 Number 120                                                                    
                   SB 206 WELFARE REFORM                                     
  SENATOR TORGERSON  brought SB 206 before the committee as the next           
 order of business.   He noted at the last hearing on the bill there           
 were several concerns brought up as to the application of the bill            
 as it relates to Native communities and Native organizations.   A             
 letter was sent to the Department of Health & Social Services                 
 requesting clarification of certain points.  The department                   
 responded that a lot of the questions couldn't be answered because            
 of waivers, Congress and other stipulations that have yet to be               
 determined.  It is his opinion that this was a broad-based approach           
 to such a comprehensive bill, so he had a Community & Regional                
 Affairs CS drafted that basically deletes Section 47.27.070,                  
 "Coordination with Alaska Native Organizations with Tribal Family             
 Assistance Programs."  It also defines "qualified entity" as                  
 municipalities, other political subdivisions of the state,                    
 nonprofit corporations under AS 10.20, or combinations of these.              
 On page 33, line 35, "local governments" is changed to                        
 "municipalities" for consistency.                                             
 Number 152                                                                    
  SENATOR KELLY  moved that CSSB 206(CRA) be adopted.  Hearing no              
 objection, the motion carried.                                                
  SENATOR KELLY  moved that CSSB 206(CRA) be passed out of committee           
 with individual recommendations.  Hearing no objection, the                   
 Chairman stated CSSB 206(CRA) would move from committee with                  
 individual recommendations.
