CHAIR  EGAN announced  HB 146  to be  up for  consideration [CSHB
146(RES) was before the committee].                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
2:41:51 PM                                                                                                                    
REPRESENTATIVE TAMMY  WILSON, sponsor  of HB 146,  explained that                                                               
it restores  a revisionary  property right  to those  affected by                                                               
the repeal of  Section 12.09 of the Alaska  Railroad Transfer Act                                                               
(ARTA) in  2003. The repeal was  done to address title  issues of                                                               
concern. However, in the process,  the reversionary rights of the                                                               
property  owners,   the  right  that  allowed   them  to  receive                                                               
ownership of  their property once  the right-of-way is  no longer                                                               
in use, was  also repealed. It's important to  remember that this                                                               
bill  only restores  a right  that was  taken away.  It does  not                                                               
grant anyone  special privileges beyond  what was in ARTA  and it                                                               
only applies to the homesteads  along the Eielson Spur. It's also                                                               
important to  know that  all affected  parties, the  Railroad and                                                               
the constituent, are in agreement with this bill.                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
2:43:20 PM                                                                                                                    
BILL  HUPRICH,  general   counsel,  Alaska  Railroad  Corporation                                                               
(ARRC), said he  was available to answer questions on  HB 146 and                                                               
that they support this bill.                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
2:44:13 PM                                                                                                                    
BONNE' WOLDSTAD,  representing herself,  North Pole, said  HB 146                                                               
gives them back their rights and that she supported it.                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  EGAN found  no further  comments or  questions and  closed                                                               
public testimony saying HB 146 would be held.
