The following fiscal note(s) apply: 1. Fiscal, Office of the Governor/All Depts. The Governor's transmittal letter dated January 20, 2005, follows: "Dear Speaker Harris: Under the authority of art. III, sec. 18, of the Alaska Constitution, I am transmitting a bill relating to the compensation of certain public officials, officers, and employees not covered by collective bargaining agreements. This bill would revise the salary schedule for certain state officials, officers, and employees who are not covered by collective bargaining agreements to bring those salaries into line with employees in the supervisory bargaining unit. Additionally, this bill would provide for a two percent increase in fiscal years 2006 and 2007, to parallel the offer the state extended to bargaining units with similarly situated employees. This proposal would cover employees in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of state government who are not covered by a collective bargaining agreement. I urge your prompt and favorable action on this measure. Sincerely yours, /s/ Frank H. Murkowski Governor"
