MS. CLEMENS said she did not know.

PAT  DAVIDSON,  Legislative   Auditor,  Division  of  Legislative                                                               
Audit, Alaska  State Legislature,  explained to members  that the                                                               
auditors obtain sufficient  information when three out  of ten or                                                               
eleven  files  have  issues.     Thus,  once  the  auditors  have

needed  to be  dealt  with but  the issue  did  not constitute  a                                                               
licensing issue or other issues with the board.

extended four years.                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
MS.  DAVIDSON answered  that the  problems the  auditors outlined                                                               
related to a lack of board  support, not a problem with the board
