  SENATE BILL NO. 232                                                          
       An  Act relating  to  permanent fund  dividend  program                 
       notice requirements, to the ineligibility for dividends                 
       of individuals  convicted of  felonies or  incarcerated                 
       for  misdemeanors,  and  to  the determination  of  the                 
       number and identity of  certain ineligible individuals;                 
       and providing for an effective date.                                    
  Co-chairman Halford directed that SB 232 be brought back for                 
  discussion.  Co-chairman Frank  reiterated that the proposed                 
  bill  updates legislation vetoed  last year.   It would make                 
  those convicted of a  felony or incarcerated for a  third or                 
  subsequent   misdemeanor   ineligible  for   permanent  fund                 
  dividends.  The bill was held from a prior hearing to review                 
  the possibility  of including the child  support enforcement                 
  division.     Legislative  attorneys   had  earlier   raised                 
  constitutional questions surrounding inclusion.  Co-chairman                 
  Frank  advised that staff would  brief members on the status                 
  of that concern.                                                             
  Co-chairman  Halford  referenced   an  impending   resources                 
  committee  meeting  and  the  number  of people  wishing  to                 
  testify on the bill  and suggested that time did  not permit                 
  further discussion.  Co-chairman Frank MOVED for adoption of                 
  a draft  CSSB 323 (9-LS1455\F,  Cook, 2/27/96) as  a working                 
  document and  requested  unanimous consent.    No  objection                 
  having been raised, CSSB 232 (Fin) was ADOPTED.  Co-chairman                 
  Halford  directed  that  the  bill  be held  for  subsequent                 
  The meeting was adjourned at approximately 10:45 a.m.
