Two of  the categories include  behaviors that impact  the person,

REPRESENTATIVE TARR  referred to  slide 5, entitled  "ACES Studies

ACE studies  conducted  in Alaska.   The first  is that  childhood                                                              
trauma is far  more common and far more expensive  than previously                                                              
realized.   She said  that the  finding that  childhood trauma  is                                                              
"more  common"  is something  of  great  concern.   Alaska  has  a

trauma.   She  referred  to the  category  "neglect," and  offered                                                              
that  the research  demonstrates  that  prolonged  neglect can  be                                                              
more damaging  than physical  and sexual abuse.   She  stated that                                                              
the  second  key  finding  was that  the  impact  of  this  trauma

She  emphasized  the  importance  of  this  in  dealing  with  the

REPRESENTATIVE  TARR stated that  when one  hears stories  about a                                                              
person getting into  trouble, he/she rarely hears  that the person                                                              
came from  a stable, loving home  with an upbringing  that offered                                                              
opportunity; more often  the person had a great  deal of childhood                                                              
trauma.    She  maintained  that  when  looking  at  these  issues                                                              
through the ACE  lens, instead of asking, Why did  you do that? or                                                              
placing  the  blame  for  the behavior  entirely  on  the  person,                                                              
whether  a  child or  adult,  ask,  What  happened  to you?    She                                                              
maintained that  many of  these behaviors are  the result  of "bad

protective  factors  include  a  stable, loving  home.    Children

REPRESENTATIVE  JOHNSON  responded  that  she  did  not  say  that

Supreme Court case  is that the legislature was  dissatisfied with

The 2017 [FCC]  resolution [Notice of Proposed  Rulemaking (NPRM)]                                                              
returned ISP  classification back to  Title I; therefore,  the FCC

REPRESENTATIVE   KNOPP   asked    why   the   FCC   returned   ISP

MR. GERRISH replied  that he believed the decision  was subject to                                                              
the opinion of the FCC chairman at the time.                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  KNOPP expressed  that he  does not understand  the                                                              
potential outcome  of the  repeal of net  neutrality.   He offered                                                              
his  understanding  that  with  the  repeal,  internet  speed  and

government mandates open and equal access to the internet.                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
MR. GERRISH agreed.

REPRESENTATIVE  LEDOUX cited  the sponsor  statement, which  read,                                                              
"The  FCC's decision  is  extremely  unpopular with  the  American                                                              
public.   A survey conducted by  the University of  Maryland found                                                              
that 83  percent of Americans  opposed repealing  net neutrality."                                                              
She asked  whether the  survey was a  "push poll"; she  questioned                                                              
whether  83 percent  of Americans  even know  what net  neutrality                                                              
is, let alone have an opinion on it.                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
MR.  GERRISH  answered   that  the  survey  is   included  in  the                                                              
committee  packet for  review.   He expressed  his belief  that it                                                              
was  not  a  push  poll;  the  breakdown  of  responses  by  party                                                              
affiliation revealed  that both Democrats and  Republicans support                                                              
net neutrality.                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE LEDOUX  pointed out that  the goal of  the proposed                                                              
resolution is  to have  the issue addressed  by the  U.S. Congress                                                              
under  the Congressional  Review Act.   She  suggested that  since                                                              
net neutrality  was repealed in  December 4, 2017,  and submission

be  done  within   60  days,  in  the  time  it   would  take  the

MR. GERRISH  expressed his  belief that the  60 days  begins after
