CHAIR COGHILL announced the consideration of SB 100.                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR   DENNIS  EGAN,   sponsor   of  SB   100,  Alaska   State                                                               
Legislature, stated that the bill has no opposition.                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
2:27:04 PM                                                                                                                    
KATHY  WASSERMAN, Executive  Director,  Alaska Municipal  League,                                                               
Juneau,  Alaska, described  SB 100  as a  housekeeping bill  that                                                               
will fix  an unintended consequence  and allow  municipalities to                                                               
again file  leans. They were  prohibited following the  Cutler v.                                                               
Kodiak Island Borough decision. She  noted the letters of support                                                               
from Anchorage, Juneau, Fairbanks, Kenai, Sitka, and Kodiak.                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
2:28:16 PM                                                                                                                    
BILL  FALSEY,  Municipal  Attorney,  Municipality  of  Anchorage,                                                               
Anchorage, Alaska, advised that  the Anchorage Assembly last year                                                               
identified  a  legislative  priority  to  change  state  law  and                                                               
restore  the ability  of municipalities  to  protect citizens  by                                                               
recording liens. SB 100 would  accomplish that goal. It addresses                                                               
an  unintended consequence  of a  lawsuit concerning  disgruntled                                                               
citizens who  filed liens  against the  personal property  of the                                                               
Anchorage  mayor  and  various  assembly members.  He  said  that                                                               
municipal liens were swept into  the same net when that nefarious                                                               
practice was  eliminated. He suggested  members look at  Title 34                                                               
and the variety  of liens the legislature allows  for citizens to                                                               
secure their debts.                                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
2:30:26 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR COGHILL found no questions and solicited a motion.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
2:30:50 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR  COSTELLO  moved  to  report  SB  100,  version  J,  from                                                               
committee  with individual  recommendations  and attached  fiscal                                                               
note(s).                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  COGHILL  announced  that  without  objection,  SB  100  is                                                               
reported from the Senate Judiciary Standing Committee.
