Gordon had an  opinion on Senate Bill 91, and  whether the number

it was difficult  to understand Mr. Gordon's  testimony, but that

REPRESENTATIVE  REINBOLD  asked  whether  he  was  aware  of  any

MR. ALPER answered  that he was not aware of  any opposition.  He

he pointed out,  he did not understand the letter  in the context                                                               
of DNR's  purpose and  intent regarding this  bill.   He stressed                                                               
the importance  of recognizing that  DNR and DOR are  not looking                                                               
to divulge confidential information to  the general public, it is                                                               
simply  about sharing  one  taxpayer's  information with  another                                                               
related taxpayer, within a fairly narrow constrained purpose.

REPRESENTATIVE REINBOLD noted that  if tremendous investments had                                                               
taken  place  on  certain  pieces of  property,  there  could  be                                                               
concerns about  the private sector's  investments.  She  said she                                                               
"is amazed" that  Mr. Alper is not aware of  any other opposition

CHAIR  CLAMAN injected  that Mr.  King  is the  better person  to                                                               
answer that  question because  it is a  DNR bill;  therefore, the                                                               
objections would go to DNR and not to the Mr. Alper.                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
MR. ALPER  answered that Mr.  Hurley, ConocoPhillips  Alaska, may                                                               
also be  able to provide  some insight.   From the  Department of                                                               
Revenue's (DOR)  perspective, the key  piece is that  DOR already

past.   He described it as  "a lightly used authority,"  and that

REPRESENTATIVE REINBOLD  said that Mr.  Alper did not  answer the                                                               
question because she had asked ...                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  CLAMAN reiterated  that the  better person  to ask  is Mr.

REPRESENTATIVE LEDOUX  asked that  if the department  already has

MR. ALPER replied that this  is a Department of Natural Resources

audits that the  Department of Revenue (DOR)  currently holds for

REPRESENTATIVE LEDOUX surmised that  this authority allows DOR to

MR. ALPER  explained that  DOR's authorities  are not  changed by                                                               
this bill,  DNR's authority  is being  changed wherein  DNR would                                                               
hold the  authority to share confidential  information within the                                                               
narrow  context of  an audit  or  an investigation,  specifically                                                               
where  one taxpayer's  information is  being used  to change  the                                                               
royalties paid by  another taxpayer.  For  example, the companies

received a higher price for its  oil than the other taxpayer, and                                                               
that price is being used to  set the royalties owed by the second

CHAIR  CLAMAN suggested  that  some of  the  questions should  be

REPRESENTATIVE  KOPP surmised  that the  weighted average  of the                                                               
three highest  prices in  any one  field comes  into play  when a                                                               
producer contests  a royalty  owed.  Under  the audit  rules, DNR                                                               
establishes the  going price  point that  sets the  dollar amount                                                               
owed, which  is the  average of the  three highest  field prices.                                                               
He explained  that that is  the reason  everyone must be  able to                                                               
see  what the  highest  three  prices were  because  that is  the                                                               
process in determining the amount actually owed.                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
MR. ALPER opined  that he believed that was  correct and deferred

CHAIR CLAMAN noted  that Mr. Hurley will answers  questions as to

stressed  that  Mr. Hurley  is  not  here  to offer  an  official

REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN asked  whether ConocoPhillips  Alaska did                                                               
not have a  position on this bill because it  had analyzed all of                                                               
the information  and decided to  not take a position,  or because                                                               
the company  is still analyzing the  bill and has not  had enough

MR. HURLEY  responded that the bill  has some good aspects  to it                                                               
with  some mildly  concerning  aspects for  the  company, and  it                                                               
decided to "let it take its course."

