ACTION NARRATIVE 9:03:36 AM CHAIR ROGER HOLLAND called the Senate Education Standing Committee meeting to order at 9:03 a.m. Present at the call to order were Senators Hughes, Begich, and Chair Holland. 9:04:29 AM At ease SB 10-FREE/REDUCED TUITION FOR ESSENTIAL WORKER 9:05:30 AM CHAIR HOLLAND announced the consideration of SENATE BILL NO. 10 "An Act establishing a grant program to provide to essential workers the tuition and fees to attend a state-supported postsecondary educational institution." He noted there was a committee substitute for SB 10. He asked for a motion. 9:05:42 AM SENATOR HUGHES moved to adopt the proposed committee substitute (CS) for SB 10, work order 32-LS0127\G, as the working document. 9:05:58 AM CHAIR HOLLAND objected for purposes of discussion. 9:06:08 AM ED KING, Staff, Senator Roger Holland, Alaska State Legislature, Juneau, Alaska, explained the changes in the committee substitute for SB 10: Change #1: On page 1, line 8 of version A, the word "undergraduate" is deleted to account for trade school students. Graduate school is still disallowed by subsection (a) paragraph (8). MR. KING said change #2 is a substantial change that expands the eligible pool to include anyone who was laid off due to the pandemic. Change #2: Subsection (a) paragraph (2) is adjusted to allow any worker that was laid off to be eligible for a grant. Version A: (2) was employed as an essential worker in the state when the federal government declared a public health emergency on January 31, 2020, and (A) maintains employment as an essential worker for the duration of the public health emergency; or (B) was temporarily or permanently laid off; Version G: (2) was, (A) employed as an essential worker in the state when the federal government declared a public health emergency on January 31, 2020; or (B) temporarily or permanently laid off in the state as a direct consequence of the public health emergency declared by the federal government on January 31, 2020; MR. KING deferred to the sponsor to speak to change #3. SENATOR BEGICH asked his staff to explain the change #3. 9:07:49 AM At ease 9:08:09 AM LOKI TOBIN, Staff, Senator Tom Begich, Alaska State Legislature, Juneau, Alaska, said that this change disqualifies someone from receiving additional funding once the person has completed a program. Change #3: Inserts a paragraph (4) under subsection (b), which disqualifies a student from additional funding once they complete the curriculum, degree, or program for which they received a grant for the previous term. SENATOR BEGICH added that someone cannot use four years to get two different degrees. It is only for one degree. One opportunity, essentially. MR. KING said that change #4 changes the definition of essential workers. Instead of being an enumerated list, the definition will be developed as described below. Change #4: A new subsection is added under section 1 (subsection (e) of version G), which directs the commission on Postsecondary Education to consult with HSS and use the Alaska Essential Services and Critical Workforce Infrastructure Order to define an "essential worker." The definition of "essential worker" in version A (on page 3, lines 6-17) was deleted. Change #5: The words "or private" are deleted from the definitions of "half-time" and "full-time" student (page 3, lines 22 and 26 of version A), as only state-supported institutions are authorized by this bill (page 1, line 8). Change #6: Changes to a hard repeal date of December 31, 2025 (previously set to expire at the end of the federal declaration). 9:10:08 AM CHAIR HOLLAND removed his objection. There being no further objection, version G was before the committee. SENATOR HUGHES pointed out with that with the student loan program, a student could use those funds for a private institution. She asked why that is not allowed for this program. SENATOR BEGICH said that the primary reason is that the student loan program is a loan program. Loans are paid back. They are not public money to subsidize private institutions. This is a grant program. It would violate the constitution to provide the money with no element to pay it back. His office had to limit it because of the difference between a loan and grant. His office intended to apply it to all institutions but was told explicitly by Legislative Legal that that could not be included. SENATOR HUGHES said that does make sense. She does have a problem with the bill. The sponsor's intent is noble. She is grateful that now someone who was not an essential worker but became unemployed during the public health emergency is now eligible. She still has a problem with those essential workers who worked the entire time during the declaration period vs. the restaurant worker who did not get laid off. The essential workers are eligible for the grant and the restaurant workers who could pull themselves up to a better state are not eligible for this. She still finds a problem with that. SENATOR BEGICH said that his office made an error about the report date on line 11 on page four. It should read December 31, 2026. Otherwise, the report will be produced the day after the grant program ends. There must be time to calculate things like whether people completed their degrees. 