 SJUD - 2/13/95                                                                
         SB  41 REPORTS BY OUT OF STATE FISHING VESSELS                       
  CHAIRMAN ROBIN TAYLOR  called the Judiciary Committee meeting to             
 order at 1:35 p.m.  Present were Senators Taylor, Green, and Adams.           
 The first order of business was SB 41.                                        
 Number 016                                                                    
 SENATOR ADAMS moved and asked unanimous consent that the committee            
 adopt CSSB 41 (Jud) at this time.  There being no objection, the              
 committee substitute was adopted.                                             
 TERRY OTNESS, staff to Senator Taylor, sponsor of SB 41, testified.           
 He explained the committee substitute addresses problems with                 
 definitions raised by the U.S. Coast Guard in a memorandum dated              
 February 11, 1995.  The term "foreign fishing vessel" is replaced             
 by "unlicensed fishing vessel," and the term "registered under the            
 laws of the state" is replaced by "licensed under AS 16.05.490 -              
 16.05.530."  SENATOR TAYLOR stated the purpose of CSSB 41 is to               
 compel non-Alaskan fishing vessels to report the volume of fish               
 taken, particularly Canadian vessels who use Alaska harbors.                  
 SENATOR ELLIS arrived at 1:37 p.m.                                            
 Number 062                                                                    
 SENATOR ADAMS moved and asked unanimous consent that CSSB 41 (Jud)            
 be reported out of committee with individual recommendations.                 
 There being no objection, the motion passed.
