CHAIR FRENCH announced  the consideration of SB 62.  It was heard                                                               
previously.  He noted  that  there was  some  concern about  this                                                               
being a dedicated  fund, but it clearly is  not dedicated. Recent                                                               
letters  of   support  were  from   the  Governor's   Council  on                                                               
Disabilities and  Special Education and the  Alaska Mental Health                                                               
Board Advisory Board  on Alcoholism and Drug  Abuse. He solicited                                                               
a motion.                                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
1:36:16 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR  MCGUIRE  moved  to  report SB  62  from  committee  with                                                               
individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s).                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  COGHILL objected  to  state that  while  he agrees  that                                                               
there's a  compelling reason  to fund  Alaska Legal  Services, he                                                               
isn't sure  it's sufficiently  compelling to  put in  statute. "I                                                               
wanted to put  it on the record that I  feel that there's further                                                               
conversation  on   this,"  he  stated,   and  then   removed  his                                                               
objection.                                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  FRENCH announced  that without  further  objection, SB  62                                                               
moved from the Senate Judiciary Standing Committee.
