 ARR - 2/22/95                                                                 
        HB 130 REGULATION ADOPTION PROCEDURES & REVIEW                       
 Number 225                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE KELLY, prime sponsor of HB 130, relayed information            
 contained in the sponsor statement to the committee.                          
 Number 345                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN RANDY PHILLIPS expressed the thought that it would work if           
 there was a constitutional amendment.                                         
 REPRESENTATIVE KELLY asked Chairman Phillips if he has a regulation           
 reform bill on which he is working.                                           
 CHAIRMAN RANDY PHILLIPS responded he would like to get rid of the             
 committee.  He thinks the committee should be given the tools it              
 needs, or disband the committee.                                              
 REPRESENTATIVE KELLY agreed with Chairman Phillips.                           
 Number 390                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE ROKEBERG asked Representative Kelly if he is                   
 suggesting HB 130 will not work without a constitutional amendment.           
 REPRESENTATIVE KELLY replied the power is there to return the                 
 regulation to the agency.  It is through the Lieutenant Governor's            
 Office; that is how the separation of powers issue is avoided.  The           
 lieutenant governor is not beholden to the governor or the                    
 agencies.  The lieutenant governor is only beholden to the people             
 of the State of Alaska.  Representative Kelly believes HB 130 would           
 work within the existing process.                                             
 Number 434                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN RANDY PHILLIPS commented that everyone would like to see             
 the same thing: the committee needs to acquire the necessary tools.
