JAMES  ARMSTRONG,  Staff,  Representative  Bill  Stoltze,  Alaska                                                               
State Legislature, explained that  Version E corrects the initial                                                               
of Daniel  Sullivan, Mayor of  the Municipality of  Anchorage, to                                                               
the  correct  initial.    He  characterized HR  13  as  a  simple                                                               
legislation  that describes  the  history of  the Inspection  and                                                               
Management (IM) program  over the last 25 years.   The resolution                                                               
requests  that  the  Anchorage Assembly  rescind  its  action  in                                                               
having  the IM  program continue.    As an  aside, Mr.  Armstrong                                                               
related  that  he  worked  for former  Senator  Dave  Donley  who                                                               
championed changing the  IM program to a  biennial program, which

2:09:20 PM                                                                                                                    
REPRESENTATIVE  KERTTULA   inquired  as  to  why   the  Anchorage                                                               
Assembly would rescind its decision.                                                                                            
MR. ARMSTRONG offered  that the makeup of  the Anchorage Assembly                                                               
changed.   There  was an  8:2 vote  to terminate  the program  on                                                               
January  1st.   However,  the makeup  of  the Anchorage  Assembly                                                               
changed and  on a 6:4  vote it  decided to maintain  the program.                                                               
He  noted that  Assemblyman  Coffey abstained  from  both of  the                                                               
aforementioned votes.                                                                                                           
2:10:17 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR DAHLSTROM, in response  to Representative Neuman, clarified                                                               
that Version E corrected the mistake.                                                                                           
2:10:39 PM
