SENATOR  BILL   STOLTZE,  Alaska  State  Legislature,   as  prime                                                               
sponsor, advised that SCR 16  is a specific resolution addressing                                                               
a  non-binding,   one  time   circumstance  the   legislature  is                                                               
currently  facing with  the capitol  renovation beginning  at the                                                               
time  of  the statutory  90-day  limit.    He said  the  governor                                                               
advised  he would  call  a  special session  related  to a  state                                                               
income  tax  and  other  weighty   issues.    In  the  event  the                                                               
legislature extends longer than  its 90-day limit, the resolution                                                               
reads  that the  legislature would  meet "somewhere  on the  road                                                               
system,"  and  legislators could  make  that  decision should  it                                                               
become necessary.   He opined  it would be irresponsible  for the                                                               
legislature to continue its work  during the renovations, because                                                               
the state  could pay  penalties if it  impedes construction.   He                                                               
described the  proposed concurrent  resolution as  a non-binding,                                                               
registered, official voice of the legislature.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
8:12:16 AM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  VAZQUEZ   commented  that   the  intent   of  the                                                               
resolution  is excellent  because construction  will soon  begin,                                                               
and there are safety issues, and  financial penalty issues.  On a

effective and that  the fiscal note should  indicate the savings.                                                               
It  is economical  to  meet  on the  road  system  with 21  House                                                               
representatives living in the Anchorage bowl area, she said.                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
8:13:50 AM
