Alaska  State   Legislature,  presented  HB  378   on  behalf  of                                                               
Representative  Thomas, sponsor.    She relayed  that the  Alaska                                                               
Chilkat Bald  Eagle Preserve, located  along the  Haines Highway,                                                               
was created in 1982 to  protect the world's largest concentration                                                               
of bald eagles.  The preserve  is also home to several species of

preserve,  a 12-seat  advisory council  was created,  one of  the

However  the  Borough of  Haines  and  the  City of  Haines  have                                                               
consolidated, and  there is no longer  a mayor, thus the  seat is                                                               
vacant.  The proposed legislation  would designate that seat to a                                                               
member  of   the  [Haines]  Borough  Assembly   selected  by  the
