  The Senate Rules Committee was  called to order by  Chairman                 
  Jacko  at  11:40 a.m.   He  introduced  HJR 24  am (MILITARY                 
  HOUSING  SHORTAGE)  as  the only  order  of  business.   The                 
  legislation had been passed out  of the Senate State Affairs                 
  Committee with a committee substitute attached.                              
                                                                               
  SENATOR RIEGER  offered the  following amendment  #1 to  SCS                 
  CSHJR 24 (STATE AFFAIRS):                                                    
                                                                               
  AMENDMENT #1                                                                 
                                                                               
  Page 1, line 1 in the title delete:  "the shortage of"                       
                                                                               
  Page 2,  line 7:   After  "WHEREAS" insert:     "it is  good                 
  public policy and it  is important to the economy  of Alaska                 
  to ensure that"                                                              
                                                                               
                                                                               
  Page 2, line 7:  Delete "a shortage of"                                      
                                                                               
  Page 2, lines 11 and 12:  Delete all material                                
                                                                               
  Page 2, line 19:  Delete the first "the" and insert "any"                    
                                                                               
  Senator Rieger said the purpose of  the amendment is so that                 
  the resolution speaks  more specifically  to the support  of                 
  Alaska  for the  provision of  housing in  proximity  to the                 
  military bases.                                                              
                                                                               
  Number 050                                                                   
                                                                               
  SENATOR ZHAROFF referred to the  phrase "good public policy"                 
  and asked if it  meant that if the military  doesn't provide                 
  the  housing,  then the  state, since  it  views it  as good                 
  public  policy, will work  to provide the  housing.  SENATOR                 
  RIEGER acknowledged that was correct.  SENATOR LITTLE stated                 
  she  would  be  more comfortable  with  deleting  the public                 
  policy  portion,  and that  the  resolution makes  the point                 
  without  placing  that  in the  amendment.    SENATOR RIEGER                 
  stated he had no objection to  deleting the phrase.  SENATOR                 
  JACKO  stated  the  phrase  "good  public policy"  would  be                 
  deleted from the amendment.                                                  
                                                                               
  There being no further discussion  on the amendment, SENATOR                 
  JACKO stated the amendment, as amended, was adopted.                         
                                                                               
  SENATOR  RIEGER  pointed  out  that  when the  amendment  is                 
  offered  on the  floor, the title  of the  resolution should                 
  also delete the reference to "the shortage."                                 
                                                                               
  Number 120                                                                   
                                                                               
  SENATOR HALFORD moved  and asked unanimous consent  that HJR
  24  am,  with  the attached  Rules  Committee  amendment, be                 
  approved for calendaring at the Chair's discretion.  Hearing                 
  no objection, it was so ordered.                                             
  As the  final order of  business SENATOR ZHAROFF  moved that                 
  the  Senate  Rules Committee  delegate  to its  chairman the                 
  authority to assign space  for use by the Senate  during the                 
  18th State Legislature.   Hearing  no objection, the  motion                 
  carried.                                                                     
                                                                               
  There  being  no   further  business  to  come   before  the                 
  committee, the meeting was adjourned at 11:47 a.m.
