 The Senate Community & Regional Affairs Committee was called to               
 order by Chairman Randy Phillips at 9:05 a.m.  He then brought                
  SSSCR 14  (NAME HATCHERY AT MAIN BAY: H.Z. HANSEN) before the                
 committee as the only order of business.                                      
 Number 015                                                                    
 BILL KELDER, staff to Senator Jay Kerttula who is prime sponsor of            
 SSSCR 14, said Mr. Hansen was a distinguished Alaskan who showed a            
 keen interest in the fishing industry and he helped develop and               
 implement the state's fish hatchery program in the Prince William             
 Sound region.  Naming the Main Bay Hatchery in Prince William Sound           
 after Mr. Hansen would be a very appropriate thing for the state to           
 Number 075                                                                    
 JERRY MCKUNE, President, Cordova District Fishermen's United                  
 (CDFU), said he personally knew Harold Hansen, and that he did a              
 lot for their area.  He noted that Mr. Hansen was at one time                 
 director of Cordova District Fishermen's United, putting a lot of             
 fishermen to work.  He stated CDFU's support for the resolution.              
 SENATOR TAYLOR said this was formerly Senator Kerttula's district,            
 and he asked if Senator Lincoln, who now represents that district,            
 is in agreement with the resolution.  BILL KELDER said Senator                
 Kerttula has spoken to Senator Lincoln and she has no problem with            
 his sponsorship of the resolution.                                            
 Number 105                                                                    
 LENNIE GORSUCH of Juneau, said she personally knew Harold Hansen              
 when she worked for Governor Egan and he was the director of                  
 International Fisheries.  She stated her strong support for passage           
 of the resolution.                                                            
 There being no further testimony on SSSCR 14, SENATOR RANDY                   
 PHILLIPS asked for the will of the committee.                                 
 Number 117                                                                    
 SENATOR ZHAROFF moved that SSSCR 14 be passed out of committee with           
 individual recommendations.  Hearing no objection, it was so                  
 There being no further business to come before the committee, the             
 meeting was adjourned at 9:10 a.m.
