            SB 213 - EXTEND ALASKA MINERALS COMMISSION                         
                                                                               
CHAIRMAN HALFORD announced SB 213 to be up for consideration.                  
                                                                               
SENATOR DUNCAN, sponsor, said SB 213 extends the termination date              
of the Alaska Minerals Commission from January 1999 to February 1,             
2004.                                                                          
                                                                               
CHAIRMAN HALFORD said there is a $0 fiscal note which he didn't                
think was right on a sunset bill, because the Commission could not             
go forward without passage of legislation.  The Administration                 
included it in their budget, because they assume it's going                    
forward.  This one is odd, because it would sunset in the middle of            
a fiscal year.  He said there really is a fiscal impact to                     
extending a commission.                                                        
                                                                               
SENATOR DUNCAN said his point was well taken.                                  
                                                                               
SENATOR TAYLOR moved SB 213 from committee with individual                     
recommendations.  There were no objections and it was so ordered.              
                                                                               
CHAIRMAN HALFORD adjourned the meeting at 5:00 p.m.