REPRESENTATIVE  LEDOUX  requested  an  explanation  of  the  good                                                               
aspects  to the  bill, and  the  aspects that  gives the  company                                                               
pause.                                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
MR.  HURLEY   responded  that  this   authority,  given   to  the                                                               
Department   of  Natural   Resources  (DNR)   to  provide   these                                                               
protective orders  themselves, is helpful  because ConocoPhillips                                                               
Alaska's goal  is to try and  pay its royalties when  they become                                                               
due.     He   related  that   the  authority   is  important   to                                                               
ConocoPhillips  Alaska  because,  although the  legislature  made                                                               
changes  last year  in  terms  of the  interest  rate charged  in                                                               
taxes, DNR still has an 11  percent interest rate that accrues on                                                               
unpaid  royalties.   Therefore, he  explained, if  DNR goes  six-                                                               
years before auditing  the royalty, or ten-years  before "some of                                                               
that stuff  is resolved," there  is a consequential  situation of                                                               
11 percent interest over ten-years.   That situation could triple                                                               
the amount  owed, yet the  company's goal is  to try and  pay its                                                               
royalties as close  to the correct amount as possible  as soon as                                                               
they  are  due.    This  legislation  is  another  tool  for  the

ConocoPhillips  Alaska  to pay  its  royalties  as accurately  as

MR.  HURLEY  offered  concern  with   the  section  of  the  bill                                                               
regarding the  protective orders  because "other things  could be

as Mr.  King had  previously testified,  DNR uses  that authority

REPRESENTATIVE LEDOUX noted that the  purpose of the bill, as has

appears to  be broader than  simply royalty audits  and suggested

whether that narrowed  language would allay some  of the concerns

REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN   asked  whether  the   protective  order

somehow leaked to the public.   He further asked whether that was                                                               
a concern to Mr. Hurley and  whether instances in that manner had

MR. HURLEY responded that he is  unaware of any instances of that

the correct  valuation in the law.   He asked whether  that means

MR. HURLEY answered  yes, and he explained  that currently, there

allows  a simpler  process of  going  through the  commissioner's

"you get  there."  He reiterated  that the company's goal  is  to

protective order, in this context, is violated.                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
MR. CALTAGIRONE asked, "The penalties to whom?"                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN  responded that  to whomever  violated the                                                               
structure of a protective order.                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
MR. CALTAGIRONE  asked whether Representative Eastman  was asking                                                               
about  a  producer  misusing otherwise  confidential  information                                                               
that  was contrary  to  the  terms set  forth  in the  protective                                                               
order, and what happens next.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN  answered yes,  and he asked  what happens                                                               
when the confidential  information is misused or  is disclosed to                                                               
an unauthorized party."                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MR. CALTAGIRONE advised that a  protective order should be set up                                                               
in  the  same  manner  as   the  confidentiality  agreements  are                                                               
currently  set up.    This, he  offered,  would provide  specific                                                               
rules  for  handling  the  information  as  to  who,  within  the                                                               
receiving  party can  handle the  information,  what purpose  the                                                               
information can  be used for,  and is extremely limiting  in both                                                               
of  those respects.   There  is also  language that  protects the                                                               
state  from  liability if  that  information  is misused  by  the                                                               
receiving  party.   In theory,  he  said, for  the company  whose                                                               
information is being disclosed, the  remedy is that it would have                                                               
to  pursue against  the receiving  party if  the receiving  party                                                               
misused that information somehow.                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  CLAMAN explained  that all  royalty and  other proceedings                                                               
are  confidential  proceedings,  at  least  until  such  time  as                                                               
someone starts  appealing it  up through the  court system.   The                                                               
administrative proceedings  within DNR  are all  confidential for                                                               
all parties, he reiterated.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
2:33:59 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN  noted a  concern raised  by at  least one                                                               
company,  that through  this bill,  the confidential  information                                                               
under   a  protective   order  could   become  available   to  an                                                               
adversarial  party.    He  asked  Mr.  Caltagirone  whether  that                                                               
concern was unfounded.                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
MR. CALTAGIRONE  surmised that Representative  Eastman's question                                                               
was whether there  was a possibility that that could  happen.  He                                                               
responded that  it certainly  could happen,  except that  DNR, in                                                               
issuing  its protective  order, lays  out specific  and narrowing                                                               
circumstances under which the information  could be used.  In the                                                               
event  DNR had  reason to  believe  the terms  of its  protective                                                               
order had  been violated, it could  go to the superior  court and                                                               
seek the appropriate sanctions (audio difficulties).                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
2:35:05 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN surmised  that  the  discussion is  about                                                               
civil sanctions  and a lawsuit  setting, except, he said  that he                                                               
envisioned  a situation  where an  anti-mining  group might  have                                                               
access to  this information,  misuse it  in some  manner, declare                                                               
bankruptcy  relatively quickly  and  have no  funds.   Therefore,                                                               
that party  would not have  much in the way  of a penalty  in the                                                               
type of  civil suit setting  being discussed.   He asked  to what                                                               
extent that  anti-coal mining group receiving  the information in                                                               
the  first place  could happen  through HB  330, and  whether Mr.                                                               
Caltagirone had considered that possibility.                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR CLAMAN asked  whether Mr. Caltagirone had  read the 2/14/18                                                               
letter  from Usibelli  Coal Mine  that Representative  Eastman is                                                               
referencing.                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
MR. CALTAGIRONE  advised that he  has seen that letter  and asked                                                               
Representative Eastman to repeat his compound question.                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
2:36:37 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN  asked whether there is  a mechanism under                                                               
HB  330 for  that  anti-mining  group to  obtain  access to  this                                                               
information and a lawsuit would be  the remedy.  He asked whether                                                               
there  was a  manner  in  which "they  could  get  access to  the                                                               
information," and if not, his question is moot.

