  SENATOR MILLER  called the  Resources  Committee meeting  to                 
  order at  3:50 p.m.  and asked  MR. GLENN  OLDS to join  the                 
  Committee for his confirmation hearing.                                      
                                                                               
  MR. OLDS said he had no speech prepared and he  would answer                 
  questions.  He  said Alaska Department of  Natural Resources                 
  is the  only  state that  has  a constitutional  mandate  to                 
                                                                               
                                                                               
  manage our  resources for  the good  of all  the people,  to                 
  maximize their use, development, and conservation.                           
                                                                               
  Number 40                                                                    
                                                                               
  SENATOR  LEMAN  asked  him if  he  knew  when  the issue  of                 
  exploration licensing would be presented to the legislature.                 
  MR.  OLDS  said  it  wasn't  in  the  form  appropriate  for                 
  legislative  initiative until the  Attorney General  and the                 
  Governor decide whether they  want to go forward with  it or                 
  not.                                                                         
                                                                               
  Number 108                                                                   
  SENATOR MILLER  thanked him  for attending  the meeting  and                 
  announced SB 104 STATE SHARE OF FEDERAL GAS ROYALTIES                        
  to be up for consideration.                                                  
                                                                               
  SENATOR PEARCE said  she had an  amendment, but since  there                 
  were others,  she thought it  best to move  the bill to  the                 
  Finance Committee and deal with them there.   SENATOR MILLER                 
  agreed.                                                                      
                                                                               
  SENATOR  PEARCE moved  to pass  SB 104  from committee  with                 
  individual recommendations.  There were no objections and it                 
  was so ordered.                                                              
  Number 148                                                                   
                                                                               
  SENATOR MILLER adjourned the meeting at 3:57 p.m.
