  Chairman Moses Called the House Special Committee on

  Representatives Moses, Olberg, Davidson, and Nicholia.                       
  Number 014                                                                   
  HJR 17 - MAGNUSON FISHERY CONSRV & MGT ACT                                   
  The only order of business to come before the committee                      
  members was HJR 17, Relating to reauthorization of the                       
  Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act, sponsored                  
  by Representative Navarre.                                                   
  REPRESENTATIVE MIKE NAVARRE, sponsor of HJR 17, said there                   
  is a proposed committee substitute which addresses some                      
  technical problems.  The bill deals with reauthorization and                 
  supports the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management                    
  Act.  He said there will be some controversy over provisions                 
  in the Act.  The provision that is specific in the                           
  resolution is for the membership of the council to remain                    
  within Alaska majority of voting members.  He stated that he                 
  believes almost all Alaska fishermen will be in support of                   
  reauthorization of the Act.                                                  
  There being no further testimony on HJR 17, REPRESENTATIVE                   
  DAVIDSON moved to adopt CSHJR 17(FSH).  Hearing no                           
  objection, it was so ordered.                                                
  REPRESENTATIVE DAVIDSON indicated he supports the                            
  resolution.  He believes it is a timely resolution, as we do                 
  face some opposition in Congress with regard to the                          
  reauthorization of the Magnuson Act.                                         
  There being no further discussion by committee members,                      
  Representative Davidson moved that CSHJR 17(FSH), be passed                  
  out of the House Special Committee on Fisheries, with                        
  individual recommendations.  There being no objection, the                   
  motion passed.                                                               
  BILL(S) NOT HEARD                                                            
  HB 251 was scheduled but not heard.                                          
  CHAIRMAN MOSES adjourned the meeting at 8:50 a.m.
