REPRESENTATIVE VIC KOHRING, sponsor of  HB 300, recapped that the                                                               
legislation requires that  the public member of the  Alaska Oil &

with the sponsor on the language.                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR CHARLIE HUGGINS asked Mr.  Norman for his thoughts on the                                                               
proposed change.

industry would improve the commission.                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR THERRIAULT asked for the will of the committee.                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
3:44:16 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR WAGONER  motioned to report CSHB  300(O&G) from committee                                                               
with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s).                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  KIM  ELTON objected  to  say  that  the problem  is  the                                                               
definition of  "fundamental" and  there is  no reason  to believe                                                               
that this will  constrain the governor in  making an appointment.                                                               
He  said he  appreciates the  sponsor's intention,  but he  isn't                                                               
sure the bill gets there. He removed his objection.                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR THERRIAULT  announced that without objection  CSHB 300(O&G)                                                               
moved from committee.
