SENATOR SHOWER referred to some  of the counter arguments made by

[April 12] hearing  on SJR 3. He agreed that  the delegates voted

he stated during  the previous hearing, so he  will not reiterate                                                               
their comments. He said he  suspected that the court system would                                                               
try to  make this about politics.  However, [SJR 3] is  not about

that some states require confirmation  of judges and other states

SENATOR SHOWER said that the  Constitution of the State of Alaska                                                               
also required an English literacy  requirement as a qualification                                                               
for voting,  which was repealed  in 1970.  Thus, at the  time the                                                               
Constitution of the  State of Alaska was  being crafted, Alaska's

Frank  Peratrovich,  Klawock.  At  the time,  the  Alaska  Native

SENATOR  SHOWER  said   his  point  is  that   some  groups  were                                                               
underrepresented   with   a   very   small   group   of   experts                                                               
participating,  but the  [indigenous]  residents  of Alaska  were                                                               
underrepresented.                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  HUGHES asked  whether he  would  relate that  to [SJR  3],                                                               
which  would require  confirmation [of  the attorney  members] by                                                               
the legislature.                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR SHOWER recalled a previous  discussion that indicated the                                                               
Alaska Constitutional  Convention was well  represented. However,                                                               
the majority of the population  was represented by one person. He                                                               
offered his  belief that  this is germane  to the  discussion. He                                                               
wondered  what  would  have  happened  if  the  majority  of  the                                                               
delegates had  been Alaska Natives.  He said it was  something to                                                               
consider.                                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  HUGHES  acknowledged  one of  the  sponsor's  foundational                                                               
points, that power is inherent with the people.

SENATOR MICCICHE  remarked that it is  easy to get far  off topic                                                               
during discussions.  He asked the  sponsor to clarify  the reason                                                               
the resolution  is important  and what it  solves rather  than to                                                               
disagree with one of the testifiers.                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  HUGHES   acknowledged  that   some  questions   arose,  so                                                               
providing the  history is important.  She said Ms.  Meade, Alaska

process  for   members  of  the  Alaska   Judicial  Council]  was                                                               
intentional  and  the  current  question is  whether  the  Alaska                                                               
Constitutional Convention [delegates] made a mistake.

SENATOR  REINBOLD   asked  for   further  clarification   on  the

SENATOR SHOWER  reviewed the composition  of the  Alaska Judicial

the [short] answer is yes.

SENATOR SHOWER  reiterated his intent for  SJR 3 is to  provide a                                                               
"tweak" to  the constitutional  provisions. He  expressed concern                                                               
that the  testimony given  [during a previous  hearing on  SJR 3]                                                               
misstated  his  goal [with  SJR  3]  was to  select  conservative                                                               
judges, which he thought "politicized"  the discussion. He wanted                                                               
the  record   to  reflect  that   the  [Alaska   Court  System's]                                                               
contention is  [SJR 3] is  about politics. However,  he contended                                                               
that [his goal] is to correct  a small flaw in the constitutional                                                               
premise. The Alaska Constitutional Convention  set up a system in                                                               
which  three  attorneys  and  the chief  justice  of  the  Alaska                                                               
Supreme  Court can  pick  every single  judge  in Alaska  because                                                               
those  names  are  sent  to  the governor  to  be  nominated.  He                                                               
characterized it as  an oligarchy. The court  system is one-third                                                               
of Alaska  government, he  said. He offered  his belief  that the                                                               
people have  been removed from  that process and the  system does                                                               
not  provide a  mechanism for  votes  to be  overridden. "If  the                                                               
seventh  tie breaker  was  not  a lawyer  or  the chief  justice,                                                               
perhaps there would  not be any bias," he said.  Only lawyers can                                                               
choose from their  own pool, comprised of 0.6  of the population,                                                               
who will sit on the bench.                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
He  clarified  that judges  are  appointed  and not  elected.  He                                                               
acknowledged that  after an election cycle,  judges are retained.                                                               
He said that he has pages  of notes that refute the arguments and                                                               
points made at the last hearing,  but he would not spend any more                                                               
time on  it. He concluded that  SJR 3 would change  the system of                                                               
selecting judges in  Alaska. One argument that  was somewhat made                                                               
at  the   last  hearing  is   that  legislators   cannot  divorce

that everyone  is human  and influenced by  their biases  or else

CHAIR HUGHES  said that  it is  a two-way  street. She  would say                                                               
[SJR 3] is not about politics  but it is about accountability. At                                                               
this point  accountability is  not a factor  until judges  are up                                                               
for retention and  [SJR 3] would change it so  it applies on "day                                                               
one." She thought one interesting  point made at the last meeting                                                               
is that  attorneys are  also constituents.  She pointed  out that                                                               
her dad  was an attorney and  two of her siblings  are attorneys.                                                               
Although she  loves attorneys, they  are not a class  above other

commissions to  appoint their own  members and she did  not think                                                               
the [Alaska Judicial Council] should do so either.

