ACTION NARRATIVE 11:21:33 AM CO-CHAIR LESIL MCGUIRE called the Senate Resources Standing Committee meeting to order at 11:21 a.m. Present at the call to order were Senators Stevens, Wielechowski, French and McGuire. HB 14 ALASKAN MALAMUTE AS STATE DOG 11:22:11 AM CO-CHAIR MCGUIRE announced HB 14 to be up for consideration. [CSHB 14(STA) was before the committee.] She explained that the idea of having an official state dog has been around for a long time. She thought having the Alaska Malamute as the official state dog and to have the Alaskan Husky as Alaska's official sled dog. She asked for other ideas on that point. CO-CHAIR WIELECHOWSKI, hearing no other ideas, moved to report HB 14 from committee with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s). There being no objection, CSHB 14(STA) moved from committee. HJR 27-STATE SOVEREIGNTY 11:23:48 AM CO-CHAIR MCGUIRE announced HJR 27 to be up for consideration. [SCS CSHB(RES), 26-LS0760\E had been moved from committee on 4/17/09.] CO-CHAIR WIELECHOWSKI moved to adopt Senate CS for CSHJR 27, 26- LS0760\S as the working document. There being no objection, version S was before the committee. CO-CHAIR MCGUIRE asked him to explain the changes that were made. DEREK MILLER, staff to Representative Kelly, sponsor of HJR 27, explained the SCS deleted a "whereas clause" from the previous version in reference to the federal government being an agent of the states. The sponsor supports this compromise, he said. 11:24:35 AM CO-CHAIR WIELECHOWSKI asked if SENATOR FRENCH had reviewed the SCS. SENATOR FRENCH replied yes, and he found that his concerns were addressed. 11:25:11 AM CO-CHAIR WIELECHOWSKI moved to report [SCS for] CS for HJR 27 from committee with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s). There being no objection, SCS CSHJR 27(2D RES), 26-LS0760\S, moved from committee. 11:25:34 AM There being no further business to come before the committee, Co-Chair McGuire adjourned the meeting at 11:25 a.m.
