  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.

  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

  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.
