     In respect for one another's spiritual journeys, let us take a                                 
     few moments to focus on that which is most sacred.  Let us                                     
     pray:                                                                                          
                                                                                                    
     God of all that is truly compassionate, as we pray, we know                                    
     that You hear our deepest longings, our hopes and dreams,                                      
     and even our fears.  Hear us as we pray.                                                       
                                                                                                    
     Order our time today toward listening.  As we listen may we                                    
     hear the hidden hopes and dreams of those who are most in                                      
     need.  Tune our ears especially toward those who have no                                       
     voice in our society.  Gracious God, teach us to listen the way                                
     You do.

The Governor's transmittal letter dated February 2, 2001, appears

"Dear Speaker Porter:                                                                               
                                                                                                    
This bill I transmit today allows state financial institutions to compete                           
on equal terms with their federal counterparts by removing current                                  
restraints on the state's financial industry.  These changes are                                    
encouraged under the federal Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act which permits                                   
the combining of banking institutions with insurance and securities                                 
businesses.  Previous federal law prohibited this practice.                                         
                                                                                                    
This bill allows the Department of Community and Economic                                           
Development to grant state banks those powers enjoyed by national                                   
banks in a simplified, efficient process.                                                           
                                                                                                    
The bill is patterned after federal law, but offers greater protection to                           
depositor and consumer financial records.  The state would use the                                  
more stringent practice of asking depositors and consumers to choose                                
to allow specific disclosure of their records.  Conversely, federal law                             
and many other states allow disclosure unless the depositor or                                      
consumer specifically requests confidentiality.                                                     
                                                                                                    
The bill also clarifies and updates existing statutes, partly in response                           
to discussions with the financial industry.  For example, the bill allows                           
state banks to publish their financial reports in electronic form or in a                           
local newspaper, and simplifies the procedure by which state banks                                  
obtain authority to install off-premises automated teller machines.  The                            
bill also removes the statutory limitation on the interest rate and fees                            
state banks may charge on credit cards and grants credit unions the                                 
authority to issue credit cards.  These provisions will keep Alaska                                 
banks competitive with out-of-state banks.

Concerns over the health and safety of Alaska's assisted living home                                
residents and the wish to ensure greater safety to these vulnerable                                 
citizens is the impetus behind this bill I am transmitting today.                                   
                                                                                                    
Current statutes regulating and licensing assisted living homes apply                               
only to residential facilities that serve three or more adults.  This bill                          
expands the law to include any residential facility that receives state or                          
federal payment for services, regardless of the number of adults the                                
facility serves.

The bill increases the safety of residents in assisted living homes in                              
several ways, including:                                                                            
                                                                                                    
· Strengthening the requirements for criminal background checks                                     
for assisted living home employees;                                                                 
· Giving the state more flexibility to suspend or revoke licenses if                                
an assisted living home operator is convicted of criminal offenses;                                 
· Allowing immediate suspension of a home's license under certain                                   
circumstances, particularly when serious life or safety concerns exist                              
for the residents;                                                                                  
· Allowing the state to petition for a court order to temporarily                                   
administer the home when serious life or safety concerns exist for the                              
residents;                                                                                          
· Allowing an assisted living home to terminate a resident's contract                               
when the resident poses a risk to self, others or property.                                         
                                                                                                    
The bill also provides civil immunity for the state licensing agencies in                           
licensing, monitoring, and supervising assisted living homes.  This                                 
provision is intended to create protections similar to those afforded                               
certain state agencies and personnel working in similar fields and                                  
promotes the ability for employees to do their jobs thoroughly without                              
being subject to certain pressures for quick or rash decisions.  The                                
licensing agencies and the state would still be liable if the damage                                
occurred due to grossly negligent or reckless, or intentional, conduct.                             
                                                                                                    
I urge your prompt and favorable action on this measure.

"Dear Speaker Porter:                                                                               
                                                                                                    
I am transmitting this bill to help ensure the state recorder's office can                          
do the best possible job in its task as depository of vital documents                               
related to real estate and secured personal property transactions

Under this bill the customers who use the recorder's office, well over                              
50,000 contacts annually, will directly support its operations.  Receipts                           
for recording and other fees of this office will be accounted for                                   
separately and intended for appropriation to run the recording                                      
functions of the state.  This funding method should provide the                                     
recorder's office with the resources needed to maintain and improve                                 
operations, including upgrading recording office systems to stay                                    
abreast of technological advances in the field, as well as to                                       
permanently preserve the millions of records in its custody.                                        
                                                                                                    
The state recorder's office is responsible for recording and preserving                             
more than 200,000 documents per year.  It is necessary to the health of                             
Alaska's economy that this office functions efficiently and offers
