  HB 30:  HUMAN SERVICES MATCHING GRANTS                                       
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN OLBERG reconvened the meeting at 2:21 p.m. with all                 
  members except Representative Williams present and took up                   
  HB 30.                                                                       
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE TOM BRICE, PRIME SPONSOR of HB 30, stated the                 
  bill had been introduced to facilitate eligibility of Human                  
  Services Community Grants by the Fairbanks North Star                        
  Borough in lieu of the City of Fairbanks.   He said, "The CS                 
  has an added section which would basically disallow 'double-                 
  dipping' of funds.  So in other words, the City of Fairbanks                 
  could not participate in the program at the same time as the                 
  Fairbanks North Star Borough."                                               
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE DAVIES moved that the committee adopt the CS                  
  provided by the sponsor.  There being no objections, CS HB
  30 was ADOPTED.                                                              
                                                                               
  Number 422                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE DAVIES gave his support for CS HB 30 and                      
  expounded on his experience as a North Star Borough                          
  assemblyman.                                                                 
                                                                               
  (Representative Williams rejoined the committee at 2:27                      
  p.m.)                                                                        
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE TOOHEY asked about the effect of CS HB 30 on                  
  the City of Fairbanks.                                                       
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE BRICE said the Fairbanks and North Pole City                  
  Councils passed resolutions in support of HB 30.                             
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE BUNDE asked if the North Star Borough was                     
  more willing to provide social services than the City of                     
  Fairbanks.                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE BRICE replied in the affirmative and added,                   
  "The services provided by City non-profits are area-wide and                 
  borough-wide so it's probably more appropriate that the                      
  borough be the entity administering the grants."                             
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE DAVIES moved that CS HB 30 be moved out of                    
  committee with individual recommendations.  Without                          
  objections, IT WAS SO MOVED.                                                 
                                                                               
  ADJOURNMENT                                                                  
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN OLBERG adjourned the meeting at 2:29 p.m.
