  the  addition of  the Unalaska  City School  and the  Denali                 
  Borough School.

  amount  by $1.4  million dollars  and that  amount  would be                 
  designated to West High School  for electrical repairs.  She                 
  added  that  project was  the  highest priority  project for                 
  Anchorage on the Department of Education's list.

  Representative Navarre MOVED Amendment #2.  [Attachment #2].                 
  The amendment  would  provide the  Kenai  Peninsula  Borough                 
  Schools   "$7,400,000"   dollars.     Representative  Martin                 
  OBJECTED  noting  that the  area  was  covered  the same  as                 
  Anchorage and Fairbanks in the bond package.  Representative                 
  Navarre  explained  that   the  bonding  amounts   were  not                 
  specified and he asked  to achieve a small amount  of equity                 
  for the Kenai Peninsula Borough.   Co-Chair Larson indicated                 
  schools included in  the cash portion  would need to have  a                 
  match.                                                                       
                                                                               
  A roll call was taken on the MOTION.

  Representative  Navarre  MOVED  to  amend  Amendment  #3  by                 
  changing the amount to "$5,000,000" dollars.  Representative                 
  Brown  voiced  her support  of  the change.   Representative                 
  Martin  pointed out  the area would  be protected  by bonds.                 
  Representative Navarre explained that Kenai constitutes  10%                 
  percent of  the State  population while  it is  scheduled to                 
  receive  only  3% percent  of the  dollars available  in the                 
  legislation.  He urged the Committee to vote for "equity" in                 
  the legislation.  Representative Martin OBJECTED.

  Borough School.

  designated to West High School for electrical  repairs.  She                 
  added  that  project was  the  highest priority  project for                 
  Anchorage on the Department of Education's list.

  Representative Navarre MOVED Amendment #2.  [Attachment #2].                 
  The  amendment would  provide  the  Kenai Peninsula  Borough                 
  Schools   "$7,400,000"   dollars.     Representative  Martin                 
  OBJECTED  noting  that  the  area was  covered  the  same as                 
  Anchorage and Fairbanks in the bond package.  Representative                 
  Navarre  explained  that   the  bonding  amounts  were   not                 
  specified and he asked  to achieve a small amount  of equity                 
  for the Kenai Peninsula Borough.   Co-Chair Larson indicated                 
  schools included in  the cash portion  would need to have  a                 
  match.

  Representative  Navarre  MOVED  to  amend  Amendment  #3  by                 
  changing the amount to "$5,000,000" dollars.  Representative                 
  Brown  voiced  her support  of  the change.   Representative                 
  Martin pointed out  the area  would be  protected by  bonds.                 
  Representative Navarre explained that Kenai constitutes  10%                 
  percent of  the State  population while it  is scheduled  to                 
  receive  only 3%  percent of  the dollars  available  in the                 
  legislation.  He urged the Committee to vote for "equity" in                 
  the legislation.  Representative Martin OBJECTED.
