         HJR 23 COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FISHING QUOTAS                         
 CHAIRMAN LEMAN brought up HJR 23 as the first order of business               
 before the Senate Resources Committee.  The chairman called the               
 prime sponsor to testify.                                                     
 Number 015                                                                    
 REPRESENTATIVE ALAN AUSTERMAN, prime sponsor of HJR 23, relayed               
 information contained in the sponsor statement.  HJR 23 supports              
 the reauthorization of the in-shore/off-shore Community Development           
 Quota (CDQ) program.                                                          
 Number 090                                                                    
 KIM METCALFE-HELMAR, Special Assistant to the Commissioner,                   
 Department of Community & Regional Affairs, stated the department             
 supports HJR 23.  The CDQ program has been an enormous success in             
 Western Alaska.  Ms. Metcalfe-Helmar provided committee members               
 with copies of a draft report by DC&RA, Economic Impacts of the              
 Pollack CDQ Program.                                                         
 Number 125                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN LEMAN asked Ms. Metcalfe-Helmar if there has been any                
 opposition to the CDQ program.                                                
 Number 130                                                                    
 MS. METCALFE-HELMAR responded that the only opposition she is aware           
 of relates directly to the crab allocation.  She knows some people            
 are unhappy with the CDQ program, but they haven't heard any                  
 opposition in testimony.                                                      
 Number 178                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN LEMAN announced that HJR 23 would be set aside until the             
 committee got a quorum.                                                       
 SRES - 4/24/95                                                                
 Number 558

 SENATOR HALFORD made a motion to discharge HJR 23 from the Senate             
 Resources Committee with individual recommendations.
