social well-being of all Alaskans;                                             
		(2)  the cost of electricity in many areas of rural Alaska                  
is four times that of major urban areas and reductions are not                 
expected to be substantially reduced in the near future;                       
		(3)  the cost of power in rural Alaska is a significant                     
detriment to economic growth and to maintaining a basic standard               
of living for rural residents;                                                 
		(4)  a power cost equalization program to provide parity                    
for all Alaskans and to reduce energy costs to residents in high-              
cost areas is vitally needed.                                                  
	(b) The purpose of this Act is to establish a program to                     
provide affordable energy to meet basic economic and lifestyle                 
needs of rural Alaskans, while providing incentives for                        
conservation.  It is further the intent of the legislature to provide          
adequate long-term funding for this program."

Representative Green moved that the House adopt the Conference                 
Committee with limited powers of free conference report, thus                  
adopting CCS SB 101 and recommended that the members vote no.                  
                                                                               
The question being:  "Shall the House adopt the Conference                     
Committee with limited powers of free conference report?"  The roll            
was taken with the following result:

And so, the House failed to adopt the Conference Committee with
