    In the tradition in which I was raised, it was customary for us                                                             
    to bow our heads and fold our hands during prayer.  This was                                                                
    a signal of reverence, but I have come to discover that it can                                                              
    also draw me inward and cut me off from community.                                                                          
    Recently I have begun to pray with my palms turned upward                                                                   
    and my head lifted up, and I have discovered that when I do                                                                 
    that I am more open.  In whatever way you ready yourself, I                                                                 
    invite you into awareness of it as we share this time together.                                                             
    Let us pray:                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
    Creator and Sustainer, I pray for openness - openness to your

"Dear Speaker Chenault:                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
Under the authority of Article III, Section 18, of the Alaska

aggravating factors at sentencing for offenses concerning a victim 65

Financial exploitation of the elderly and other vulnerable adults is a                                                          
growing problem. Victims of financial exploitation may not need a

of their money. These victims find it difficult to access the courts and                                                        
obtain prompt and inexpensive relief. With a temporary conservator,                                                             
the vulnerable victim retains autonomy while receiving assistance. The                                                          
ex parte relief from fraud procedure is similar to the existing domestic                                                        
violence protection law, providing a means for vulnerable adults to

financial exploitation.                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
I am committed to protecting our seniors and other vulnerable adults.                                                           
This legislation strengthens the laws against financial exploitation and                                                        
enhances the ability to obtain emergency protection orders for seniors.                                                         
It improves the ability of those investigating reports of harm to obtain                                                        
vital information in a timely manner, and will lead to better services                                                          
and safety for vulnerable adults who are abused, neglected, or                                                                  
exploited and unable to protect their own interests.                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
I urge your prompt and favorable action on this measure.
