                                      for                                      
                            SCS for CS for HB 4(FIN)                           
                                                                               
One of the three initial purposes of the permanent fund dividend               
program as enacted by chapter 12, SLA 1980 was "to encourage                   
persons to maintain their residence in Alaska and to reduce                    
population turnover in the state."  Nevertheless, the legislature              
determined that there were some reasons to allow an otherwise                  
eligible  resident to remain eligible for a dividend while  temporarily        
absent from the state, as long as the individual retained their Alaska         
residency, if not their residence in Alaska.  However, since the               
inception of the program, the number of individuals who have                   
retained their eligibility while being absent from Alaska has grown            
significantly.                                                                 
                                                                               
Each year there are numerous proposals to expand the list of                   
allowable absences, placing pressure on both the legislature and the           
administration to add to the list of allowable absences.  However,             
each proposal to add another allowable absence raises questions of             
equity and disparity with the original intent of the program.  In              
addition, each added absence increases the number of dividends that            
are paid to individuals living outside of Alaska.                              
                                                                               
Although this legislation contains a provision sunsetting all                  
specifically allowable absences effective January 1, 1998, it is not           
the intent of the legislature to express a prejudice against any of the        
absences allowable under current law as amended by this act.  It is            
the intent of the legislature that the administration                          
                                                                               
1.initiate a comprehensive review of all currently allowable                  
absences and previously proposed absences;                                     
                                                                               
2.develop a philosophical framework for establishing absences                 
consistent with the original intent of the permanent fund                      
dividend program; and                                                          
                                                                               
3.submit to the first session of the twentieth legislature                    
proposed legislation to reestablish a specific list of allowable               
absences consistent with that philosophical framework.

Legislative Letter of Intent.  Without objection, the following                
Legislative Letter of Intent was adopted.

                    The Confirmation of G. Nanette Thompson                    
                                                                               
In voting on the confirmation of G. Nanette Thompson as                        
commissioner of the Alaska Public Utilities Commission, the                    
Legislature does not intend to approve of the removal of Mr. Tim               
Cook from the A.P.U.C. nor in any way retreat from its position in             
Cook and Alaska State Legislature v. Botelho, Supreme Ct. Nos. S-            
7253 and S-7263.  The Legislature's position in that lawsuit is that           
Mr. Cook was validly confirmed and therefore his removal was                   
invalid.  If the Legislature's position is correct, then there was no          
vacancy and Ms. Thompson's appointment, and the Legislature's                  
confirmation of it, would be ineffective.  However, the Supreme                
Court may uphold the Superior Court's decision that Mr. Cook was               
validly removed.  To allow for that contingency, and to avoid                  
rejecting Ms. Thompson under AS 39.05.080(3) by simply failing to              
vote on her confirmation during this session, the Legislature is taking        
this confirmation vote, without prejudice to its position concerning           
Mr. Cook's confirmation and removal.                                           
                                                                               
Letter dated May 5, from Bruce Botelho, Attorney General, to                   
Senator Kelly was read stating the administration's intent to honor            
whatever decision is ultimately reached by the Alaska Supreme Court            
in Cook v. Botelho.
