VICE-CHAIRMAN KELLY brought up the draft CS to SB 56 with changes                                                               
recommended by Deputy Commissioner Lindstrom, and decided the                                                                   
committee wouldn't adopt the work draft today. Instead, HESS would                                                              
take testimony on SB 56 and the other bills.                                                                                    
Number 031                                                                                                                      
MR. JAY LIVEY, Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Health &                                                                
Social Services, remarked that Shelby Larson is on-line to testify                                                              
from Anchorage.  He  recalled the issue in the CS for SB 56 is

in the proper section of the statute.  The suggestion was to move                                                               
the language to AS 18.18.  Mr. Livey stated the CS does not change                                                              
any of the bill's functions.                                                                                                    
VICE-CHAIRMAN KELLY asked if Mr. Livey wanted to testify on the
