  CHAIRMAN JACKO brought HB 120 (JURY LIST PREPARATION) before

  SENATOR RIEGER moved and asked unanimous consent that HB 120                 
  be  approved  for  calendaring  at the  Chair's  discretion.

  CHAIRMAN JACKO brought HB 152 (JURISDICTION OF  MAGISTRATES)                 
  before the committee.                                                        
                                                                               
  SENATOR RIEGER moved and asked unanimous consent that HB 120                 
  be  approved for  calendaring  at  the  Chair's  discretion.                 
  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                                     
  CHAIRMAN  JACKO   introduced  HJR   18  (ESTABLISH   FISHING                 
  COMMUNITY AT ADAK) as the next order of business.                            
                                                                               
  SENATOR LITTLE referred to page 1, line 11, and asked for an                 
  explanation of  the phrase "state  of the art  model fishing                 
  community  on  Adak   Island."   REPRESENTATIVE  CARL MOSES,                 
  prime  sponsor  of  HJR  18,  said it  just  emphasizes  the                 
  opportunity to vacate  the island altogether, which  he said                 
  is  a possibility.  Right now, it  is planned to reduce Navy                 
  personnel on the  base by approximately  50 percent by  July                 
  1994.                                                                        
                                                                               
  SENATOR RIEGER moved and asked unanimous consent that HJR 18                 
  be  approved  for  calendaring  at  the  Chair's discretion.                 
  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                                     
  CHAIRMAN  JACKO  brought  SB 174  (EXEMPT  CAB  DRIVERS FROM                 
  EMPLOYMENT LAWS) before  the committee as the final order of                 
  business.                                                                    
                                                                               
  SENATOR RIEGER moved and asked unanimous consent that SB 174                 
  be approved  for  calendaring  at  the  Chair's  discretion.                 
  SENATOR LITTLE objected.   A  voice vote was  taken and  the                 
  Chair stated the motion had failed.                                          
  There  being  no   further  business  to  come   before  the                 
  committee, the meeting was adjourned at 1:37 p.m.
