3:34:18 PM                                                                                                                    
RYNNIEVA   MOSS,  staff  to  Senator   Coghill,  sponsor   of  SB                                                               
19,  Alaska  State  Legislature,   Juneau,   Alaska,  said  that                                                                
SB  19 was  requested   by the  Fairbanks   North  Star  Borough                                                                
to  address  boundary   issues  in  service  areas.  A  proposed                                                                
committee   substitute   (CS)  would  change  language   to more                                                                
narrowly   define  the  Borough's  powers.   It  basically  says                                                                
if  a  tax  lot  parcel   is  split   into  two  service   areas                                                                
that  the  Borough   Assembly,  with  a  public  hearing   and  a                                                               
vote,   could  consolidate    that  parcel   into   one  service                                                                
area that would have one tax bill.                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
She  explained   that  AS 29.35.450(c)    addresses  boundaries                                                                 
of  road  service  areas   and there   are  now two  exceptions                                                                 
to  having  to  hold  elections   for  changing   boundaries   in                                                               
service   areas.  One  is  in subsection   (c)(3)   that  says  a                                                               
subdivision   or  parcel   for  which   the  only  access   is  a                                                               
road  maintained   by  an  adjacent   road  service   area.   The                                                               
other  exclusion   is  to  remove  a  subdivision   or a  parcel                                                                
in  an existing   road  service   area  that  does  not  rely  on                                                               
the  use  of  road   maintenance   services   for   access.   She                                                               
said this bill adds a third exception.                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
MS.  MOSS  said  there  seems  to  be  a disagreement    on what                                                                
(c)(3)   actually   does  and  the  legislative    attorney  was                                                                
going  to  work  with  the  borough  attorney   to  see  if this                                                                
interpretation    is  incorrect.   If  it  is,  it may  have   to                                                               
be changed before next week.                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR BISHOP said he would hold SB 19 for further work.                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR   MACKINNON   moved   to  adopt   the   CS  for  SB  19,                                                                
labeled 29-LS0326\W, as the working document.                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  BISHOP  objected   for  discussion   purposes  and  asked                                                                
for  public   testimony.    Finding  none,   he  closed   public                                                                
testimony.                                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
3:38:11 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR  BISHOP  announced   that  without   objection  version   W                                                               
is adopted and he would hold SB 19 in committee.
