  CHAIRMAN JACKO  brought CSHB 279(L&C) (EXTEND  ALASKA PUBLIC                 
  UTILITIES COMMISSION)  before the committee  and opened  the                 
  public hearing on the legislation.                                           
                                                                               
                                                                               
  JOSH FINK, staff to the Senate Labor and Commerce Committee,                 
  said  that  committee  had  introduced   SB  87,  which  was                 
  companion legislation to HB 279.                                             
                                                                               
                                                                               
  The legislation will extend the  Alaska Public Utilities for                 
  one  year  to June  1994.   The  rationale for  the one-year                 
  extension  is  to  give the  legislature  an  opportunity to                 
  review  the Legislative Budget and  Audit report on the APUC                 
  which was released in mid-March.

  279(L&C)  be  passed   out  of  committee  with   individual

  SENATOR HALFORD moved and asked  unanimous consent that CSHB
  279(L&C)  be   approved  for  calendaring   at  the  Chair's

  objection, it was so ordered.                                                
  SENATOR  LITTLE moved and asked  unanimous consent that SB 7                 
  (DEBT  REIMBURSEMENT/MAINTENANCE  GRANTS)  be  approved  for                 
  calendaring   at  the  Chair's   discretion.     Hearing  no                 
  objection, it was so ordered.                                                
  There  being  no  further  businesss   to  come  before  the
