to enable the University of Alaska to               
repair and rehabilitate student housing facilities.                            
   * Sec. 2.  TRANSFER AGREEMENT.  The Alaska Housing                        
Finance Corporation (corporation) and the commissioner of revenue              
may enter into a transfer agreement that provides for the transfer of          
certain assets of the corporation to the general fund from July 1,             
1995 to June30, 2000.  The commissioner of revenue immediately                 
shall notify the governor and the legislature when the agreement has           
been signed.

Finance Corporation and the commissioner of revenue, described in              
sec. 2 of this Act, is ratified.  The state pledges to obligees of the         
corporation that the state will not alter the power of the corporation         
to fulfill the terms of any other agreement with an obligee of the             
corporation or, during the term of the transfer agreement ratified by          
this Act, cause assets to be transferred from the corporation in               
excess of the amount set out in the transfer agreement.                        
   * Sec. 4.  BOND AUTHORIZATION.  The Alaska Housing                        
Finance Corporation may issue bonds under AS18.56 in an

shall pay the principal and interest on the bonds from  Alaska                 
Housing Finance Corporation funds and the bonds shall be general
