Pursuant to adjournment the House was called to order by Speaker                                    
Kott at 10:47 a.m.                                                                                  
                                                                                                    
Roll call showed 38 members present.  Representatives Cissna and                                    
Dahlstrom had been previously excused from a call of the House                                      
today.                                                                                              
                                                                                                    
The invocation was offered by the Chaplain, Representative Kerttula.                                
Representative Weyhrauch moved and asked unanimous consent that                                     
the invocation be spread on the journal.  There being no objection, it                              
was so ordered.                                                                                     
                                                                                                    
     With thanks to the Alaska Humanities Forum whose                                               
     Leadership series inspired this.                                                               
                                                                                                    
     As Sir Ernest Shackleton said, "Leadership is a fine thing, but                                
     it has its penalties.  And the greatest penalty is loneliness."                                
                                                                                                    
     As we begin the final days of this session I pray for courage                                  
     for each and every one of us.  And I'm not talking about just                                  
     the big decisions, I'm talking about the little ones, the ones                                 
     where you lose your temper or not, the ones where you have                                     
     the courage to show patience or not, the ones where you admit                                  
     your loneliness and reach out.                                                                 
                                                                                                    
     Tim O'Brien, in his book about Vietnam, The Things They                                        
     Carried, talks about courage, "If the stakes ever became high                                  
     enough - if the evil were evil enough, if the good were good                                   
     enough - I would simply tap a secret reservoir of courage that

     had been accumulating inside me over the years … it was a                                      
     comforting theory.  It dispensed with all those bothersome                                     
     little acts of daily courage."                                                                 
                                                                                                    
     When the buck is stopping here, it's hard to face it, so I pray                                
     for all of us to reach inside ourselves, to our humanity, to                                   
     have courage.                                                                                  
                                                                                                    
     In closing, I share two thoughts on courage.  First, from the                                  
     Dalai Lama, "Controlled energy comes not only from a                                           
     compassionate attitude but also from reason and patience.                                      
     These are the most powerful antidotes to anger.  Many people                                   
     misjudge these qualities as signs of weakness.  I believe just                                 
     the opposite - they are the true signs of inner strength."                                     
                                                                                                    
     Finally, from the book of Matthew, "Love thy neighbor as                                       
     thyself."  Amen.                                                                               
                                                                                                    
The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Representative Samuels.                                         
                                                                                                    
                       CERTIFICATION OF THE JOURNAL                                              
                                                                                                    
Representative Coghill moved and asked unanimous consent that the

following letter dated April 5, 2004, from Representative Heinze be                                 
spread on the journal.  There being no objection, it follows:                                       
                                                                                                    
"Dear Representative Gara,                                                                          
                                                                                                    
You recently asked me a question in the House Judiciary Committee                                   
regarding HB 452's effect on the state's ability to limit guides.  I would                          
like to reaffirm my earlier statement that nothing in this bill shall limit                         
the state's ability to decide the number of guides to allow in any                                  
particular area of the state.  I hope that this letter will address the                             
concerns you had on this matter.  I would also like to take this                                    
opportunity to thank you for your help in getting HB 452 passed out of                              
committee.  If you have any further comments or concerns please don't                               
hesitate to bring them to my attention."
