  Number 010                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE HUDSON gave a report on problems and                          
  suggestions from the Small Business Subcommittee:                            
                                                                               
  1.  Alaska needs a long-term economic policy.                                
  2.  Small businesses need better loan and grant information.                 
  3.  There should be more uniformity in bonding and reporting                 
      requirements.                                                            
  4.  Licenses should be consolidated into one per business.                   
  5.  All legislative mandates should contain a cost benefit                   
      analysis.                                                                
  6.  The Governor's Office should submit an annual report to                  
      the legislature of federal policies affecting Alaskan                    
      business.                                                                
  7.  The Administration should designate one position in each                 
      department to handle business-specific matters.

  CHAIR MACLEAN said that Commissioner Fuhs had indicated the                  
  Department of Commerce and Economic Development will                         
  establish a 1-800 phone number with information for all                      
  small businesses.                                                            
                                                                               
  Number 455                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHERYL SUTTON, LEGISLATIVE AIDE, REPRESENTATIVE CARL MOSES,                  
  said small businesses should receive the report that will be                 
  generated by this committee.                                                 
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE BILL HUDSON said this was a good idea.                        
                                                                               
  Number 495                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JEANNETTE JAMES mentioned the need to avoid                   
  duplication between departments, and suggested contracting                   
  with private businesses to provide some services such as                     
  advertising Alaska.                                                          
                                                                               
  Number 535                                                                   
  HJR 11 - REPEAL OF REGULATIONS BY LEGISLATURE                                
                                                                               
  CHAIR MACLEAN concurred that legislative review of                           
  departments was needed.  The Task Force agreed to add HJR 11                 
  to its list of priority legislation.  She reviewed the                       
  status of all priority bills per the list she distributed.                   
  Number 565                                                                   
                                                                               
  HB 498 - MINERAL EXPLORATION INCENTIVE CREDITS                               
                                                                               
  The Task Force discussed mineral and coal exploration                        
  incentive credits and agreed to add HB 498 to the list.                      
                                                                               
  CHAIR MACLEAN requested members to submit any new bills to                   
  be endorsed by the end of the week.                                          
  Number 595                                                                   
                                                                               
  SB 212 - STATE PROCUREMENTS AND PUBLICATIONS                                 
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE MOSES reminded the Task Force that the Alaska                 
  Seafood Marketing Institute had requested exemption from the                 
  procurement requirements in SB 212.                                          
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE HUDSON said he would work with REPRESENTATIVE                 
  MOSES on this, and CHAIR MACLEAN said the Task Force would                   
  support such an amendment.                                                   
  Number 605                                                                   
                                                                               
  HB 183 - TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR: FAIRBANKS-NOME                             
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES presented HB 183.                                       
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE HUDSON asked if the Russians had expressed                    
  interest and was assured they had.                                           
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JOE GREEN added that in addition to its many                  
  other benefits, a railroad was nonpolluting.                                 
                                                                               
  Number 688                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIR MACLEAN stated she and most Native groups would find                   
  the bill easier to accept if "road" was taken out of the                     
  title and the bill was limited to "railroads".                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES said she was agreeable to such an                       
  amendment.  CHAIR MACLEAN said she would offer this                          
  amendment in Finance.                                                        
                                                                               
  TAPE 94-07, SIDE B                                                           
  Number 000                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES reiterated that the Department of                       
  Transportation had requested that "road" be included in the                  
  bill, and she would not mind having it taken out.                            
                                                                               
  Number 040                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIR MACLEAN said the Task Force would endorse HB 183 with                  
  the amendment to take "road" out of the title.                               
  Number 220

  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES also requested that HB 184/SB 135 be                    
  added to the list.  The Task Force agreed to endorse this                    
  bill as well.                                                                
  Number 240

  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES suggested HB 300 be added to the list                   
  and CHAIR MACLEAN suggested adding HB 498 to the list, as                    
  well.  The Task Force agreed to endorse both these bills.

  Legislative Assistant, BARBARA COTTING presented                             
  information. REPRESENTATIVE HUDSON said he liked the bill.                   
  There were no objections, so HB 367 was added to the list.