9:14:43 AM At ease 9:14:51 AM CHAIR HOLLAND solicited a motion 9:15:27 AM SENATOR BEGICH offered a conceptual amendment to line 11 on page 4 of version G, delete "January 1, 2025" and replace it with "December 31, 2026." 9:15:48 AM There being no objection, the conceptual amendment was adopted. SENATOR BEGICH thanked the chair for hearing the bill. SENATOR HUGHES asked that since the committee substitute allows someone who was unemployed, temporarily or permanently laid off, who was not an essential worker to participate, should the bill title be adjusted in the next committee of referral. She loves critical workers, but everyone is critical and essential. She would be more apt to vote for the bill if Section A were removed. Someone who was employed the whole time vs. someone who was also employed the whole time but low paid should also be eligible. Emphasizing those who were laid off and were hit hard makes sense, but also rewarding those who are critical workers but didn't take the kind of hit others took is a problem for her. She will be marking to amend to take out Section A on the bottom of page 1. CHAIR HOLLAND asked if Sana Efird had any comments. 9:18:00 AM SANA EFIRD, Executive Director, Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Education, Juneau, Alaska, said that she was available for questions about the fiscal note. 9:18:42 AM CHAIR HOLLAND solicited a motion. 9:18:56 AM SENATOR HUGHES moved to report the proposed committee substitute (CS) for SB 10, work order 32-LS0127\G, as amended from the committee with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s). There being no objection, CSSB (10) EDC as amended was reported from the Senate Education Standing Committee 9:19:30 AM At ease SB 80-PUBLIC SCHOOLS: MENTAL HEALTH EDUCATION 9:21:10 AM CHAIR HOLLAND announced the consideration of SB 80. He noted a committee substitute for SB 80. He solicited a motion. 9:21:24 AM SENATOR HUGHES moved to adopt the proposed committee substitute (CS) for SB 80, work order 32-LS0514\B, as the working document. 9:21:38 AM CHAIR HOLLAND objected for purposes of discussion. 9:21:46 AM ED KING, Staff, Senator Roger Holland, Alaska State Legislature, Juneau, Alaska, said the changes for the bill were recommended by the committee members at the least hearing. The first change is with the intent language. It removes the enumerated list of organizations and replaces it with the more generic phrasing, "the department of Health and Social Services, regional tribal health organizations, and representatives of national and state mental health organizations." MR. KING said that within AS 14.30.360(b), Section 3 of the bill, the added language was adjusted for clarity and consistency with the intent language, and to address the concern of developmentally appropriate curriculum: On page 2, line 7 of version A, the phrase "Health guidelines must provide standards for instruction in mental health" is changed to "Guidelines for instruction in mental health" to match the intent language. The words "developmentally appropriate" are also inserted. On page 2, line 9 of version A, the words "regional tribal health organizations" are inserted to match the intent language. SENATOR BEGICH said the bulk of the suggestions were made by staff to the Mental Health Board, the Suicide Prevention Council, and the Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention Council. 9:23:18 AM CHAIR HOLLAND removed his objection. There being no further objection, version B was before the committee. SENATOR HUGHES said that now the bill states that the Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) will be consulted about ensuring developmentally appropriate curriculum. The Department of Education and Early Development (DEED) is also involved by providing technical assistance. She hopes that DHSS is equipped to understand the development and the instruction of children. She is glad that DEED is still involved for knowing what is appropriate in a classroom setting as opposed to a clinical setting. She is hoping that DEED will be involved with technical assistance in what is developmentally appropriate. The way the language is written it falls on DHSS. She asked if anyone from DEED can speak to that. SENATOR BEGICH said that it is spoken to in the fiscal note, on page 2 in the last paragraph: "Transition language provides the State Board of Education and Early Development two years to develop mental health guidelines." DEED is the primary mover. DEED consults with DHSS. The consultation language was in the original bill as well. The lead on this, according to fiscal note