 SENATOR SHARP brings up HB 10 as the next order of business before            
 the Senate State Affairs Committee and calls the first witness.               
                                                                               
 Number 280                                                                    
                                                                               
 SHANNON MCCARTHY, Aide to Representative Davies, prime sponsor of             
 HB 10, reads the sponsor statement.  HB 10 would require convicted            
 DWI offenders who cause an accident to pay for emergency services             
 that respond to that accident.

 DAVE TYLER, Alaska State Fire Chief's Association, testifying from            
 Fairbanks, states accident rescue is expensive and hazardous to               
 responders, and he supports HB 10.                                            
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN SHARP states he is familiar with the work of rescue                  
 personnel, as his daughter was an EMT with the University Fire                
 Department in Fairbanks for two years.                                        
                                                                               
 SENATOR LEMAN makes a motion to discharge HB 10 from the Senate               
 State Affairs Committee with individual recommendations.                      
                                                                               
 Number 342
