that the proposed  legislation would continue the  effort to make

components to  CSHB 152(MLV).   One component clarifies  that the                                                               
Alaska  adjutant general  (TAG) has  command and  control of  the

statutory  control   of  the  organized  militia,   the  proposed                                                               
legislation would clarify that the TAG  has command as well.   He

it does this  in several ways:  first it  establishes that as the                                                               
adjutant general  has control over the  Alaska organized militia,                                                               
she  also  has   command.    It  is  vital  that   she  have  the                                                               
responsibility and  the authority  to carry  out the  duties that                                                               
are envisioned in Title 26 and going forward.                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
MR. DOEHL, in response to the  question about what is driving the                                                               
proposed legislation,  referred to  the limited authority  of the                                                               
adjutant general to  place members of the  organized militia into                                                               
state active duty.  This  limitation was highlighted by a request                                                               
for forces  in a search  and rescue (SAR);  there was a  delay in                                                               
being able to  reach the governor; the delay was  not material in                                                               
this case;  however, when minutes  matter, it is important  to be                                                               
able to  quickly and  efficiently allow the  militia to  go forth                                                               
and do what they have volunteered  to do at the appropriate time.                                                               
Waiting  for  the succession  of  command  - for  the  lieutenant                                                               
governor to be  sworn in after a mass disaster  - could result in                                                               
unnecessary pain, suffering, and loss  of life of Alaskans.  When                                                               
the  militia is  needed immediately,  and there  is no  guarantee                                                               
that the governor can be  reached immediately, it is necessary to                                                               
have  a  mechanism  in  place to  address  that  situation  until                                                               
reestablishing communication.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
MR.  DOEHL relayed  that in  looking at  the Title  26 as  it now                                                               
exists, there  are areas that result  in excessive administrative                                                               
burden  on  the  governor's  office and  the  adjutant  general's                                                               
office for  sending information to  the governor.  An  example of                                                               
this  is a  retirement application.    As Title  26 currently  is                                                               
written,  the  adjutant  general  cannot approve  a  request  for                                                               
retirement;  it  must  go  to  the governor  for  approval.    By                                                               
comparison,  in   the  federal  government,  the   service  level                                                               
secretary  may approve  a  retirement;  every retirement  request                                                               
does not need to go to the President of the U.S. for approval.                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
MR. DOEHL said that provisions  of CSHB 152(MLV) would codify the                                                               
regulation  authority  of  the   adjutant  general  for  internal                                                               
matters  within the  Alaska organized  militia to  make sure  the                                                               
force is effective, relevant, and  capable of doing what it needs                                                               
to do.   It would codify the role of  ASDF and assistant adjutant                                                               
generals.   He added that,  in short, it  would bring Title  26 a

JOHN  JAMES,  Colonel,  Commander,  Alaska  State  Defense  Force                                                               
(ASDF),  testified that  the  proposed  legislation would  reduce

responsibilities of  the adjutant  general to  the governor.   It                                                               
clarifies   the    adjutant   general's    responsibilities   for

The commander-in-chief  of ASDF is  the governor of  Alaska; ASDF

for by  the state; and ASDF  members are trained and  equipped by                                                               
the  state.     The  proposed  legislation   would  increase  the

superior and (indisc.)  correct military manner, and  in doing so                                                               
it  would  strengthen the  entire  Alaska  organized militia  and

REPRESENTATIVE  BIRCH  relayed that  he  received  a letter  from

concerns  with  the  proposed  legislation.     He  reminded  the                                                               
committee of the  time in the early 80s when  former President of                                                               
the  U.S.  Ronald  Reagan  was  shot;  then  Secretary  of  State                                                               
Alexander  Haig said,  "Well, I'm  in charge."   He  relayed that

knew that Mr. Haig was not in  charge.  When the President of the

the U.S.   Representative Birch  stated that he is  troubled with                                                               
the adjutant  general having independent authority  when civilian                                                               
authority is unavailable.   He asked, "What's so  urgent that ...                                                               
we can't get a call from  our civilian authority to have that ...

Alaska would want its governor's authority circumvented.

REPRESENTATIVE  TUCK replied  that from  the adjutant  general on                                                               
down,  there  is   a  hierarchy  of  authority.     The  proposed                                                               
legislation  is  not  intended  to negate  the  position  of  the                                                               
lieutenant governor, but to provide  for a quick response - "when                                                               
a soldier's  down or  the ranking  officer is  down" the  next in

MR. DOEHL responded  by saying that Mr.  Wood's interpretation of                                                               
the  proposed legislation  is inconsistent  with the  language in                                                               
CSHB 152(MLV).   He  stated that  there would  be no  granting of

disruptive event.  Mr. Doehl  explained that this would not allow                                                               
someone to  say, "I  am in  charge" and  impose martial  law; the

ASDF from  being used for security  or law enforcement.   He said                                                               
that  when minutes  matter,  such as  during  an earthquake  like                                                               
Alaska's  Good  Friday  earthquake,   it  would  allow  immediate

an  earthquake   or  other  mass   disaster,  and   the  proposed                                                               
legislation  would  allow  the   militia  to  provide  first  aid

reiterated that  it would not be  a blanket waiver for  all sorts

until the adjutant reestablishes  communication with the governor                                                               
or  his/her  successor   to  confirm  an  ongoing   intent.    He                                                               
emphasized,  "Where  minutes  matter,  this  allows  us  to  save

would be necessary if [CSHB 126] passed.

LIEUTENANT  COLONEL  WEAVER  answered that  the  authority  under
