HB 192 - PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS                                                                                 
CHAIRMAN KOTT announced that the next order of business is House                                                                
Bill No. 192, "An Act relating to reciting the pledge of allegiance                                                             
by public school students."  He announced that the committee needed                                                             
to rescind its action in passing out HB 192, yesterday.  He                                                                     
explained that one of the amendments that the committee adopted was                                                             
a bit problematic.  He further explained, "That amendment ...                                                                   
basically says that the school district must notify all persons,                                                                
and that was the area dealing with those particular evaluations.                                                                
We didn't want someone who didn't participate to be negatively                                                                  
affected, because of their lack of participation."  The current                                                                 
language could be  construed to refer to every Alaskan, which he                                                                
didn't think was the intent.  Therefore, he suggested inserting one
