CHAIRMAN KELLY brought CSHB 135(RLS) - DENTISTS: LICENSING & EXTEND            
EXAMINING BD before the committee and requested a calendaring                  
motion on the legislation.                                                     
                                                                               
SENATOR LEMAN moved CSHB 135(RLS) be approved for calendaring at               
the discretion of the Chair.  SENATOR TAYLOR objected for the                  
purpose of a clarification on the Labor and Commerce SCS.                      
                                                                               
SENATOR LEMAN said the Labor & Commerce SCS mainly makes some                  
technical changes relating to licensing from other jurisdictions.              
These changes were worked out between the holders of licenses and              
the Division of Occupational Licensing.                                        
                                                                               
SENATOR TAYLOR asked if there was a provision relating to insurance            
added into the committee substitute.                                           
                                                                               
TIM BENINTENDI, Senate Rules Committee Aide, responded that he has             
heard nothing about the bill dealing with any insurance issue.  He             
explained the major change in the Labor & Commerce SCS applies to              
instances  where there is licensure in another state that might not            
match the state of Alaska's requirements.  If  somebody who is                 
applying for licensure in Alaska has a certificate covering the                
area of expertise that does not match in the two states'                       
requirements, then the certificate is acceptable to Alaska.                    
SENATOR TAYLOR withdrew his objection to the calendaring motion.               
Hearing no further objection, CHAIRMAN KELLY stated the motion                 
carried.
