Alaska, explained that amendment 1 is a clean-up amendment and

KENDRA KLOSTER, Staff, Representative Chris Tuck, Alaska State                                                                  
Legislature, Juneau, Alaska, provided a detailed overview of                                                                    
Amendment 1 as follows:                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
     In the  last hearing,  Senator Wilson  pointed out  that                                                                   
     we were  missing a  word on page  2, the word  "active."                                                                   
     So, as I  talked with Dan Wayne with  Legislative Legal,                                                                   
     he agreed  that that language  needed to be  cleaned up.                                                                   
     So, this  is what amendment 1  does is it cleans  up the                                                                   
     language  to make  sure it's  consistent on  page 1  and                                                                   
     page 2 saying the same thing.                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
5:46:20 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR GIESSEL removed her objection.                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE TUCK commented on HB 3 as follows:                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
     I  want to  thank this  committee  for taking  up HB  3.                                                                   
     This is  something that  I think  is very important,  we                                                                   
     want to  make sure that  our Alaskan residents  have the                                                                   
     same  reappointment  act that  they  are called  by  the                                                                   
     governor  to duty  as  they would  be  the president.  I                                                                   
     just  want to  make a note  that this  does not  include
