  CHAIRMAN MILLER  called the Senate Rules Committee meeting to order          
 at 11:08 a.m., and brought  SB 64  (SALE OF ALASKA RAILROAD) before           
 the committee as the first order of business.                                 
 SENATOR PEARCE stated she would be offering three amendments to the           
 legislation when it reaches the Senate floor.  One of the                     
 amendments will give the legislature the ability to look at whether           
 or not an RFP has been deliberately designed so as not to sell the            
 railroad.  The second amendment to subsection (b) on page 1 relates           
 to accepting assignment of all contracts including collective                 
 bargaining agreements and retirement obligations.  The third                  
 amendment relates to rather than accepting assignment of all                  
 contracts it provides an exemption for employment contracts,                  
 because of some senior management who are on contracts.                       
 SENATOR PEARCE moved and asked unanimous consent SB 64 be approved            
 for calendaring.  Hearing no objection, it was so ordered.
