LAURA  BONNER, SELF,  ANCHORAGE (via  teleconference), spoke                                                                    
in support  of HJR 15.  She thought that the  requirement of                                                                    
75 percent  of legislators was  too high. She  believed that                                                                    
the legislative body  was closer to the  people. She thought                                                                    
there  was language  in  place for  a  strong governor.  She                                                                    
advocated  for  a  balance  of  power.  She  agreed  with  a                                                                    
legislative veto  override of two-thirds percent.  She would                                                                    
be supportive of the measure if it made it on the ballot.

Co-Chair Johnston CLOSED Public Testimony.
