  SUMMARY INFORMATION                                                          
                                                                               
 Before the committee was a draft FCCS SB 6, as well as a proposed             
 amendment which would limit the amount fined for a traffic offense            
 by a municipality to no more than the fine in the bail schedule               
 established by the supreme court for the same traffic offense.                
 Juanita Hensley, Chief of Driver Services, Department of Public               
 Safety, was present and responded to questions from committee                 
 members on the proposed amendment.  The amendment reads as follows:           
                                                                               
 Section 3, page 2, line 22:  After "law." insert a new subsection             
 to read:                                                                      
                                                                               
  (3)  issue a citation for a traffic offense if the fine                      
 imposed for the municipal traffic offense is more than the fine               
 imposed for the same traffic offense under the bail schedule                  
 established by the supreme court under AS 28.05.151(a).                       
 Senator Ellis moved adoption of the amendment.  Representative                
 Bunde objected and then removed his objection.  There being no                
 further objections, the amendment was adopted.                                
                                                                               
 Senator Rieger moved that FCCS SB 6, as amended, be passed out of             
 committee.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                          
                                                                               
 The meeting was adjourned at 4:37 p.m.
