  The Senate Rules  Committee was called to  order by Chairman                 
  Jacko at 4:04 p.m.                                                           
  CHAIRMAN  JACKO  introduced  SB  87  (EXTEND  ALASKA  PUBLIC

  be  approved  for  calendaring at  the  Chair's  discretion.

  106 (END AEA  & TRANSFER PROGRAMS/OK INTERTIES)  be approved                 
  for  calendaring  at  the Chair's  discretion.    Hearing no                 
  objection, it was so ordered.                                                
  SENATOR RIEGER moved and asked unanimous consent that SB 129                 
  (POWERS  OF  CHIEF  PROCUREMENT  OFFICER)  be  approved  for                 
  calendaring  at   the  Chair's   discretion.    Hearing   no                 
  objection, it was so ordered.                                                
  CHAIRMAN JACKO introduced  SB 126 (APPROP: POWER  PROGRAMS &                 
  INTERTIES) as the next order of business and noted there was                 
  a Rules CS before the committee for its consideration.                       
                                                                               
  CAN TOOHEY, staff to Senator  Bert Sharp, explained that the                 
  committee substitute corrects a mistake  made in the Finance                 
  CS which names the  recipient of funds as the  Alaska Energy                 
  Revolving  fund  when  it should  be  considered  the Energy                 
                                                                               
                                                                               
  Authority revolving fund.  He added the technical change was                 
  the only change made in the Rules CS.                                        
                                                                               
  SENATOR HALFORD moved and asked  unanimous consent that CSSB
  126(RLS)  be  adopted.   Hearing  no  objection,  the motion                 
  carried.                                                                     
                                                                               
  SENATOR HALFORD moved and asked  unanimous consent that CSSB
  126(RLS)   be  approved  for   calendaring  at  the  Chair's                 
  discretion.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                        
  CHAIRMAN  JACKO  introduced SB  45  (MISC. LAWS  RELATING TO                 
  MINORS) as the next order of business and directed attention                 
  to a proposed Rules CS.                                                      
                                                                               
  JERRY BURNETT,  staff to  Senator Randy  Phillips, explained                 
  that the Rules CS corrects  an error made in the Finance  CS                 
  on page 7, line 9.  The Rules CS changes "legal guardian" to                 
  "legal  custodian"  to make  it  conform  with the  rest  of                 
  Section 14.                                                                  
                                                                               
  SENATOR LITTLE  stated that she  has many objections  to the                 
  legislation and would be voting not to calendar it.                          
                                                                               
  SENATOR HALFORD moved and asked  unanimous consent that CSSB
  45(RLS)  be  adopted.    Hearing  no objection,  the  motion                 
  carried.                                                                     
                                                                               
  SENATOR HALFORD moved and asked  unanimous consent that CSSB
  45(RLS)  be   approved  for   calendaring  at   the  Chair's                 
  discretion.   SENATOR LITTLE objected.   The roll  was taken                 
  with the  following result:   Senators  Rieger, Halford  and                 
  Jacko voted "Yea" and Senator Little voted "Nay."  The Chair                 
  stated the motion had carried.                                               
  CHAIRMAN JACKO  introduced SB 163 (POWER  COST EQUALIZATION)                 
  as the final order of business.
