CHAIR  CLAMAN spoke  to Amendment  1.   He  said it  would add  a

prime sponsor of HB 3, said she is fine with Amendment 1.

REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN  asked  for  a  definitions  showing  the                                                               
difference between "security" and "state economic security".                                                            
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE CLAMAN  proffered that  an example of  security is                                                               
public security, such as a  threat to the public safety database,                                                               
while a  threat to  the transportation of  oil would  be directly                                                               
related  to  economic  security.   In  response  to  a  follow-up                                                               
question, he said  he thinks under the  proposed legislation, the                                                               
governor  would have  the authority  to declare  an emergency  if                                                               
there  was a  threat to  the pipeline.   To  a further  follow-up                                                               
regarding web sites,  he said the answer depends  on the specific                                                               
situation; a  massive web  site with a  tremendous amount  of use                                                               
that  is getting  threatened  is different  from  a personal  web                                                               
site.   He  said Amendment  1  "doesn't propose  to provide  that                                                               
level of definition."                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
2:22:47 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  VANCE  said  she   likes  the  effort  to  define                                                               
critical infrastructure  in terms of cybersecurity;  however, she                                                               
said  all  the lines  in  Amendment  1 that  reference  security,                                                               
economic security, and  public health and safety  may be limiting                                                               
what can  be done.   She suggested ending the  sentence following                                                               
"have a debilitating  effect".  She expressed  concern that there                                                           
may be things that would fall  under that definition that are not                                                               
listed in Amendment 1.                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
2:24:36 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  CLAMAN responded  that he  would not  support that  change

CHAIR  CLAMAN observed  that Amendment  2 would  require a  title                                                               
change to the  purpose of the bill.  Further,  he stated that the                                                               
proposed  amendment would  delve  into "a  whole  new area  about                                                               
declarations  of disaster,"  which  he said  has  never been  the                                                               
subject  of  the  proposed  legislation.    Therefore,  he  ruled                                                               
Amendment 2 out of order.

REPRESENTATIVE  VANCE objected.   She  observed that  Amendment 2                                                               
applies to  Section 1 of  CSHB 3(STA); therefore,  she questioned                                                               
how it would be out of order.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR CLAMAN  explained that part  of Amendment 2 proposes  a new                                                               
section  not part  of AS  26.23.900; it  goes into  AS 26.23.020,                                                               
which  addresses  the  declaration   itself  as  opposed  to  the                                                               
cybersecurity issue.   He  said, "This  is the  sort of  thing we                                                               
should spend  a lot more time  reviewing than taking it  up as an

REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN  asked if it was  Chair Claman's intention                                                               
to rule all amendments that change the bill title out of order.                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR CLAMAN said this is not  a blanket rule.  He explained that                                                               
under  Rule 1  in Mason's  Manual,  the committee  is allowed  to                                                               
control the debate  and "not spend excessive time  on things that                                                               
aren't  really relevant  to the  matter at  hand."   He suggested                                                               
Representative  Eastman's proper  venue  is to  introduce a  bill                                                               
taking up these issues.

A roll  call vote was  taken.  Representatives  Drummond, Snyder,                                                               
Kreiss-Tomkins, and  Claman voted in  favor of the ruling  of the

voted against it.  Therefore, the  ruling of the chair was upheld

REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN  asked  whether   Amendment  3  had  been

REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN objected  and spoke to his  objection.  He

[Amendment 4]  would not be a  wise use of the  committee's time;

being no further objection, Amendment 5 was [adopted].

REPRESENTATIVE SNYDER objected for the purpose of discussion.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN spoke to Amendment  6.  He said the reason                                                               
is  that the  bill sponsor  had said  that "event"  was what  was                                                               
originally intended.   He said he was offering  the amendment but                                                               
taking no position  on it.  In response to  a question from Chair                                                               
Claman, he explained the reason  he had not combined Amendments 5                                                               
and 6 was for the purpose of clarity.

MR.  BREUNIG,  in  response  to  Chair  Claman,  said  he  thinks                                                               
"vulnerability" speaks  to potential  outcomes.  He  said "event"                                                               
is broader but does not damage  "the integrity and intent of this

REPRESENTATIVE JOHNSON, in response to  Chair Claman, said she is                                                               
fine with Amendment  6 because she does not think  it changes the

There being no further objection, Amendment 6 was [adopted].

since it  would broaden  the degree  to which  a disaster  can be
