  HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION NO. 9                                                 
                                                                               
       Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the State                 
       of Alaska prohibiting the imposition of  state personal                 
       income  taxation, state  ad  valorem  taxation on  real                 
       property, or  state retail sales  taxation without  the                 
       approval of the voters of the state.                                    
                                                                               
  Representative  Martin  MOVED  to  RESCIND  the  Committee's                 
  action in failing to pass HJR 9 from committee.  There being                 
  NO OBJECTION, it was so ordered.                                             
                                                                               
  Representative Martin MOVED to report HJR 9 out of Committee                 
  with individual  recommendations and  with the  accompanying                 
  fiscal note.  Representative Foster OBJECTED.                                
                                                                               
  Representative   Foster  felt   that  the   powers   of  the                 
  legislature would be  weakened by HJR  9.  He stressed  that                 
  there would be a time delay  between fiscal crisis and voter                 
  approval which would magnify fiscal difficulties.                            
                                                                               
  A roll call vote was taken on the motion to move  HJR 9 from                 
  committee.                                                                   
                                                                               
  IN FAVOR: Hanley,  Martin,  Parnell,   Therriault,  MacLean,                 
                 Larson                                                        
  OPPOSED:  Foster                                                             
                                                                               
  The MOTION PASSED (6-1).
