BY REQUEST OF THE GOVERNOR, entitled:

Governor's transmittal letter dated January 23:                                                     
Dear President Therriault:                                                                          
AS 37.07.020 required that I submit a budget for the 2004 fiscal year                               
to the Legislature and the public on December 15 of last year. That                                 
law also requires that "bills identical in content" to those I released in                          
December be delivered to the Legislature by the fourth legislative day.                             
The bills delivered today contain the Fiscal Year 2003 operating                                    
budget as appropriated by the last Legislature and signed into law by                               
the previous Governor. Again, they provide a useful point of reference                              
for your budget discussions.
