CECILE ELLIOTT, Staff, Representative  Mike Hawker, sponsor of HB

MS. ELLIOT explained  that the costs of the board  are covered by                                                               
licensing fees,  which can fluctuate  depending on the  number of                                                               
investigations  done. She  deferred  further  explanation to  Mr.                                                               
Habeger.                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
DON HABEGER,  Director, Division  of Corporations,  Business, and                                                               
Professional  Licensing, Department  of  Commerce, Community  and                                                               
Economic   Development   (DCCED),  Juneau,   Alaska,   introduced                                                               
himself.                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR MICCICHE restated the question.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MR. HABEGER  agreed that the  estimated costs were the  same each

to recoup costs as they  fluctuate. Labor costs, for example, may                                                               
increase. The  fiscal note was  determined by taking  an average,                                                               
based on the last two years of expenses.                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
1:56:04 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR DUNLEAVY closed public testimony.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
1:56:39 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR  MICCICHE moved  to report  HB  26, labeled  28-LS0154\A,                                                               
from  committee  with  individual  recommendations  and  attached                                                               
fiscal note.
