          SB 203 TASK FORCE ON RECYCLING INDUSTRIES                          
 Number 072                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN SHARP brought up SB 203 as the next order of business                
 before the Senate State Affairs Committee.                                    
 Number 080                                                                    
 SENATOR JIM DUNCAN, prime sponsor of SB 203, stated the bill would            
 establish a legislative task force on recycling industries                    
 development in Alaska.  The objective is to develop a state-wide              
 plan for in-state industrial uses for recycled materials.                     
 Integrating recycling markets and economic development is essential           
 to the success of a state-wide recycling program.  Development of             
 such a program will likely have to originate in urban markets and             
 branch out as the program grows.  The focus of the task force will            
 be on what type of products can be recycled, where feasible markets           
 for these products are located, and how much financial support, if            
 any, will be needed.  Senator Duncan noted that committee members             
 have backup information in their bill packets.  There is a fiscal             
 note from the Legislative Affairs Agency.                                     
 CHAIRMAN SHARP asked if there are questions of the sponsor.                   
 Hearing none, he stated it looks like a good idea to him.  He asked           
 the pleasure of the committee.                                                
 SENATOR RANDY PHILLIPS thinks it is a good idea also.                         
 SENATOR DUNCAN made a motion to discharge SB 203 from the Senate              
 State Affairs Committee with individual recommendations.                      
 Number 125                                                                    
 CHAIRMAN SHARP, hearing no objection, stated SB 203 was discharged            
 from the Senate State Affairs Committee.
