Number 2456                                                                    
                                                                               
CHAIRMAN GREEN announced the committee would briefly take up HB
273, "An Act relating to notification of the public concerning sex             
offenders."  He noted that the sponsor wasn't present.  He then                
called on Shirley Marshall, requesting that she send or fax any                
written testimony.                                                             
                                                                               
TAPE 98-16, SIDE B                                                             
Number 0006                                                                    
                                                                               
SHIRLEY MARSHALL testified via teleconference from Tok, specifying             
that she was representing herself, her children, family members and            
members of the Tok community.  She suggested adding to HB 252 that             
"any health care facility be notified, and that in that health care            
facility, if a convicted sex offender is employed or volunteering              
there, that pictures of a convicted sex offender be posted so the              
community has their own choice whether they go to that facility for            
their medical care or not."                                                    
                                                                               
MS. MARSHALL further asked that the emergency medical service                  
licensing board reconsider letting a licensed emergency medical                
technician (EMT) hold a license if that person is a convicted sex              
offender.  She offered to answer questions.                                    
                                                                               
Number 0056                                                                    
                                                                               
CHAIRMAN GREEN thanked Ms. Marshall and advised her that she could             
fax information to (907) 465-4316.  He asked Representative Masek,             
sponsor, who had just arrived, whether she or her aide wished to               
make a statement; Representative Masek said she would wait.                    
Chairman Green then advised Representative Masek that they had                 
taken testimony from someone on teleconference but would consider              
the bill another day.  [HB 273 was held over.]
