  HCR 25 - STATE INDUSTRIAL MATERIALS EXCHANGE                                 
                                                                               
  Number 015                                                                   
                                                                               
  REP. PETE KOTT, prime sponsor of HCR 25, stated that HCR 25                  
  asserts the importance of fully utilizing resources by                       
  encouraging industry to participate in a materials exchange                  
  within the state, and by asking the governor to proclaim a                   
  materials exchange month.  A materials exchange is an                        
  information network allowing companies to serve notice of                    
  the availability of surplus goods.  Arrangements can then be                 
  made between companies to transfer surpluses that would                      
  otherwise be placed in landfills.  He said BP and Arco have                  
  provided seed money for the project and it is being                          
  coordinated through the Department of Environmental                          
  Conservation's Pollution Prevention office.                                  
                                                                               
  REP. KOTT outlined the two changes from the original bill to                 
  the new committee substitute offered:                                        
                                                                               
  1) naming ARCO and BP as providing the seed money; and                       
                                                                               
  2) changing the month of the "Alaska Materials Exchange                      
  Month" from March to April.                                                  
                                                                               
  Number 086                                                                   
                                                                               
  CHAIRMAN HUDSON asked if there was any financial requirement                 
  by the state.                                                                
                                                                               
  REP. KOTT responded that there wasn't.                                       
                                                                               
  Number 095                                                                   
                                                                               
  REP. PORTER moved the adoption of the committee substitute.                  
  No objection was heard; it was so ordered.

  the Department of Environmental Conservation would oversee                   
  the program.
