  CHAIRMAN TIM KELLY  called the Senate Labor and Commerce Committee           
 meeting to order at 6:45 p.m.  He brought  HB 221  (WORKERS                   
 COMP:VOLUNTEER FIRE FIGHTERS, ETC) before the committee as the only           
 order of business and directed attention to a proposed L&C SCS.               
 LINDA GIGUERE, staff to Representative Bill Hudson, stated his                
 support for the L&C SCS.  She explained it simply extends the scope           
 of duties of a fire fighter that are covered under workers                    
 compensation to include participation in training exercises that              
 are authorized by the state.                                                  
 JOSH FINK, committee aide, added that the Alaska Municipal League             
 supports the legislation.                                                     
 CHAIRMAN KELLY asked for a motion on the committee substitute.                
 SENATOR SHARP moved that SCS HB 221(L&C) be adopted.  Hearing no              
 objection, the motion carried.                                                
 SENATOR SHARP moved that HB 221 be passed out of committee with               
 individual recommendations.  Hearing no objection, it was so                  
 There being no further business to come before the committee, the             
 meeting was adjourned at 6:50 p.m.
