Juneau, Alaska                      Tuesday             April 18, 2000         
                                                                               
                              One Hundredth Day                              
                                                                               
                                                                               
Pursuant to adjournment, the House was called to order by Speaker              
Porter at 10:10 a.m.                                                           
                                                                               
                                                                               
Roll call showed 32 members present.  Representatives Barnes, Masek,           
Mulder, Phillips, Rokeberg, Sanders, Therriault, and Williams were             
absent and their presence was noted later.                                     
                                                                               
                                                                               
The invocation was offered by the Chaplain, Envoy Craig Fanning of             
The Salvation Army. Representative Hudson moved and asked                      
unanimous consent that the invocation be spread on the journal.  There         
being no objection, it appears below:                                          
                                                                               
Shall we pray,                                                                
                                                                               
Father God, be with us this day as we delight in Your                         
handiwork that we call Alaska.  Make us ever thankful for all                  
its resources and its spectacular beauty.  Allow each lawmaker                 
here the ability to see Your creation in a fresh way today.                    
Grant to them a clearer understanding of the issues that will                  
require their attention, and bless them in all they accomplish                 
for those they represent.  This we ask as Your servants.                       
Amen.                                                                          
                                                                               
                                                                               
The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Representative Murkowski.

                         CERTIFICATION OF THE JOURNAL                        
                                                                               
Representative Green moved and asked unanimous consent that the                
journal for the 99th legislative day be approved as certified by the           
Chief Clerk.  There being no objection, it was so ordered.

The following letter was dated and received April 17, 2000:                    
                                                                               
"Dear Speaker Porter:                                                          
                                                                               
Under the authority of Art. II, sec. 15, of the Alaska Constitution, I         
have vetoed the following bill:                                                
                                                                               
HOUSE CS FOR CS FOR SENATE BILL NO. 7(FIN) am H                               
"An Act relating to the University of Alaska and university land              
and authorizing the University of Alaska to select additional state            
land."                                                                         
                                                                               
The bill provides for the selection and transfer of 260,000 acres of           
state land to the University of Alaska.  It is the latest of several efforts   
since statehood to obtain more land for the university system as a             
revenue-raising means.                                                         
                                                                               
                                                                               
Throughout my term as governor, I have strongly supported the                  
university.  I have proposed healthy operating budget increases, fought        
for adequate capital funding for university facilities, worked to              
encourage Alaska's best and brightest students to attend Alaska's              
university and obtained a long-term source of funding for the                  
university through the Charter with BP Amoco.                                  
                                                                               
                                                                               
However, this bill is the wrong approach toward adequate resources for         
the university.  As I did in 1995 and 1996, former Alaska Governor             
Bill Egan vetoed similar legislation in 1959.                                  
                                                                               
                                                                               

2000-04-18                     House Journal                      Page 3251
SB 7                                                                         
As Governor Egan noted in his veto of a university lands bill, this            
measure is "inconsistent with constitutional concepts and not in the           
public interest."  I agree with Governor Egan regarding the concept of         
earmarking state lands when he said:                                           
                                                                               
                                                                               
" . . . can we in good conscience limit the practice to the                   
University?  Why not similar provision for common schools,                     
public building, hospitals, penal institutions, highways,                      
airports, aid to dependent children, and so on throughout the                  
entire list of important state functions?"                                     
                                                                               
                                                                               
I continue to believe the basic premise of the bill, transfer of state land    
to the university for the purpose of raising revenue, is not in the best       
interest of the state.  It is an inefficient and unsuccessful way to secure    
reliable funding for the university.  Instead, this bill will complicate       
state land management, contribute to significant land use conflicts, and       
likely lead to years of litigation reminiscent of the Mental Health Trust      
Lands case.                                                                    
                                                                               
                                                                               
Instead of a futile attempt to generate revenue for the university             
through the grant of additional state land, I have long worked for             
adequate resources for higher education.  For the coming year, I               
proposed the largest increase ever - $16.9 million  for the University         
of Alaska's operating budget.  As a result of the Charter my                   
administration negotiated between the State, BP Amoco and Phillips             
Petroleum Company, the university also will realize income estimated           
at $2.8 million each year.  And, as I have in the past, I support an           
appropriation of additional federal lands to the university consistent         
with land grants offered in other states.                                      
                                                                               
                                                                               
The University of Alaska has a broad mission of educating and training         
Alaskans for future economic and civic responsibilities, for vital             
research in the public interest and for public service.  Despite this veto,    
I remain open and willing to work with the university and its                  
supporters on reasonable means to advance that mission.  But a grant           
of state  land  as  proposed  in  this  bill will not solve the university's

The following letter was dated and received April 17, 2000:                    
                                                                               
"Dear Speaker Porter:                                                          
                                                                               
Under the authority of art. II, sec. 15 of the Alaska Constitution, I have     
vetoed the following bill:                                                     
                                                                               
HOUSE CS FOR CS FOR SENATE BILL NO. 267(RES)                                  
"An Act relating to management of game."                                      
                                                                               
                                                                               
The bill virtually nullifies the widely supported 1996 citizen initiative,     
which banned the same-day airborne hunting of wolves, wolverine, fox           
and lynx except in limited cases of biological emergency.  Most                
Alaskans do not consider it fair chase and appropriate hunting                 
technique to track and spot a wolf from an aircraft, land, and kill it.        
This behavior also invites other unethical, illegal practices such as          
herding of wolves and shooting from the aircraft before landing.               
                                                                               
The initiative was supported by 58 percent of Alaska voters who said           
the practice of land and shoot hunting of wolves is unacceptable and           
that, while biological emergencies may justify such a drastic measure,         
these circumstances are exceptional and use of this game management            
tool must be tightly controlled.                                               
                                                                               
                                                                               
To use as a method of state predator control unethical techniques that         
encourage illegal activity is a throwback to the universally discredited       
policies of bounties, poisoning and denning, the practice of killing wolf      
pups.

SB 267                                                                       
This Legislature's approach to game management is out of touch and             
divisive.  It has proven so in three ways.  First, by efforts to remove        
public participation in wildlife management decisions.  Second, by             
action to overturn public support of the initiative on same-day airborne       
wolf control.  Third, by restricting and even prohibiting the statutory        
mandate for diversity of opinion on the state Board of Game.                   
                                                                               
                                                                               
On the other hand, we can resolve the issue of predator control in a           
way that unifies Alaskans rather than dividing them.  This can occur           
by increasing diversity on the Board of Game so that non-consumptive           
users are represented; by creating areas for the protection of wolves          
and bears to benefit the growing watchable wildlife sector of our              
visitor industry; and by applying principles of adaptive management so         
that any needed predator control efforts are part of a program of sound        
scientific research.                                                           
                                                                               
                                                                               
The legislature began its erosion of the 1996 citizens' initiative last        
year by weakening the standards the public decided to apply to these           
types of predator control efforts.  That bill was enacted over my veto.        
Added to the change included in this bill, the revisions are now so            
sweeping they subvert most of the initiative's provisions.  These              
legislative tactics exclude Alaskans from management of our wildlife.          
                                                                               
                                                                               
Wildlife management must ensure the long-term conservation of all              
species and habitats and provide for the broadest range of human uses          
and values through an accessible and responsive public process.  The           
control technique of land and shoot hunting endorsed by this bill sets         
bad wildlife management policy that will likely succeed only in                
polarizing Alaskans.
