 Number 025                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN JACKO recessed the meeting at 5:43 p.m., calling it                  
 called back to order at 5:45 p.m. for the purpose of                          
 considering an amendment to  HB 293  (EXTEND COUNCIL ON DOMESTIC              
 VIOLENCE), which was being proposed by Senator Little.                        
                                                                               
 SENATOR LITTLE said that an amendment made in the Finance SCS                 
 extends the renewal period past four years.  However, there                   
 is a provision in state law which prohibits that from                         
 happening, so it could only be extended for a period not to                   
 exceed four years.  She said it was her intention to propose                  
 an amendment so that it would comply with Alaska statute.                     
                                                                               
 SENATOR HALFORD moved that committee rescind its previous                     
 action in approving HB 293 for calendaring.  Hearing no                       
 objection the motion carried and HB 293 was back before the                   
 committee for consideration.                                                  
                                                                               
 Number 040                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR RIEGER pointed out that the bill states that the                      
 section referred to by Senator Little, Section 2, is exempt                   
 from AS 44.66.010(c), so the bill is in proper form.                          
                                                                               
 SENATOR LITTLE then asked why it was desirable to extend the                  
 Council for such a lengthy period of time.  SENATOR RIEGER                    
 explained that the reason for the amendment was to put the                    
 expiration date of the Council into an election year so that                  
 there would be actually two separate legislatures which would                 
 have the option of extending the sunset date.                                 
                                                                               
 SENATOR HALFORD moved and asked unanimous consent that HB 293                 
 be approved for calendaring at the Chair's discretion.                        
 Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.                                      
 CHAIRMAN JACKO recessed the committee at 5:48 p.m., calling

 approved for calendaring at the Chair's discretion.  Hearing                  
 no objection, it was so ordered.                                              
 SENATOR HALFORD moved and asked unanimous consent that

 ordered.

  SSHB 196  (STATE EMPLOYMENT VETERANS PREFERENCE) be approved                 
 for calendaring at the Chair's discretion.  Hearing no                        
 objection, it was so ordered.                                                 
 SENATOR HALFORD moved and asked unanimous consent that
