  HOUSE BILL NO. 239                                                           
                                                                               
       "An Act  relating to  raffles and  auctions of  certain                 
       permits  to  take  big  game;   and  providing  for  an                 
       effective date."                                                        
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE  CON  BUNDE  stated that  CSHB  239  (RES) is                 
  similar to legislation which exists in  11 other states.  He                 
  emphasized that no hunting opportunities would be taken away                 
  from residents.                                                              
                                                                               
  Representative Martin  expressed concern  that a  government                 
  agency would be directly involved in gaming.  Representative                 
  Bunde clarified that  the raffle would be  administered by a                 
  conservation organization.   He noted  that bison tags  have                 
  previously been raffled.                                                     
                                                                               
  Representative Parnell noted that musk ok tags are included.                 
  Representative  Bunde observed  that musk  ox  are currently                 
  available  by  residents.    He  stated  that musk  ox  were                 
  included as a more exotic animal.                                            
                                                                               
  Representative Bunde clarified, in response to a question by                 
  Representative Parnell,  that guides  would not  bid on  the                 
  tags.  He added that master guides would  volunteer services                 
  to  participate  in the  hunt.    He  stressed that  wealthy                 
  individuals would participate.  He noted that permits cannot                 
  be transferred.                                                              
                                                                               
  Representative Foster MOVED to report CSHB 239 (RES) out  of                 
  Committee  with  individual  recommendations  and  with  the                 
  accompanying fiscal note.  There  being NO OBJECTION, it was

  JAY NELSON,  STAFF, REPRESENTATIVE CLIFF  DAVIDSON explained                 
  that  the Memorial  was established  by federal  legislation                 
  introduced  by  Senator  Murkowski  in  1986.   The  federal                 
  legislation  required that  no federal  money be spent.   He                 
  noted that other states had contributed similar amounts.

  for the bill.  Representative Foster  MOVED to report HB 175                 
  out  of Committee  with individual  recommendations.   There                 
  being NO OBJECTION, it was so ordered.
