 SSTA - 3/2/95                                                                 
         HCR 11 SOBRIETY AWARENESS MONTH: MARCH 1995                         
                                                                               
 SENATOR SHARP brings up HCR 11 as the next order of business before           
 the Senate State Affairs Committee and calls the first witness.               
                                                                               
 Number 566                                                                    
                                                                               
 DEBORAH OSTENDORF, Aide to Representative Nicholia, prime sponsor             
 of HCR 11, states HCR 11 is a positive, proactive resolution which            
 was requested by AFN (Alaska Federation of Natives).  She brings to           
 the committee's attention the fact that the last "further resolved"           
 on page 2, asks the governor to issue a proclamation, but the                 
 proclamation has already been issued.                                         
                                                                               
 SENATOR LEMAN notes correcting that would slow the resolution down,           
 so...                                                                         
                                                                               
 TAPE 95-8, SIDE B                                                             
                                                                               
 SENATOR LEMAN...it would be better to send the resolution without             
 amending it.  He comments on the previous resolution before the               
 committee which named March as Women's History Month and assumes              
 there could be lots of different things for any particular month.             
 He asks who besides the particular groups become aware of these               
 resolutions, or if it just gives the groups the ability to                    
 advertise.                                                                    
                                                                               
 MS. OSTENDORF responds the resolutions give various groups the                
 ability to advertise.  AFN will be promoting HCR 11.                          
                                                                               
 Number 564                                                                    
                                                                               
 SENATOR DONLEY makes a motion to discharge HCR 11 from the Senate             
 State Affairs Committee with individual recommendations.                      
                                                                               
 CHAIRMAN SHARP, hearing no objection, orders HCR 11 released from             
 committee with individual recommendations.
