Members absent were Representatives Hudson, Bunde, Finkelstein, and Mulder. SB 132 - LOANS FOR IFQ'S CHAIRMAN BILL WILLIAMS announced the committee would hear SB 132, allowing loans from the state's fisheries revolving loan fund to be used for the purchase of Individual Fishing Quota shares. He stated that a full public hearing on SB 132 was held January 21. At that meeting, the committee adopted the proposed Resources Committee Substitute version of the bill, the Resources Letter of Intent and the attached Commerce Department fiscal note. He noted that the committee had decided to hold the bill for final action until additional information requested by Representative Hudson was received from Phil Smith of the National Marine Fisheries Service. CHAIRMAN WILLIAMS told members that on Friday, January 28, the information received from Mr. Smith was distributed, and added since that time, a letter from the Alaska Longline Fishermen's Association had been received which was in committee member's folders. He said in that letter, the Association supports the quick passage of the committee's CS for SB 132 and explains other ideas they have about additional ways that Individual Fishing Quota shares might be kept in the hands of Alaskans. Number 045 REPRESENTATIVE PAT CARNEY made a motion to MOVE HCS CSSB 132(RES) with the attached letter of intent and fiscal note with INDIVIDUAL RECOMMENDATIONS. CHAIRMAN WILLIAMS asked if there were objections to the motion and hearing none, the MOTION PASSED. ANNOUNCEMENTS CHAIRMAN WILLIAMS reminded committee members that last week when they heard HJR 49 relating to the drafting of federal regulations for the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA '90), the committee had decided to try and set up a meeting with someone from the federal Minerals Management Service (MMS). He recalled that the MMS is having a public hearing on the OPA '90 regulations in Anchorage on February 16, and the committee was concerned because of session, they would not be able, as a legislative group, to express concerns or participate in the process. CHAIRMAN WILLIAMS announced that arrangements had been made for a fairly high level official to come from Washington, D.C., to meet with the committee on February 15. Mr. Jeff Zippin has agreed to brief the committee and discuss the OPA '90 issues. He noted that Mr. Zippen is Chief of the Division of Inspection, Compliance and Training, which is the MMS Division in charge of the OPA '90 regulations. He said another official, who is in the Anchorage MMS office is also planning to attend the meeting. CHAIRMAN WILLIAMS advised committee members that the meeting is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 15. He said Representative Hudson agreed to allow the committee to use the Labor and Commerce Committee time slot to accommodate the meeting. Chairman Williams extended an invitation to the Labor and Commerce Committee to also join the meeting. He added that Senator Ted Stevens had also been invited to attend, but no response had been received to date. CHAIRMAN WILLIAMS announced the committee will meet Monday, February 7 to hear House Bill 266, relating to the extension of the Big Game Commercial Services Board and House Bill 343, relating to resident sportfish and hunting license fees. ADJOURNMENT There being no further business to come before the House Resources Committee, Chairman Williams adjourned the meeting at 8:25 a.m.
