We pray today, O Lord God, for those who gather                               
here.  We pray that You will bless them for their                              
willingness to serve You and Your people.  We                                  
pray that You will bless their families who will also                          
make a sacrifice in their separation from loved ones.                          
We pray that You will be their ever present help in                            
their hard moments in life.  We pray that You will                             
fill them with Your love and with Your grace, that                             
their purpose in serving may be rewarded with                                  
fulfillment in their hearts.  Be with all of us, we                            
pray, and guide us in our daily walk.         Amen.

The Rules Committee considered CS FOR HOUSE JOINT                              
RESOLUTION NO. 59(RES) Respectfully requesting the                             
Environmental Protection Agency to issue a final National Pollutant            
Discharge Elimination System permit for Cook Inlet oil and gas                 
operations that omits the incremental permittee monitoring and                 
reporting obligations identified in the Agency's draft permit and,             
consistent with the philosophy of the Agency's 1996 National Water             
Program Agenda, allows the permittees to operate under pollutant               
discharge monitoring and reporting requirements that are not more              
rigorous than those requirements of the Cook Inlet National Pollutant          
Discharge Elimination System permit in place.  Signing to calendar:

National Water Program Agenda, allows the permittees to operate                
under pollutant discharge monitoring and reporting requirements that           
are not more rigorous than those requirements of the Cook Inlet
