ACTION NARRATIVE TAPE 01-15, SIDE A Number 0001 CHAIR PETE KOTT called the House Rules Standing Committee meeting to order at 9:06 a.m. Representatives Kott, Porter, Kohring, and Joule were present at the call to order. SB 151-BRISTOL BAY SALMON CLASSIC CHAIR KOTT announced that the only order of business before the committee would be SENATE BILL NO. 151, "An Act relating to the Bristol Bay Salmon Classic; and providing for an effective date." Number 0044 TIM GRUSSENDORF, Staff to Senator Hoffman, Alaska State Legislature, testified on behalf of the sponsor of SB 151. This bill simply adds the Bristol Bay Salmon Classic to existing statutes regarding salmon classics. He informed the committee that the Bristol Bay Native Association thought that a salmon classic would be another way to offer more scholarships to children in the district. He explained that this classic would have people guess how many salmon are commercially harvested from the five major rivers in Bristol Bay. CHAIR KOTT, in response to Representative Joule, explained that SB 151 is being heard because it has to have one hearing in the House. There being no questions, the public testimony was closed. Number 0128 REPRESENTATIVE KOHRING inquired as to the amount of money that would be raised from this activity. MR. GRUSSENDORF informed everyone that a committee is being put together. At this point, the price of the tickets haven't even been determined. However, there will be no administrative fees to the corporation that runs the classic. Mr. Grussendorf said that the current thought is to mirror the Nenana Ice Classic. In further response to Representative Kohring, Mr. Grussendorf specified that the money raised will be used for college scholarships. REPRESENTATIVE KOHRING remarked that it is interesting that such [events] would require authorization from the legislature. Although he realized that state statute requires the legislature's authorization, he felt that it would be more appropriate to do this based on a local decision. In conclusion, Representative Kohring said that he believes it's great that this money is being raised locally versus coming to the government for funding. Number 0242 REPRESENTATIVE JOULE moved to report SB 151 out of committee with individual recommendations and the accompanying zero fiscal note. There being no objection, SB 151 was reported from the House Rules Standing Committee. ADJOURNMENT There being no further business before the committee, the House Rules Standing Committee meeting was adjourned at 9:11 a.m.
