 CHAIRMAN MILLER brought  HB 215 am  (SUSPENSION OF STUDENTS) before           
 the committee.  He directed attention to a Rules SCS which adds the           
 University of Alaska to the legislation.                                      
 WENDY REDMAN, representing the University of Alaska, in speaking to           
 the original intent of the legislation, said the reason it came up            
 was a student in Anchorage pulled a gun on a volunteer in the                 
 school after school hours.  Because that student wasn't attending             
 school at the time, the way the current law is written they                   
 couldn't deal with the student.                                               
 Ms. Redman said the University has a law on the books from 1949               
 when there was just the president of the University that says only            
 the president of the University can expel or suspend students.  The           
 Rules SCS will allow the president to delegate that authority to              
 the chancellor or another official on each campus, etc.                       
 There being no further discussion, CHAIRMAN MILLER asked for the              
 pleasure of the committee.                                                    
 SENATOR SHARP moved that SCS HB 215(RLS) be adopted and that it be            
 approved for calendaring.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.
