  SENATOR  LEMAN  introduced HB  98  (BLACK VETS'  RECOGNITION                 
  BRIDGE,ALASKA HWY) as the next order of business.                            
  ELIZABETH  ROBERTS, staff  to  Representative Bettye  Davis,                 
  said  the  legislation is a  bill that recognizes the  eight                 
  months of labor that the black veterans put in  on the Alcan                 
  Highway.    She said  every  bit  of the  Alcan  Highway, in                 
  Alaska, was built by  the black veterans.  They  spent eight                 
  months in hideous conditions, and they finished the road  in                 
  record time.                                                                 
  HB 98  will name the bride over  the Gerstle River the Black                 
  Veterans Recognition Bridge.                                                 
  REPRESENTATIVE BETTYE DAVIS,  prime sponsor of HB  98, urged                 
  the  committee's favorable consideration  and passage  of HB
  98.   She  also noted  the  Department of  Transportation  &                 
  Public Facilities' strong support for the legislation.                       
  SENATOR MILLER moved that  HB 98 be passed out  of committee                 
  with individual recommendations.   Hearing no objection,  it                 
  was so ordered.
