MR. HOKE advised  he is working to obtain $2  million in state or

in fact,  HJR 10 would  remind Alaska's  congressional delegation                                                               
and federal  agencies that  most of the  Lower 48  has benefitted                                                               
from years of  federal funding for infrastructure  prior to 1959.                                                               
In further response  to Representative Spohnholz, he  said he has

bigger grid  is economical  for all users.   Mr.  Duhamel advised                                                               
RBIT is  not a new concept  and was studied by  the Alaska Energy

region that  would benefit from  RBIT.  Currently, the  region is

REPRESENTATIVE HANNAN asked whether  any of the existing isolated                                                               
grids produce excess power.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
MR.  DUHAMEL said  some  produce  surplus power,  but  it is  not

has  additional  capacity  generated  by  diesel,  and  a  slight                                                               
overage of  hydropower in the summer.   If RBIT were  built, CVEA                                                               
could  provide  hydropower  to  more  customers  and  could  also

MR. DUHAMEL  expressed his understanding they  are isolated grids

from the  power utility point of  view (slide 7):   a larger grid                                                               
is better for all; capacity  available to more customers; connect                                                               
isolated  grids;  improved   reliability;  allow  more  renewable

supports HJR 10 for the  following reasons:  gives credibility to

support for HB 16.  She  said the bill would protect "herd share"

GIANA THOMAS said  she is in support  of HB 16.  As  a herd share

REPRESENTATIVE  HANNAN questioned  whether  Alaska  has only  one                                                               
commercial dairy licensed to sell retail products.                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
DR. GERLACH said  correct.  Havemeister Dairy has a  permit for a

REPRESENTATIVE HANNAN  inquired as  to how  to bring  the state's

across Alaska.                                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
DR.  GERLACH  advised  current  state  regulations  prohibit  the                                                               
distribution  or   sale  of  raw   milk  to  consumers.     State                                                               
regulations  do not  prohibit an  individual  from consuming  raw                                                               
milk, or from consuming raw milk  acquired by owning a portion of                                                               
an animal through  a "share operation."  Dr.  Gerlach pointed out                                                               
18 AAC 32.010 allows the consumption  of raw milk by the owner of

the processing  of that  milk into  products for  distribution to                                                               
owners.                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  RAUSCHER  asked  for  the  precautions  that  are                                                               
necessary related to raw milk.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
DR. GERLACH said  raw milk is considered a  high-risk product for                                                               
foodborne pathogens for  two reasons:  cattle and  goats can shed                                                               
pathogens directly  into the milk  and the environment  where the                                                               
milk is harvested, and where  the animal lives, can contribute to                                                               
pathogens  being transferred  into the  milk.   He said  national                                                               
studies  have found  12 percent  of milk  collected from  Grade A                                                               
dairies and  raw milk dairies  contain pathogenic bacteria.   The

and monitors  the transfer  of milk to  the processing  plant; if                                                               
the  raw milk  has  a  higher bacterial  count  the  milk is  not                                                               
processed.  In addition, the state  lab tests for the presence of                                                               
adulterants such as antibiotics.
