 SENATOR RANDY PHILLIPS brought  SB 294  (PETERSBURG CANNED SALMON             
 CLASSIC) before the committee as the next order of business.                  
                                                                               
 SENATOR TAYLOR, prime sponsor of SB 294, explained that the bill              
 will amend the law to include, among all the other classics, a                
 canned salmon classic.  In the event, people purchase a ticket and            
 guess the number of cans of salmon that will be produced in the two           
 salmon canneries in Petersburg during the fishing season.  It has             
 been a good money raiser in the past for good causes in the                   
 community.                                                                    
                                                                               
 Number 443                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR RANDY PHILLIPS asked if this existed before January 1959.             
 SENATOR TAYLOR answered that it didn't, although various bars and             
 canneries themselves have done that sort of thing on and off for              
 years.  However, it wasn't formally done in the community until               
 just recently.                                                                
                                                                               
 Number 452                                                                    
 SENATOR RANDY PHILLIPS stated testimony would be taken over the               
 teleconference network from Petersburg.                                       
                                                                               
 PATRICK WILSON, Chairman of the Canned Salmon Classic and Plant               
 Manager of Petersburg Fisheries, said being a community that is               
 heavily dependent on the fishing industry, they thought it would be           
 appropriate to get their name out in front, raise some funds for              
 the Petersburg Chamber of Commerce and roll the revenues back into            
 the community, and to have some fun doing it by bringing the canned           
 salmon classic program into existence.                                        
                                                                               
 There being no other witnesses wishing to testify on SB 294,                  
 SENATOR RANDY PHILLIPS asked for the pleasure of the committee.               
                                                                               
 SENATOR TAYLOR moved that SB 294 be passed out of committee with              
 individual recommendations.  Hearing no objection, it was so                  
 ordered.
