 HB 248 - EAST EGAN DRIVE IN VALDEZ                                          
 Number 055                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN HUDSON announced that first order of business to be HB
 248, "An Act naming East Egan Drive in Valdez."  He asked                     
 Representative Kubina to present the bill.                                    
 Number 206                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE GENE KUBINA stated that the milepost on the                    
 Richardson Highway starts where the old town is.  The section of              
 road between the old town and the new town is without milepost                
 numbers.  He stated that the main street coming into town is called           
 Egan Drive.  The bill is proposing that the part of the Richardson            
 Highway between Meals Avenue and the east end of Mineral Creek Loop           
 Road be called East Egan Drive.  The reason is so that the                    
 businesses on that stretch of road can have an address.  He stated            
 that since there aren't any milepost numbers on that stretch of               
 road, the businesses don't have a street address and they can't use           
 their location of minus some odd miles on the Richardson Highway as           
 their address.  By naming this stretch of road East Egan Drive, the           
 businesses will be able to have an address.  He stated that there             
 is an amendment to the bill which clarifies the proper name of the            
 road to be Mineral Creek Loop Road rather than Mineral Creek Road.            
 Number 373                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE JOHN COWDERY moved to adopt Amendment 1.                       
 Number 378                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN HUDSON asked if there were any objections, hearing none              
 Amendment 1 was adopted.                                                      
 REPRESENTATIVE COWDERY asked who was going to pay for the signs,              
 for the new road since there is a zero fiscal note.                           
 Number 453                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE KUBINA replied that the city will put up the signs.            
 Number 475                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE KIM ELTON made a motion to move CSHB 248(TRA), with            
 individual recommendations and a zero fiscal note.                            
 Number 484                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE HUDSON asked if there were any objections, hearing             
 none, CSHB 248(TRA) was moved out of the House Transportation                 
 Standing Committee.
