  HB 523 - GRAND JURY EVIDENCE BY POLICE OFFICERS                              
  CHAIRMAN VEZEY opened HB 523 for discussion.  He stated HB
  523 amends existing statute.  Section 1 is the purpose of                    
  the act.  Section 2 amends existing language under Alaska                    
  Rule of Criminal Procedure.  He noted HB 523 amends a court                  
  decision; thereby requiring a two-thirds vote of both houses                 
  in order to become effective.  He continued HB 523 revises                   
  the court rules of evidence to allow a supervising police                    
  officer to relate the testimony of another peace officer.                    
  The intent of HB 523 is to reduce the amount of time police                  
  officers have to spend in court, as opposed to being on the                  
  street on duty.                                                              
  Number 107                                                                   
  REPRESENTATIVE GARY DAVIS moved to pass HB 523 from                          
  committee with individual recommendations and accompanying                   
  fiscal notes.                                                                
  Number 110                                                                   
  CHAIRMAN VEZEY asked the committee secretary to call the

  ABSENT:        REPRESENTATIVES ULMER, OLBERG.                                
  (REPRESENTATIVE SANDERS indicated he was in favor via                        
  MOTION PASSED
