  Number 605                                                                   
                                                                               
  HB 183 - TRANSPORTATION CORRIDOR: FAIRBANKS-NOME                             
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES presented HB 183.                                       
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE HUDSON asked if the Russians had expressed                    
  interest and was assured they had.                                           
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JOE GREEN added that in addition to its many                  
  other benefits, a railroad was nonpolluting.                                 
                                                                               
  Number 688                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIR MACLEAN stated she and most Native groups would find                   
  the bill easier to accept if "road" was taken out of the                     
  title and the bill was limited to "railroads".                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES said she was agreeable to such an                       
  amendment.  CHAIR MACLEAN said she would offer this                          
  amendment in Finance.                                                        
                                                                               
  TAPE 94-07, SIDE B                                                           
  Number 000                                                                   
                                                                               
  REPRESENTATIVE JAMES reiterated that the Department of                       
  Transportation had requested that "road" be included in the                  
  bill, and she would not mind having it taken out.                            
                                                                               
  Number 040                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIR MACLEAN said the Task Force would endorse HB 183 with                  
  the amendment to take "road" out of the title.
