NATHAN   MCCOWAN,  Chair,   Board   of   Directors,  ANVCA,   and                                                               
President/CEO,  St.   George  Tanaq  Corporation,   stated  ANVCA                                                               
strongly supports  HB 367.   The  bill is  part of  a multi-party                                                               
longitudinal effort  to bring  resolution to  a problem  that has                                                               
affected village corporate entities  since lands were conveyed to                                                               
the corporations that  were formed pursuant to  provisions of the                                                               
Alaska  Native  Claims Settlement  Act,  beginning  in the  '70s.                                                               
Further, HB 367 is needed  to correct the injustice that occurred                                                               
when  the federal  government -  without notification  - conveyed                                                               
contaminated lands to Native corporations.   Mr. McCowan stressed                                                               
ANVCA  supports  the  bill  in  its  current  form,  without  the                                                               
inclusion of protections for post-conveyance contamination.                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
6:10:28 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CO-CHAIR JOSEPHSON,  after ascertaining no one  further wished to

REPRESENTATIVE PARISH expressed his support for the bill.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
6:11:21 PM
