CHAIR COSTELLO  announced the  consideration of  HB 86  and asked                                                               
the sponsor to provide a summary.                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
1:33:43 PM                                                                                                                    
REPRESENTATIVE  MATT CLAMAN,  Alaska  State Legislature,  Juneau,                                                               
Alaska, sponsor  of HB  86, said the  bill repeals  statutes that                                                               
allow the Alaska Commission on  Postsecondary Education (ACPE) to                                                               
threaten nonrenewal of occupational  licenses for individuals who                                                               
have defaulted on student loans. In  the past, those who have had                                                               
their  licenses revoked  have  often  left the  state  to set  up                                                               
practice  elsewhere. The  state  not only  loses  the ability  to                                                               
collect but  also a skilled  member of the Alaska  workforce. The                                                               
ACPE  has  not  used  this  authority  since  2010  because  wage                                                               
garnishment is more  effective. It makes sense  to eliminate this                                                               
punitive and ineffective method of student loan debt collection.                                                                
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR COSTELLO found no questions and solicited a motion.

SENATOR MEYER moved to report  [HB 86], version A, from committee                                                               
with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s).

CHAIR  COSTELLO found  no objection  and announced  that [HB  86]

At ease                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR COSTELLO reconvened the meeting  and advised that the wrong
