CHAIR WILSON announced that the final order of business would be                                                                
SENATE  BILL NO.  111,  "An Act  relating to  the  duration of  a                                                               
certificate  of   compliance  for   an  intrastate   air  service                                                               
provider; and providing for an effective date."                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
2:52:40 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
TIM  BENINTENDI,   Staff,  Senator  Donny  Olson,   Alaska  State                                                               
Legislature,  speaking on  behalf of  the prime  sponsor, Senator                                                               
Donny Olson,  stated SB 111  would align two timeframes  that are                                                               
currently  out  of synch  for  the  DOT&PF.   He  explained  that                                                               
Certificates  of Compliance  are  mandated by  DOT&PF for  public                                                               
display  by  intra-state air  carriers  to  show the  public  the                                                               
carrier  carries  valid  liability  insurance.    Currently,  the                                                               
certificates  are   issued  on  a  calendar   basis,  January  to                                                               
December, yet  air carrier insurance  policies can start  and end                                                               
throughout the  year.   He mentioned  most renewals  occur during                                                               
the  year rather  that  on  January 1.    Thus,  new and  renewed                                                               
insurance  necessitates that  the certificates  be renewed  for a                                                               
second time, which waste time and  money for all air carriers and                                                               
DOT&PF personnel.  This bill  would allow certificates "to float"                                                               
with  the  carrier's insurance  period  and  the actual  language                                                               
change would be from a calendar  year to any 12-month period.  He                                                               
related that the bill is supported by the air carriers.                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
2:54:15 PM

Commissioner, related that the DOT&PF supports SB 111.                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
2:55:20 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  WILSON, after  first  determining no  one  else wished  to

2:55:31 PM
