 CHAIRMAN RIEGER brought  SB 61  (IMPLEMENT ALASKA 2000                        
 RECOMMENDATIONS) before the committee as the final order of                   
 business.  He directed attention to a draft committee                         
 substitute.                                                                   
                                                                               
 Number 409                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR SALO pointed out that the draft did not contain an                    
 agreed upon change to page 9, line 1,  where the phrase "must                 
 be nonsectarian and" was to be inserted after the words                       
 between "charter school."                                                     
                                                                               
 BETTY HARGRAVE, staff to the HESS committee, explained that                   
 the change was sent to the drafter who changed the wording to                 
 "religion" because he thought that would satisfy Senator                      
 Salo's concern.  However, he does not have a problem with                     
 putting the original language back in.                                        
                                                                               
 SENATOR SALO said she thinks there is a difference in the                     
 effect of the language, that a school could be sectarian and                  
 still not discriminate on the basis of religion.                              
                                                                               
 The committee agreed to insert "must be nonsectarian and" on                  
 page 9, line 1, and to delete "religion" on page 9, line 2.                   
 The Chair then asked for the pleasure of the committee.                       
                                                                               
 SENATOR MILLER moved that CSSB 61(HES) be passed out of                       
 committee with individual recommendations.  Hearing no                        
 objection, it was so ordered.
