SENATOR THOMAS  moved to  adopt conceptual Amendment  1 to  add a

SENATOR BUNDE said  he understands that all  this amendment would                                                               
do is put a sunset date on the bill.                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  THOMAS agreed  that was  correct; it  would establish  a                                                               
five-year sunset  date rather than  it being in perpetuity  as it

1:40:02 PM                                                                                                                    
TED  LEONARD, Executive  Director, Alaska  Industrial Development

to get the best rates.                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR THOMAS  said a  refunding bond  is like  refinancing your                                                               
home and  can actually decrease  the bond  rate for a  project or                                                               
facility.                                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR THOMAS  repeated his motion  to adopt Amendment  1. There

no objections and it was so ordered.
