REPRESENTATIVE  ANDY  JOSEPHSON,  SPONSOR, stated  that  the                                                                    
Senate Labor  and Commerce Committee did  its due diligence,

Senator Micciche  wondered why  the division's  proposal was                                                                    
higher  than  the  board's  proposal.   He  noted  that  the                                                                    
explanation  did not  give a  reason for  the agreement.  He                                                                    
asked for further information about the board numbers.

SARA  CHAMBERS, DEPUTY  DIRECTOR, DIVISION  OF CORPORATIONS,

COMMERCE,  COMMUNITY  AND  ECONOMIC  DEVELOPMENT,  explained                                                                    
that AS  08.01.065 required  the division  and the  board to                                                                    
work together.  She stated that  it was required  that those                                                                    
decisions  were not  made independently.  She stressed  that                                                                    
those  efforts  occurred with  each  new  fee analysis.  She                                                                    
stated  that the  board offered  observations  that had  not                                                                    
been  taken  into  consideration   with  the  fee  analysis,                                                                    
including the desire to reduce  the surplus. She stated that                                                                    
the  director  opted  to take  the  board's  recommendation,                                                                    
rather  than  the  analysis.  She stated  that  it  was  not                                                                    
unusual, and a sign of a healthy process.                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
Senator  Micciche wondered  whether  the  case was  properly                                                                    
served during  the investigation. Ms. Chambers  replied that                                                                    
the  investigator   reviewed  the  facts  provided   in  the                                                                    
complaint,  and   it  was  determined   that  it   was  non-

agreed with the determination. She  stated that the case was

timely information.  She stated  that the Department  of Law                                                                    
would  work  with  the division  to  determine  whether  the
