 CHAIRMAN LEMAN brings up HJR 63 (U.N. MEMBERSHIP REPUBLIC OF                  
 CHINA/TAIWAN) as the first order of business before the Senate                
 State Affairs Committee.  The chairman calls Representative Vezey             
 to testify.                                                                   
                                                                               
 Number 012                                                                    
                                                                               
 REPRESENTATIVE VEZEY, Chairman, House State Affairs Committee,                
 sponsor of HJR 63, states passing HJR 63 is the right thing to do.            
 Chairman Vezey gives the committee reasons for passing HJR 63, as             
 listed in the information in the member's bill files.  Chairman               
 Vezey states Taiwan is Alaska's fifth largest trading partner.  No            
 other nation of this status is not a member of the U.N.  It would             
 certainly be in Alaska's interest to promote Taiwan's diplomatic              
 recognition.                                                                  
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN LEMAN asks if there are any questions and if anyone else             
 wishes to testify on HJR 63.                                                  
                                                                               
 Number 046                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR MILLER makes a motion to discharge HJR 63 from the Senate             
 State Affairs Committee with individual recommendations.                      
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN LEMAN, hearing no objection, orders HJR 63 released from             
 committee with individual recommendations.
