                HB 404 BOARD OF CHIROPRACTORS                                
                                                                               
 Number 094                                                                    
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN KELLY brought up HB 404 as the next order of business                
 before the Senate Labor & Commerce Committee.  He asked the                   
 sponsor's representative to testify.                                          
                                                                               
 GEORGE DOZIER, Staff to Representative Pete Kott - Chairman of the            
 House Labor & Commerce Committee, prime sponsor of HB 404, stated             
 the bill would extend the Board of Chiropractic Examiners to June             
 30, 2002.  It is currently due to sunset this year.  It also                  
 contains several repealers.  Section 2 repeals AS 08.20.120(b) and            
 AS 08.20.140.  The reason for repealing the section is that it is             
 not workable: licensure requirements in other states are not                  
 substantially similar or equivalent to Alaska's licensure                     
 requirements.                                                                 
                                                                               
 RANDY WELKER, Legislative Auditor, Division of Legislative Audit,             
 supports SB 404 as drafted.                                                   
                                                                               
 CATHERINE REARDON, Director, Division of Occupational Licensing,              
 Department of Commerce & Economic Development, supports HB 404.               
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN KELLY moved on to the next order of business before the              
 Senate Labor & Commerce Committee.
