Wilson, prime sponsor.  She  stated that the proposed legislation                                                               
would "add an  option to our primary license plate."   She said a                                                               
constituent  told   Representative  P.  Wilson  about   how  many                                                               
compliments  he  used  to receive  on  his  bicentennial  license

in   the  '70s   and  '80s.     She   said  a   recent  poll   at                                                               
carinsurance.com shows  that Alaska's plain yellow  license plate                                                               
is one of the  least favorite of all the 50  states' plates.  She                                                               
relayed that  a former commissioner  of the Department  of Public                                                               
Safety (DPS) said the main reason  the bear was put on the Alaska                                                               
license plate in 1976 was that  the bear is something that all of                                                               
Alaska has in common.                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
MS.  KLEIN  said  another  constituent  asked  Representative  P.                                                               
Wilson  why she  was  wasting time  on  an insignificant  license

pipeline,  and state  funds, to  address.   She said  the comment                                                               
made Representative  P. Wilson wonder  why the  legislature needs                                                               
to  be involved  in what  could be  day-to-day operations  of the                                                               
Division  of  Motor  Vehicles  (DMV)  and  question  whether  the                                                               
legislature should  spend its time  drafting and carrying  a bill                                                               
every time a constituent wants  a specialty plate, when there are                                                               
more  important matters  to consider.   Ms.  Klein noted  that [a                                                               
request for  new license  plate design]  had been  brought before                                                               
the legislature about every two years.                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
8:15:15 AM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
MS. KLEIN stated that under  HB 293, all specialty license plates                                                               
would be approved  within the DMV.  The  [division] would develop                                                               
a  standard procedure  that all  constituents  could follow  when                                                               
requesting a  specialty license plate,  as well as develop  a fee                                                               
schedule that would  cover the cost of all  new specialty plates.                                                               
Additionally,  the DMV  would change  current language  regarding

CHAIR  LYNN,  regarding  Ms.   Klein's  comment  about  perceived                                                               
unimportant legislation, stated that  the consideration of issues

that he wants  to assure the public that  the legislature attends                                                               
to multiple issues quite well, with "a sensitive priority."

REPRESENTATIVE GATTIS relayed that  she has constituents who were

license  plates funded  "shooting  groups."   She  asked how  the

REPRESENTATIVE  GATTIS  clarified that  she  wanted  to know  if,

REPRESENTATIVE P. WILSON deferred to the director of the DMV.

AMY  ERICKSON,  Director,  Division   of  Motor  Vehicles  (DMV),                                                               
Department   of    Administration   (DOA),   said    she   thinks                                                               
Representative Gattis  has a point  that "these  specialty plates                                                               
that are  tied to an  appropriation would  need to be  handled by                                                               
the legislature."  She continued as follows:                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
     So, while we  could take care of  the specialty plates,                                                                    
     and the  ordering of them,  and setting up  the design,                                                                    
     if you're  going to  dedicate it to  a certain  fund, I                                                                    
     think you would have to touch it after we did.                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
MS. ERICKSON, in  response to a question, said she  did not think                                                               
it would  matter whether the legislature  addressed those license                                                               
plates before or after the DMV did.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  GATTIS expressed  concern that  those fundraising                                                               
plates would not be thwarted.

REPRESENTATIVE  ISAACSON  noted  that  he had  been  planning  to                                                               
propose a  broad amendment  to delete  Section 4;  however, after                                                               
discussing  the issue,  he indicated  he was  considering instead                                                               
just deleting  the words "active"  and "retired" - the  latter of                                                               
which  would replace  "former" under  Version N  - in  Section 4,                                                               
beginning on page 2,  line 18, through page 3, line  9.  He asked                                                               
what the effect of such an amendment would be on [the division].

MS. ERICKSON  answered that "it could  go two ways."   First, the                                                               
DMV could "turn that into  a specialty plate," which anyone could                                                               
choose; second, there  could be standards for  which people could                                                               
qualify, which would  require the DMV to set  up some regulations                                                               
to establish what the standards are.                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE ISAACSON asked if  adopting a conceptual amendment                                                               
so  special  request  license plates  for  firefighters  and  EMS                                                               
providers  would  be available  for  those  who had  served  five                                                               
years,  whether  retired  or not,  would  provide  the  necessary                                                               
direction to [the DMV].                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MS. ERICKSON answered that she thought it would.

REPRESENTATIVE KELLER directed attention  to Section 5 of Version

language in Section  5 would put the division in  the position of                                                               
having to choose  between political concepts, and  he opined that                                                               
it does not  seem right to place that task  on the administrative

said they  are a matter  of state  pride.  Nevertheless,  he said                                                               
the idea of [the DMV] having to decide whether someone is pro-

seems to me like we have  avoided that well in the legislature; I                                                               
think it  needs to  be continued  to be avoided."   He  asked Ms.

