REPRESENTATIVE GRUENBERG explained that  the letter of intent was

that the letter merely asks  the Alaska Supreme Court to increase

CHAIR KELLER pointed  out that currently HB 63  is only proposing

Alaska Bar Association.                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE GRUENBERG,  in response  to comments,  offered his                                                               
belief  that it's  very important  to  encourage the  ABA "to  do                                                               
this," and characterized HB 63 as a good vehicle by which to do

REPRESENTATIVE PRUITT removed his objection to the motion.                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR KELLER indicated that the letter of intent for HB 63 was
