 CO-CHAIRMAN BILL HUDSON said it is an excellent resolution that               
 speaks to not only Alaska's interests but those of the entire West            
 Coast as well.

 individual recommendations.  He asked unanimous consent.                      
 CO-CHAIRMAN OGAN asked if there was any objection.  He commended              
 committee aide Hans Neidig for his work on HJR 39; because of the

 committees he has worked with on resources; he cited the diversity            
 of the committee as an asset.  He said he was looking forward to              
 streamlining legislation over the summer to try to help develop               
 resources economically while protecting the environment.  He

 committee assistants he has ever had.
