       CSHB 379(JUD) VICTIM/JUVENILE OFFENDER MEDIATION                       
 KATHY TIBBLES, Division of Family and Youth Services, testified in            
 support of HB 379.  Similar programs have been used in Southeast,             
 Alaska and Fairbanks, with a high degree of success.                          
 SENATOR ADAMS asked Ms. Tibbles if she has reviewed the proposed              
 amendment.  She had not.                                                      
 CHAIRMAN TAYLOR explained the intent of the amendment is to make              
 sure this bill does not have a negative impact on other legislation           
 that splits juvenile programs.  The amendment was requested by the            
 revisor of statutes.                                                          
 MS. TIBBLES added it looks as though the amendment would place this           
 program in the new Chapter 12 in Title 47, with the passage of HB
 387 as opposed to AS 47.10.                                                   
 SENATOR ADAMS moved to adopt the amendment.  There being no                   
 objection, the motion carried.                                                
 SENATOR ADAMS moved and asked unanimous consent that CSHB 379(JUD)            
 as amended be moved from committee with individual recommendations.           
 There being no objection, the motion carried.
