The athletic commission is established in title 5, chapter 5 and consists                                                       
of four members appointed by the governor. However, the commission                                                              
has not been staffed, nor have Commissioners been appointed, since

unused statute. Currently, there are federal law provisions that apply to

Under the authority of Article III, Section 18, of the Alaska                                                                   
Constitution, I am transmitting a bill that would amend and repeal

The Uniform Land Sales Practices Act requires that a person may not                                                             
offer or dispose of certain subdivided land in Alaska unless the person

The current law provides that the Department of Commerce,

sale of subdivided land, but no registration filings have been received                                                         
since before 2000. Further, the National Conference of Commissioners                                                            
on Uniform State Laws reports that this Act was withdrawn as                                                                    
obsolete in 2012.                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
While the bill would remove the filing and registration requirements,                                                           
which are unnecessary and burdensome, it would retain the laws that                                                             
impose criminal penalties for fraudulent or prohibited practices.                                                               
Therefore, it would still be unlawful for a person, in connection with                                                          
the sale of land, to attempt to defraud the purchaser, or to make an

sale of private land would be a private one, and not overseen by a state                                                        
agency. However, to the extent offers, dispositions, or sales were made                                                         
before the effective date of the Act, those offers, dispositions, or sales                                                      
would be governed by the law in existence at the time.
