Senator  Green noted that  she no  longer had  an objection  to this                                                            
legislation, which she questioned at the previous hearing.                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair Donley  stated that he wished to draft Letter  of Intent to                                                            
accompany this legislation.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
AT EASE 9:13 AM / 9:21 AM                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair Donley  spoke to a proposed Letter of Intent  that reads as                                                            
follows.                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
     The  legislature   requests  that  the  Board  of  Barbers  and                                                            
     Hairdressers  carefully consider the option of  self-testing by                                                            
     various vocations  regulated by the Board and  that it consider                                                            
     a pilot program  of self-testing. The legislature  specifically                                                            
     requests  the board to research and investigate  the results of                                                            
     self-testing in Washington and Oregon.                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair  Donley shared  that  the Division  of Legal  and  Research                                                            
Services identified  that both Washington  and Oregon provide  self-                                                            
testing  options  and that  some  other  states  do no  testing.  He                                                            
explained that in Alaska  there are limited locations that offer the                                                            
necessary  testing  and  that parties  sometimes  must  wait  months                                                            
before testing.  This letter, he stated, asks the  board to consider                                                            
the  merits  of self-testing   and its  success  in  Washington  and                                                            
Oregon.                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair Donley moved for adoption.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
There was no objection and the Letter of Intent was ADOPTED.                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
Co-Chair  Donley offered a  motion to report  from Committee,  SB 53

and Economic Development and the Letter of Intent.                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
There was no objection and the bill MOVED from Committee.
