The words "North Star" on page 3 will be corrected to read

SENATOR LEMAN moved CSHJR 11-ENDORSING ANWR LEASING (O&G) for

SENATOR PEARCE asked if the licensing boards and commissions are                                                                
still affected by the Finance Committee version of SB 24.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR LEMAN thought they are not.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR LEMAN moved SB 24-REGULATIONS: ADOPTION & JUDICIAL REVIEW                                                               
for calendaring.  SENATOR ELLIS objected.  CHAIRMAN KELLY stated he                                                             
would like to hold SB 24 over for one day to review the changes                                                                 
made in the Finance Committee version.  There being no objection,                                                               
SB 24 was held over.                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
CHAIRMAN KELLY informed committee members he asked the revisor of                                                               
statutes to check the two committee substitutes.  The revisor                                                                   
reported all versions contain technical corrections only.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR PEARCE noted the Legislative Council recommended that two                                                               
revisor's bills be introduced: one contains a substantive law                                                                   
change; the other contains technical corrections only.  She asked                                                               
if SB 42 contains the technical corrections.                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR LEMAN stated SB 42 is the non-controversial bill.  CHAIRMAN                                                             
KELLY stated his understanding, from the revisor of statutes, is                                                                
that the Judiciary version contains revisions only and that the                                                                 
revisor supports it.                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR PEARCE moved SB 42-1999 REVISOR'S BILL for calendaring.                                                                 
There being no objection, the motion carried.                                                                                   
SENATOR LEMAN moved SB 100-REIMBURSEMENT FOR PUBLIC DEFENDER for                                                                
calendaring.  SENATOR ELLIS objected.  The motion to calendar SB
100 carried with Senators Pearce, Leman and Kelly voting "yea," and

SENATOR LEMAN moved SB 101-DEFINITION OF DISASTER for calendaring.                                                              
SENATOR ELLIS objected.  The motion to calendar SB 101 carried with                                                             
Senators Leman, Pearce and Kelly voting "yea," and Senator Ellis                                                                
voting "nay."                                                                                                                   
There being no further business to come before the committee,