SB080-EED-SSA-2-16-21, is DEED. SENATOR HUGHES said that is in the intent language, but in Section 3, the guidelines are with DHSS. She is confident that they will work together, but there is some disconnect because one is intent language and the other says DHSS will establish guidelines. MR. KING said that in Section 3 of the bill, the first sentence of that refers to the state board of DEED and it will work in consultation with DHSS and the other organizations. The transition language states that the DEED state board shall develop the mental health guidelines, so in the bill it does fall on DEED. SENATOR HUGHES said that is helpful and reassuring. It is good to get the discussion on the record so that it is clear that the committee is expressing the importance of both departments being involved. 9:27:43 AM CHAIR HOLLAND solicited a motion. 9:27:50 AM SENATOR HUGHES moved to report the proposed committee substitute (CS) for SB 10, work order 32-LS0514\B. There being no objection, CSSB 10 (EDC) was reported with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s)from the Senate Education Standing Committee. 9:28:11 AM At ease SB 6-RIP FOR PUBLIC EMPLOYEES/TEACHERS 9:29:45 AM CHAIR HOLLAND announced the consideration of SB 6. He noted that there was a committee substitute and solicited a motion. 9:30:07 AM SENATOR HUGHES moved to adopt the proposed committee substitute (CS) for SB 6, work order 32-LS0028\B, as the working document. 9:30:20 AM CHAIR HOLLAND objected for purposes of discussion. 9:30:24 AM ED KING, Staff, Senator Roger Holland, Alaska State Legislature, noted two changes in the committee substitute. Change #1: To address the concern regarding losing teachers in districts already facing teacher shortages, language was added to direct the commissioner of administration to deny an application by a teacher if doing so would create undue hardship for the school district. The change is in section 2, subsection (b), which appears on page 2, lines 14-15 of version B. Change #2: To acknowledge the fact that there may be financial benefits even in situations that do not result is a permanent reduction to positions, the last line of the intent language was deleted. MR. KING said Senator Micciche was concerned that allowing teachers to retire in school districts that already have recruitment and retention problems might be problematic, so language was added to attempt to address that. 9:31:26 AM CHAIR HOLLAND removed his objection. There being no further objection, version B was before the committee. He invited bill sponsor Senator Kawasaki to address the committee. SENATOR SCOTT KAWASAKI, SB 6 Sponsor, Alaska State Legislature, thanked the committee for bringing this bill forward. Retirement incentive programs have been used in '86, '89, and '96. A bill in 2004 did something similar to what this bill does. The cost savings are tremendous. In '86 the estimated savings was over $25 million just in year one. The legislative audit for the '89 retirement incentive program demonstrated $23 million [in savings], representing 1,700 employees. In '96, the fiscal note showed a $41 million savings in year one. This is a time to find savings and prevent layoffs. SB 6 does that. SENATOR HOLLAND invited John Holst, the Sitka superintendent, to testify. 9:33:40 AM JOHN HOLST, Superintendent, Sitka School District, Sitka, Alaska, said that he has read through the bill several times. It is similar to bills in the past, but it seems unduly complicated. Sitka is in the middle of doing a reduction and is offering a bonus of $10,000 that is not connected to the Teacher Retirement System (TRS). Four teachers are going to do that. It is a simple and straightforward thing for Sitka. The bill could allow for more local control if the legislators instructed TRS to count any bonuses as earned income. Right now, a bonus the district offers is outside of TRS and does not qualify as earned income. That one change would help Sitka immensely. People always want to know if a bonus will count for retirement. The bill's intention is wonderful. It is aimed at the right target. In the past these bills were related to a significant downturn in population, so the bills allowed removal of positions in an orderly fashion. The current situation is the need for pruning budgets and making reductions in positions. In most situations, the people taking the bonus will have to be replaced. Inside the bill, in at least once case, it says the position cannot be filled and must remain vacant. CHAIR HOLLAND clarified that Mr. Holst is invited testimony. 