HB 265 - REPORTS & RECORDS OF & TO STATE AGENCIES                              
CHAIR JAMES announced the next order of business was House Bill No.            
265, "An Act relating to pamphlets, publications, plans, and                   
records of state agencies; and relating to reports to and from                 
state agencies and the governor."                                              
REPRESENTATIVE DYSON requested permission to be excused for a House            
Resource Standing Committee meeting.  Permission was granted with              
the condition he return when a vote was called.                                
Number 1254                                                                    
REPRESENTATIVE TERRY MARTIN said HB 265 has been about six years in            
the making, originating during the Hickel administration.  He                  
stated the intention of HB 265 to reduce the number of annual                  
reports demanded by the legislature.  He noted the Office of                   
Management and Budget was able to recommend 43 reports for                     
elimination, from an original number of 90.  Representative Martin             
said he did not have a cost savings figure, but noted the reduction            
in required annual reports would save time, energy and money.                  
Referring to an e-mail message he'd previously sent, Representative            
Martin asked that a committee substitute be considered.                        
CHAIR JAMES called an at-ease at 9:27 a.m. in order to obtain a                
Number 1412                                                                    
CHAIR JAMES announced HB 265 would be held until the next meeting              
of the House State Affairs Standing Committee.
