was changed  in Version I  to proposed AS 13.26.324;  this change                                                               
reflects the  fact that a  section 325  has already been  used in

addresses a  concern that as  originally written,  subsection (h)                                                               
raised  Fourth Amendment  issues;  that when  subsection (h)  was

that the term,  "attorney-in-fact" as used in AS  47.24 refers to

MS.  MUNSON  noted  that  the  aforementioned  conforming  change

MS. MUNSON went on to  explain that proposed AS 47.24.900(2)(A) -                                                               
which defines the word, "abuse" in  terms of an action taken with

culpable  mental state  of "knowing".   Proposed  AS 47.24.900(4)                                                               
now uses the term, "includes",  rather than the term, "means", in                                                       
its  definition of  the term,  "informed  decision"; this  change

REPRESENTATIVE LYNN  questioned whether  the bill -  for purposes

MS.  MUNSON offered  her  understanding that  the  bill does  not                                                               
specifically address that issue,  but ventured that arranging for                                                               
an interpreter would be part  of the protective services that the

one  would  consider a  vulnerable  adult  to have  consented  to                                                               
something that he/she didn't understand.                                                                                        
MS. MUNSON  went on to  explain that proposed  AS 47.24.900(7)(B)                                                               
now also  includes the  term, "fraud," in  its definition  of the

She noted that  in order to avoid using  circular logic, proposed                                                               
AS 13.24.324(3)'s  aspect of the  term, "fraud"  was specifically                                                               
not included  in the definition of  that term as it's  being used                                                               
in  proposed  AS  47.24.900(7)(B)  to  partly  define  the  term,                                                               
"exploitation".   Proposed 47.24.900(9) - which  defines the term                                                               
"neglect"  -  now also  includes  the  culpable mental  state  of

essential  care   and  essential   services  aren't   only  food,

after that  rule's existing  second sentence:   "The  court shall                                                           
consider the  circumstances of the victim,  particularly a victim

These two direct court rule  changes, she indicated, would ensure

(g)(2)'s  definition  of  "older  Alaskan",  explained  that  his                                                               
office first  ascertains whether an  elderly person who  has been                                                               
victimized  has  established  actual   residency  in  Alaska,  or                                                               
whether he/she was victimized while  just visiting the state.  If                                                               
the  latter,  then his  office  still  attempts to  provide  what                                                               
assistance it  can, but doesn't  normally engage  in full-fledged                                                               
representation.   For example, his  office will provide  an older                                                               
visitor   who's  been   victimized  with   a  reference   to  law                                                               
enforcement, and will help him/her  get immediate assistance from                                                               
social service agencies if needed.   He mentioned that such cases                                                               
are rare, that  it's more common that an Alaska  resident who was                                                               
exploited while  living in  Alaska then moves  out of  state, and                                                               
it's  his office's  policy  to then  finish  the [advocacy]  work                                                               
begun while  the victim was residing  in Alaska.  He  noted, too,                                                               
that because the statute uses  the term, "person" rather than the                                                               
term,  "citizen",  his  office would  provide  assistance  to  an                                                               
illegal alien residing in Alaska  who's been victimized, although                                                               
to date no such person has sought assistance from his office.                                                                   
MR. STERLING,  in response  to questions  regarding interpreters,                                                               
explained  that when  his office  gets a  client who  requires an                                                               
interpreter, his office  attempts to find a  pro bono interpreter                                                               
in order to better communicate with  that client, and has done so                                                               
in two  instances that he is  aware of.  He  is unaware, however,                                                               
of any specific statute, court  rule, or constitutional provision                                                               
that  requires   an  executive  branch   agency  to   provide  an

ethical obligations as an attorney, he  added, if he is unable to                                                               
find a  pro bono interpreter,  he would seek permission  from his                                                               
superiors to retain  one.  In response to a  further question, he                                                               
opined that in terms of  his office's operations and provision of

pretty well  with volunteer interpreters,  and relayed  should he

best to persuade his superiors to allow it.

MR. STERLING predicted  that it could prove very  difficult for a

VICE CHAIR  THOMPSON questioned whether proposed  AS 13.26.209(f)                                                               
ought to be amended such that  the protective order would have to

MR.  STERLING  surmised  that  such a  change  might  prove  more
