Representative Weyhrauch requested a ruling from the Chair regarding                                
the necessity of conflict of interest disclosures on the floor. Speaker                             
Harris stated advice from counsel indicates disclosure is not required.                             
President Stevens further stated that if a conflict of interest has been                            
previously disclosed to the Alaska Public Offices Commission, further                               
disclosure is unnecessary.
