REPRESENTATIVE BOB  HERRON, Alaska State Legislature,  stated that                                                              
HB 185 was the  Title 4, [AS 04] rewrite, noting  a companion bill                                                              
was  in  the  other  body.    He  said  that  Title  04  regulates

out  these  laws.   These  statutes  haven't been  reviewed  since

was  time   for  a  review.     During  the  spring   2012,  sixty                                                              
stakeholders and  staff dedicated time to make  recommendations to                                                              
improve  the  structure,  organization,   the  policies,  and  the                                                              
implementation of  AS 04.   He listed stakeholders,  including the

enforcement,  public  safety,  education,  the court  system,  and                                                              
community outreach sectors.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HERRON  highlighted  two review  goals,  including                                                              
promoting  a  fair  business climate  and  protecting  health  and                                                              
public safety.   Further, the stakeholder wanted to  make Title 04                                                              
a  clear  and consistent  legal  framework  that  can be  used  by                                                              
licensees, the  ABC Board, and law  enforcement.  He  offered that                                                              
the  bill  consists  of a  comprehensive  packet  of  interrelated                                                              
proposals for revision.                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
5:10:08 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HERRON  agreed  the  report  would  make  a  stout                                                              
doorstop, but  this was the first  time all the  stakeholders have                                                              
looked at  how Title 4  can be improved.   He envisioned  that the                                                              
stakeholders will  look forward to  interim work and he  hoped the                                                              
legislature will pass this bill or the companion bill next year.                                                                
                                                                                                                                
5:10:59 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  JOSEPHSON  said   he  would  be  looking  for  the                                                              
consensus and real "buy in" for the bill.                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HERRON stated  his belief  that the  "buy in"  has                                                              
already happened.   He said he will continue to work  with all the                                                              
stakeholders,  noting the legislative  process brings  unusual and                                                              
unforeseen  circumstances and  influences.   He  offered that  the                                                              
stakeholders  will have  the tedious  job of  keeping the  package                                                              
together while still allowing for suggestions.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
5:12:23 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE JOSEPHSON  said that seemed to suggest  if the bill                                                              
passed as written everyone will be equally content.                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HERRON  thought  "equally  content" was  a  little                                                              
generous.   However, at this point  the bill essentially  been the                                                              
stakeholders'  product, but  now  it will  go  through the  public                                                              
process.                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR OLSON  offered his  belief that the  sponsor is  a consensus                                                              
builder.                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
5:13:20 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  LEDOUX   asked  whether  the  committee   will  be                                                              
hearing testimony  from stakeholders that it shouldn't  amend this                                                              
or that since it will destroy the consensus.                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HERRON  answered   that  everyone  recognizes  the                                                              
process.   He suggested it  will take "all  hands on deck"  to get                                                              
the bill  through the  process and the  stakeholders know  what to                                                              
expect.   He said that  Title 4 [AS  04] as currently  written has                                                              
become very  clumsy.   Although stakeholders  are committed,  they                                                              
recognize that  the legislative process  will bring out  undue and                                                              
unforeseen influences.                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
5:14:27 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE HUGHES  said she has  been involved in  the process                                                              
and  predicted that  it will  be a  delicate balance  to pass  the                                                              
bill.   She offered  her belief that  the stakeholders  agree this                                                              
process needs  to happen.   She said  she was glad  Representative                                                              
Herron is at the  helm with this bill since everyone  will need to                                                              
work together given  the significant compromise that  has happened                                                              
during the process  of creating the draft bill.   Everyone did not                                                              
get what  they wanted,  but worked to  achieve balance,  she said.                                                              
She said she  appreciated the chair bringing this  bill forward to                                                              
allow work to occur during the interim.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
[HB 185 was held over.]
