SENATOR REINBOLD  asked if Mr.  Gease from the Division  of Parks                                                               
and Outdoor Recreation had any concerns regarding SB 91.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
3:33:24 PM                                                                                                                    
RICKY  GEASE, Division  Director, Division  of Parks  and Outdoor                                                               
Recreation,  Alaska Department  of Natural  Resources, Anchorage,                                                               
Alaska, answered  that the division supports  the project running                                                               
through the Federal Energy  Regulatory Commission (FERC) process.                                                               
He noted  that two other  lakes were studied previously  and were                                                               
shown to  be unfeasible.  He said  passing SB  91 will  allow the                                                               
FERC process to  go through and the studies to  take place. After                                                               
the  studies are  complete, the  appropriate next  steps will  be                                                               
considered. He summarized that the  proposed changes in SB 91 are                                                               
necessary for the FERC process to occur.                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR REINBOLD voiced support for SB 91.                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
3:33:54 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR KAWASAKI joined the committee meeting.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR KIEHL  referenced the discussion in  the previous hearing                                                               
that if the  project were to be feasible and  go ahead, the power                                                               
would run out of the park  on straight, short lines. He asked Mr.                                                               
Gease if he was comfortable that  the language in the bill covers                                                               
the necessary power lines to move the power from the project.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
MR.  GEASE  answered  yes; the  division  is  comfortable  moving                                                               
forward with the existing language.
