 SSTA - 5/2/95                                                                 
            HJR 39 NORTHERN SEA ROUTE DEVELOPMENT                            
 SENATOR SHARP brings up HJR 39 as the next order of business before           
 the Senate State Affairs Committee and calls the first witness.               
 Number 350                                                                    
 WAYNE MALONEY, Aide to the Special Committee on World Trade & State           
 & Federal Relations, reads a written statement relaying information           
 on HJR 39 to the committee.  HJR 39 supports international shipping           
 along the Northern Sea Route.  Opening the Northern Sea Route would           
 cut the shipping distance for Alaska cargo bound for Europe by up             
 to 60%.  It is also the shortest route to London from all ports               
 north of Hong Kong.  HJR 39 was passed unanimously by the House of            
 Representatives last month.                                                   
 SENATOR LEMAN makes a motion to discharge HJR 39 from the Senate              
 State Affairs Committee with individual recommendations.                      
 Number 380                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN SHARP, hearing no objection, orders HJR 39 released from             
 committee with individual recommendations.
