 HB 498-BETTY CATO BRIDGE IN VALDEZ                                         
                                                                              
 Number 084                                                                    
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN GARY DAVIS announced that the committee would next address           
 HB 498.  He said in discussion with Representative Kubina, he                 
 agreed that he would submit HB 498 as a transportation bill.                  
                                                                               
 Number 137                                                                    
                                                                               
 SHERI CAPLES, Valdez City Council, testified via teleconference               
 from Valdez.  She said Ms. Cato was instrumental in the                       
 construction of the bridge over Mineral Creek.  It was through Ms.            
 Cato's support of a grant proposal awarded by the state of Alaska             
 that the bridge was built.  In August of 1995, the Valdez City                
 Council took action to dedicate the bridge to Ms. Bette Cato, a               
 plaque was made and a dedication ceremony will be held in June of             
 1996.                                                                         
                                                                               
 Number 158                                                                    
                                                                               
 REPRESENTATIVE GENE KUBINA said Ms. Cato's part in the development            
 of this bridge opened up a whole new section of the community of              
 Valdez.  He added that Ms. Cato knew and was excited about                    
 dedication and the plaque.  He thanked the transportation committee           
 for officially submitting HB 498.                                             
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN GARY DAVIS said any minutes or any resolution from the               
 city of Valdez would be the only information needed to settle the             
 matter.                                                                       
                                                                               
 REPRESENTATIVE KUBINA said he would get this information.                     
                                                                               
 Number 240                                                                    
                                                                               
 REPRESENTATIVE BRICE made a motion to move HB 498 with accompanying           
 fiscal note and individual recommendations.  Hearing no objections            
 HB 498 was moved from the House Standing Committee on                         
 Transportation.                                                               
                                                                               
 REPRESENTATIVE JAMES said, as it was Chairman Gary Davis' bill, she           
 would entertain a request to waive HB 498 from the House Standing             
 State Affairs Committee.