REPRESENTATIVE HUGHES said  she had been asked to  sponsor a bill                                                               
for a specialty  license plate, but had not done  so, because her                                                               
understanding  was  that many  such  bills  did not  get  adopted                                                               
because  of the  cost  involved  in setting  up  a  mold for  the                                                               
design.  She asked what the  cost was to make a specialty license                                                               
plate.   Regarding  the bear  design, she  noted that  the fiscal                                                               
note is for the design, but  does not address the cost of setting                                                               
up the equipment to create the licenses.                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
MS.  ERICKSON   answered  that  the   DMV  works   with  whatever                                                               
organization wants  the plate and  gives them  specifications for                                                               
the size of  the plate and the  type of file in  which the design                                                               
needs to be  made.  The design  then needs to be  approved by the                                                               
commissioner of DOA.   The cost to set up  the license with DMV's                                                               
vendor is $250, which is stated in the fiscal note.

REPRESENTATIVE  P.  WILSON  indicated   that  she  supported  the                                                               
conceptual amendment  suggested by Representative Isaacson.   She                                                               
said currently DOA handles the  design of the license plates; the                                                               
legislature merely tells the department what it wants.

REPRESENTATIVE ISAACSON  moved to  adopt Conceptual  Amendment 1,

REPRESENTATIVE KELLER  objected for  purposes of discussion.   He                                                               
asked for the reason for changing the 10 years to five.

REPRESENTATIVE P. WILSON said one  reason is because "more people                                                               
would be interested in the plates."   She remarked that people in                                                               
Alaska move  around a lot.   She said many fire  fighters and EMS                                                               
providers in  Alaska work  as volunteers,  and without  them many                                                               
lives  would  be lost.    Representative  P. Wilson  opined  that                                                               
because of that,  it is "only fair that they  be able to purchase                                                               
these license plates also."

REPRESENTATIVE ISAACSON said he spoke  to two fire chiefs and one                                                               
police chief.   He said the fire chiefs explained  that they want                                                               
the specialized plates made available  to both retired and active                                                               
fire fighters,  but not to  someone who  has only been  with them                                                               
for  six  months; therefore,  a  five-year  requirement would  be                                                               
good.     He  relayed  that   the  police  chief   instructs  his                                                               
departments to  view the  license plates as  a badge  of service,                                                               
not a license to speed.                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  KELLER removed  his  objection to  the motion  to                                                               
adopt Conceptual Amendment 1.   There being no further objection,                                                               
it was so ordered.                                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  KELLER  acknowledged he  may  have  put the  bill                                                               
sponsor  on  the spot  with  his  previous suggestion  to  delete                                                               
Section 5  of the bill; however,  he said he still  had concerns.                                                               
He asked the sponsor what she thought about his suggestion.                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE P. WILSON  responded that she thought  it would be                                                               
good to keep the language of  Section 5 in the bill; however, she                                                               
stated that  if it was  not the will of  the committee to  do so,

REPRESENTATIVE KELLER  moved to adopt Conceptual  Amendment 2, to

REPRESENTATIVE ISAACSON objected for the purpose of discussion.                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE KELLER explained  that he sees Section  5 as being                                                               
a problem for DOA if the  department would have to decide between

just seems  like it's something  that the legislature is  here to

politicize the  issue, at least it  would do so "on  the basis of

REPRESENTATIVE    GATTIS    asked    for    clarification    from

REPRESENTATIVE  HUGHES  asked  if,  under  current  law,  DOA  is                                                               
obligated to accept any license design that is brought to them.                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE KELLER answered that  the department currently has                                                               
"broad powers  to break regulations,"  and it can choose  "yes or                                                               
no."   He  said it  seems like  putting that  process out  of the                                                               
reach of  the legislature is a  potential problem.  He  said if a                                                               
person in  the department chooses  "to approve something  that is                                                               
politically caustic," then the consequences  to the department or                                                               
division  could be  huge.   He remarked  that the  legislature is

CHAIR LYNN  pointed out that  legislators get elected,  but state

to  streamline that  process, but  would  like to  hear from  Ms.

MS. ERICKSON  responded that currently  the DMV does not  get any

however,  the commissioner  of DOA  has  said that  he would  not

Representative Keller's point  that under Section 5,  it would be                                                               
the commissioner's  responsibility to establish  regulations, but                                                               
she said she does not know how that would be done.

the legislature would be imitating  Congress by allowing agencies
