Co-Chair  MacKinnon asked  about  the "no  puffin" sign,  and                                                                   
referred  to the  stupidity of  criminals.  She thought  that                                                                   
using the  language in  question might  cause confusion,  and                                                                   
wondered if  there was other  language being used  that could

Mr. Kopp referred to page 4, line 18 of the bill:

Mr.  Kopp clarified  that line  18  was standard  prohibition

signage allowances was more universal in nature.                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair MacKinnon  asked if  anyone had testified  regarding

Mr.  Kopp  thought  the  "no puffin"  sign  was  a  piece  of

Co-Chair MacKinnon indicated that she understood.

Mr. Kopp continued  discussing proposed changes  to the bill.                                                                   
He appreciated that  the chair of the previous  committee had

the  sponsor  thought  was  appropriate.  He  continued  that                                                                   
there  was  a  preference  for going  back  to  the  original

Mr.  Kopp clarified  that  fish processors  were  short-based

Senator  Dunleavy asked  about a hypothetical  business  in a

Mr. Kopp  stated that  currently  an office  such as the  one                                                                   
Senator Dunleavy  mentioned would qualify as a  workplace and

Mr.  Kopp  indicated that  state  law  would apply  to  state
