 SENATOR MILLER announced  SJR 17  (MAGNUSON FISHERY CONSRV & MGT ACT)    T)   
 to be up for consideration.                                                   
                                                                               
 SENATOR LITTLE explained that the resolution sends an important               
 message to congress to retain the current geographic composition of           
 the North Pacific Fisheries Management Council so Alaska's                    
 representation would not be weakened.                                         
                                                                               
 She said the proposed CS contains technical amendments requested by           
 the Department of Fish and Game.  It deletes "high seas" and                  
 replaces it with "exclusive economic zone."  It removes the term              
 "outer" from "outer continental shelf."                                       
                                                                               
 SENATOR LITTLE noted there was a $0 fiscal note.                              
                                                                               
 Number 133                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR DONLEY moved to adopt the CS to SJR 17.  There were no                
 objections and it was so ordered.                                             
                                                                               
 SENATOR LITTLE said that there was a letter of support from the               
 Kenai Peninsula Fishermen's Association.  She also noted they                 
 wanted more persons to be added to the list to which they would               
 send the resolution, but they wanted to make that amendment in                
 Judiciary.                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR LEMAN moved to discharge CSSJR 17 from Committee with                 
 individual recommendations.  There were no objections and it was so           
 ordered.