9:37:43 AM SENATOR BEGICH pointed out that the bill says the retirement incentive program is not mandated, it is a "may." Sitka has the wherewithal to go beyond this retirement program, so it is doing so. The bill is provided as a tool to give guidance to districts that cannot offer a substantial bonus. The bill will have no material effect on Sitka if he chooses not to enter this particular state retirement incentive program. Senator Begich quoted from the bill, "RETIREMENT INCENTIVE PROGRAM (a) An employer including a state agency, a political subdivision of the state, a public organization, and the University of Alaska may elect to adopt a retirement incentive program under this Act." That is the critical component. It is not designed to negatively impact the Sitka School District. It is designed to provide a tool for those districts that don't have the tax base or wherewithal of Sitka. There are "shall" retirement incentive programs that are dangerous for local jurisdictions that he would never support. This is not one of those. MR. HOLST said that he understands this is voluntary. Whenever teachers want to tack on three years to their service in order to retire and get a larger benefit, the pressure will be on the district to participate. If it is a year of negotiation with the teacher union, it will be on the table for discussion and may be part of the agreement. There are significant financial impacts on districts. The intent is wonderful, but it is unduly complicated and going to create problems for local districts. He understands it is a choice to participate, but the pressure will come from teachers and their unions to force districts to participate. SENATOR HUGHES asked if Sitka is already doing this, why is this bill needed if a district can choose to do it and structure it in a way that works for them. SENATOR KAWASAKI replied that for Sitka it seems to be a one- time only $10,000 payment to retire. Fairbanks has a $25 million deficit for next year and is talking about 200 layoffs in the system, from custodial staff to certified teachers. Fairbanks does not have the cash to pay for an incentive to retire. SENATOR HUGHES asked if this were to become law, could the Sitka superintendent continue to do things as he is doing or would he have to do it in the way structured in the bill. SENATOR KAWASAKI answered that nothing prevents a school district to offer sign on or retirement incentives. This codifies a retirement incentive program for school districts, the university, and state service, everyone in the TRS or PERS (Public Employee Retirement System). SENATOR HUGHES said either last year or the year before, Senator Micciche had a bill to rehire retired teachers. She asked how that would mesh with this bill. In areas of the state it is very difficult to replace someone who is retiring. This bill has a two-year wait. She asked if Senator Micciche's bill had a two- year wait period. SENATOR KAWASAKI responded that the retiree rehire bill, which was SB 185, passed the Senate 19-1. Its conditions are different from SB 6. To reemploy educators, they have to be retired for at least six months if they are 62 or younger. If older than 62, they have to wait for 60 days. If people want to retire with the retirement incentive program in SB 6, they would be under a different part of law than under the retire rehire system. 9:45:02 AM JOE HAYES, Staff, Senator Kawasaki, Alaska State Legislature, said that with SB 6 the district can bring educators back under contract or as substitute teachers but they cannot come back under TRS. SENATOR HUGHES said that under Senator Micciche's bill they are also not coming back under TRS. There are different waiting periods. Under the regular retirement system, they can wait six months but under the retirement incentive program they wait two years. She asked why they are different. She asked if it would make more sense with a shortage to bring the early retired teachers back sooner than in two years. SENATOR KAWASAKI said that school districts will be required to pay 12.56 percent of base salary to TRS if a person does come back in the retire rehire system. Under Senator Micciche's bill they will have to come back to TRS. CHAIR HOLLAND noted that the next committee for the bill is Labor and Commerce and then Finance. The committee has resolved the education aspect of the bill. There will be time for additional discussion. SENATOR HUGHES said that because of the teacher shortage, she would ask that the sponsor entertain the idea of shortening the waiting period for teachers. Especially in rural communities, it may make sense to bring retired educators back in a steady position. The problem is not going to go away. It will get worse. 9:47:56 AM CHAIR HOLLAND opened public testimony, ascertained there was none, and closed public testimony. He solicited a motion. 9:48:22 AM SENATOR HUGHES moved to report the proposed committee substitute (CS) for SB 6, work order 32-LS0028\B, from committee with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s). There being no objection, CSSB 6 (EDC) was reported from the Senate Education Standing Committee. 9:49:07 AM There being no further business to come before the committee, Chair Holland adjourned the Senate Education Standing Committee at 9:49 a.m.
