WILLIAM MILKS, Assistant Attorney  General, Civil Division, Labor                                                               
& State  Affairs Section, Juneau,  said the primary  question the                                                               
members  had  was  about  the  effect  of  garnishments  or  hold                                                               
harmless provisions  on the dividend.  He reviewed the  intent of                                                               
the  legislation   and  advised  that   SJR  5  does   not  cover                                                               
garnishments.                                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
3:43:11 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR MICCICHE  pointed out that  any other changes  related to                                                               
eligibility would need to go to the voters.                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
MR. MILKS said that's correct.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
3:44:09 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR  SHOWER said  he had  two amendments  for the  committee to                                                               
consider. He also related his intention to move the bill.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
3:44:27 PM

CHAIR SHOWER objected for discussion  purposes. He explained that                                                               
these  are technical  changes that  the  drafter recommended.  He                                                               
asked Mr. Milks to comment.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
3:45:00 PM                                                                                                                    
MR. MILKS  agreed that both amendments  contain technical changes                                                               
that  Legislative Legal  Services thought  would further  clarify                                                               
the bill.  The Department of  Law has no objection.  Amendment 1,

membership of each house.
