 SENATOR MILLER announced  HB 239  (RAFFLE OR AUCTION OF BIG GAME              
 PERMITS) to be up for consideration.                                          
 REPRESENTATIVE CON BUNDE, Sponsor, said HB 239 is a revenue                   
 generating bill that will allow raffles and auctions of certain               
 permits to take big game.  He said he supported the CS.                       
 REPRESENTATIVE BUNDE, Director, Division of Wildlife Conservation,            
 explained that the bison raffle has not generated enough money to             
 keep the safeguard program going.  They would receive 50% of the              
 proceeds.  Other organizations would receive 10% with 90% going to            
 the Fish and Game fund.                                                       
 SENATOR ZHAROFF asked how they get around the dedicated fund issue.           
 REPRESENTATIVE BUNDE said this would be like the sale of the duck             
 stamp prints.                                                                 
 MR. KELLEYHOUSE said he didn't think there would be a problem with            
 the money going into the Fish and Game fund.                                  
 JOHN GEORGE, Alaska Outdoor Council, supported the proposed CS to             
 HB 239.                                                                       
 SENATOR PEARCE moved to adopt the CS to HB 239.  There were no                
 objections and it was so ordered.                                             
 SENATOR PEARCE moved to pass CSHB 239 (RES) from committee with               
 individual recommendations.  There were no objections and it was so