SENATOR REINBOLD  pointed out that  SJR 3 only changes  15 words.                                                               
She said  that she  would prefer to  have judges  elected because                                                               
they need  to be  vetted. She  offered her  belief that  there is                                                               
substantial  political activism  from  the  judicial branch.  She                                                               
said she supports SJR 3.                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR SHOWER pointed  out that lawyers would  still select from                                                               
lawyers and  that would not change.  He said that this  would add                                                               
one  last cross  check  from the  voice of  the  people over  the

who  is  selected  to  be  a judge.  He  characterized  it  as  a                                                               
miniscule step in the process.

SENATOR MICCICHE  related his understanding of  the mechanics. He                                                               
said  that  three [attorney]  names  would  be forwarded  to  the

the  appointees, the  process  would start  again.  He asked  for                                                               
further clarification on any contingency  in place for the Alaska

MR.  OGAN  said that  could  be  done  by statute,  although  the                                                               
resolution is  silent. He said  it could imply that  someone else                                                               
could be appointed and wait for the next confirmation hearing.                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  SHOWER said  that  he has  been trying  to  stay at  the

ELEANOR  ANDREWS,  President  & CEO,  Andrews  Group,  Anchorage,                                                               
stated  her opposition  to SJR  3. She  said that  she previously                                                               
served  on the  Alaska Judicial  Council as  the lay  person. She                                                               
also previously served  as the commissioner of  the Department of                                                               
Administration and  on the  boards for  the Chamber  of Commerce,                                                               
Commonwealth North,  and every Anchorage civic  organization. She                                                               
said that as  the lay person on the Alaska  Judicial Council, she                                                               
had the  opportunity to  argue with  and negotiate  with lawyers.                                                               
She  did not  believe  the attorney  members  overpower the  non-                                                               
attorney members.  She said that Governors  Murkowski and Knowles                                                               
did not  pick candidates from  the three members selected  by the

because  someone did  not get  appointed. She  said she  has been                                                               
threatened during the confirmation process  that she would not be                                                               
confirmed.  She  said  that  the   current  system  provides  for                                                               
justice, which  is what she  really cares about. In  closing, she                                                               
said the system works and is a model system.

DAVID LANDRY, representing himself,  Anchorage, stated that he is                                                               
a  construction contractor  in Anchorage  and opposes  SJR 3.  He                                                               
recalled that Senator Micciche hit on  two things, and the use of                                                               
lawyers in the  selection process is a wise use  of expertise. He                                                               
said that  limiting that in  any way  would be a  rookie business                                                               
move  and  is not  how  businesses  work.  He said  that  lawyers

confirmation hearing process would be a political litmus test.

ERIC MCCAULUM,  representing himself,  Anchorage, stated  that he

WALTER  (BUD)  CARPENETI,  Board  Vice  President,  Justice,  Not                                                               
Politics Alaska,  Juneau, spoke in  opposition to SJR 3.  He said                                                               
the sponsor  stated that  three attorneys  and the  chief justice                                                               
can determine  on their own all  of the judges, which  he took to                                                               
mean  was the  basic statement  of the  problem. This  system has                                                               
worked  very well  for  60 years,  so what  problem  needs to  be                                                               
fixed,  he asked.  Former Representative  Wes Keller  stated that                                                               
that there  is a  potential fatal  flaw in  the system,  he said.                                                               
However, every chief justice has  been confirmed by a majority of                                                               
the statewide voters. He provided  factual history to refute that                                                               
three attorneys and  the chief justice have taken  over the power                                                               
[on  the  Alaska  Judicial  Council].  Since  1984,  the  [Alaska                                                               
Judicial] Council  has voted on  1,389 judicial  candidates. More                                                               
than 80 percent  of those votes have been 5-1  or 6-0 because the                                                               
council members work well together, he said.                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
Second, 75,  or five percent,  of the  votes resulted in  3-3 tie                                                               
votes. However, 19  of the 75 tie votes had  all of the attorneys                                                               
on  one side  and all  the non-attorneys  on the  other side,  he                                                               
said.  In those  instances,  75  percent of  the  time the  chief                                                               
justice voted  to forward the  names to the governor.  The system                                                               
does not seem to be a system that has problems, he said.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
MR. CARPENETI  agreed that  all power resides  in the  people. He                                                               
said  that this  means  that  the Constitution  of  the State  of                                                               
Alaska can be  changed, which is what the  committee is currently                                                               
debating. He disagreed with follow-up  statements that the branch                                                               
that  is supposed  to balance  the  other branches  has no  check                                                               
itself. "That's  just not  right," he  said. The  legislature can                                                               
and often does overturn statutory  decisions. It has the power of                                                               
the  purse. The  governor  has  the veto  power.  The Alaska  Bar                                                               
Association itself  is created by  the legislature. The  Board of                                                               
Governors  of  the  Alaska  Bar  is  comprised  of  three  public                                                               
members. The  legislature and  the governor have  a lot  of power                                                               
over the  [Alaska] court system, he  said. It is not  accurate to                                                               
say  there is  no balance.  The question  is whether  the current                                                               
balance   should   be   upset,   and  he   responded   that   his                                                               
recommendation is that it should not.

CHAIR HUGHES, after  first determining no one  wished to testify,                                                               
closed public testimony on SJR 3.