26.05.865, page 2,  lines 22-31, and page 3, line  1, the sponsor                                                               
chose not  to make that  change.  He  asked why the  sponsor made                                                               
that choice, what drove the  language from "alcohol" to this more                                                               
expansive  "alcoholic  beverage  or drug,"  which  could  include                                                               
cough syrup.   He  requested examples, if  any, of  sentinels who                                                               
took non-controlled substances that impaired their duty.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE TUCK explained that when  looking at the role of a                                                               
sentinel or  lookout, he  wanted to  encompass a  sentinel taking                                                               
aspirin, but not  impairing their ability to  perform their work.                                                               
In that  regard, the  sponsor used  the same  conforming language                                                               
under  Sec. 21,  "the last  half of  that."   Representative Tuck                                                               
explained  that they  also  wanted  to "throw  that  in there  by                                                               
changing the  definition and then  throwing that  section section                                                               
[sic] in  there that, if perhaps,  they have taken too  much cold                                                               
medicine,  or  something else,  that  does  make them  unable  to                                                               
perform -- properly  perform their duty, then some  action can be                                                               
taken."  The goal was to  not have action taken for simply taking                                                               
any drug, such as an aspirin, he explained.

REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN  asked what  was driving Sec.  25, because                                                               
if someone was  taking a lawful drug, such as  aspirin, are there                                                               
occasions  where aspirin  has caused  people "to  do things  they                                                               
shouldn't be  doing," and  that there  must be  a way  to capture                                                               
that as an offense.                                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  TUCK  replied  that  Representative  Eastman  was                                                               
correct, except  probably it  would not  be aspirin  but possibly                                                               
cough medicine  instead.   This language  encompasses everything,                                                               
and in  this case, he pointed  out, taking too many  aspirin, and                                                               
not following  the directions on  the bottle may not  get someone                                                               
in trouble, but if it made  them unable to properly perform their                                                               
work, it would get them into  trouble.  He explained that this is                                                               
the  language previously  contained under  Sec. 21  and was  then                                                               
added into the new Sec. 25.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  CLAMAN  suggested  that  someone  taking  over-the-counter                                                               
Benadryl could doze off under its sleep inducing effects.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
2:52:58 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN  advised  that a  sentinel  not  properly                                                               
performing their duty  is an offense in and of  itself.  He asked                                                               
why the need  to create this new scenario where  someone is using                                                               
a  lawful drug  and having  the same  effect, and  how is  that a                                                               
different offense.   He  pointed out that  the amendment  did not                                                               
necessarily say that the person  willfully used the substance, it                                                               
seems to  be a  strict liability type  of situation  because they                                                               
ate something and it was a  drug, and whether they even knew what                                                               
they were doing is not even part of this issue.                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  TUCK   responded  that  most  of   this  bill  is                                                               
conforming  language  to  the  United  States  Code  of  Military                                                               
Justice  (USMJ), and  the  language updates  Alaska  Title 26  to                                                               
conform  to  the  USMJ  model  language  for  all  states.    The                                                               
legislation was  modified a  small bit  to include  the sidebars,                                                               
but basically the model legislation  asked that this language for                                                               
the alcoholic beverages and for drugs is included.                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
2:54:18 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN  offered  his   thought  that  the  model                                                               
legislation was  HB 307, and Amendment  1 was more of  a sidebar.                                                               
He asked whether the idea of  making it expansive to simply drugs                                                               
of any  kind, was intended to  be part of the  model legislation,                                                               
or was it part of a discussion that resulted in Amendment 1.                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  TUCK  answered  that the  model  legislation  was                                                               
basically "a drug,"  and the question was raised  that if someone                                                               
needed to take a cold medicine  or an aspirin for the performance                                                               
of their work, should they be  in trouble for those actions.  Not                                                               
necessarily, he  said, unless  they are  unable to  perform their                                                               
work, and  that section  is added  within Amendment  1.   This is                                                               
similar to the  same conditions under Sec.  21, where drunkenness                                                               
and other  incapacitating offenses  are listed.   They  looked at                                                               
the second half  of that provision and the  two conditions: "were                                                               
found under  the influence of  alcohol or a  controlled substance                                                               
while  on duty;  or  (2) as  a  result of  use  of any  alcoholic                                                               
beverages or  drug, is  unable to  properly perform  the member's                                                               
duty," and they added "that section  to this one as well."  There                                                               
should be more  responsibility put on a lookout  or sentinel than                                                               
on the average member performing  their work, which is the reason

REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN referred  to  HB 307,  Sec.  10, page  8,                                                               
lines 16-21,  and noted  that the  language discussed  a "serious

LIEUTENTANT COLONEL  CHRIS WEAVER,  Alaska National  Guard, asked                                                               
that the question be repeated.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR CLAMAN asked the definition  of "a serious offense" in Sec.                                                               
10 of HB 307, page 8, line 18.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
LIEUTENANT COLONEL  WEAVER responded that "a  serious offense" is                                                               
any offense punishable under the  UCMJ by death or by confinement                                                               
for a term exceeding one year.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR CLAMAN explained that in modern  terms it would be called a

REPRESENTATIVE   REINBOLD  offered   her  appreciation   for  the

that she supports the bill.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE   LEDOUX   reiterated  Representative   Reinbold's                                                               
comments  and added  that  this bill  is an  example  of how  the                                                               
committee process is supposed to work.   She pointed out that and                                                               
when the House Judiciary Standing  Committee worked on the entire                                                               
military justice  process legislation a  few years ago,  that was                                                               
also  an example  of how  the  committee process  is supposed  to

REPRESENTATIVE  EASTMAN  noted a  comment  made  in the  previous                                                               
hearing that there should be regular  updates to the USCMJ due to                                                               
the changes "in other places  and whatnot."  While he understands                                                               
the  reason for  the  updates  in this  case,  he mentioned  that                                                               
uniform  codes are  not  actually  designed to  be  updated on  a                                                               
regular basis or  every couple of years.  The  idea is that there                                                               
is a  code that  is known  and understood  and passed  on through                                                               
tradition  as   far  as  instruction.     There   are  non-lawyer                                                               
servicemembers  who  are  not  only  held by  the  code  but  are                                                               
applying  the  code, and  in  some  cases presiding  over  courts                                                               
martial with little  to no formal legal training.   He encouraged                                                               
judicious use of amendments to  the code and to hopefully capture                                                               
all of the needful amendments now  and not come back for at least                                                               
a few years.                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
3:00:40 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  KOPP thanked  the sponsor  and his  staff because                                                               
this is a  critically needed piece of legislation.   The criminal                                                               
justice system is  always evolving, both on the  civilian end and                                                               
the  military  end  because  there  are  many  moving  pieces  in                                                               
criminal law.   Also, he  pointed out, as technology  changes and                                                               
the  ability  to  access information  changes,  criminal  justice                                                               
matters will continually come before  this committee.  He said he                                                               
does expect to  see amendments in the future,  and he appreciates                                                               
moving this bill.

REPRESENTATIVE  KREISS-TOMKINS  moved  to report  CSHB  307(MLV),                                                               
Version   30-LS1099\D,  as   amended,  out   of  committee   with
