Representative Kerttula requested that members stand for a moment of                                
silence and prayer on behalf of Representative Joule.                                               
                                                                                                    
Representative Berkowitz asked whoever is watching over us to heal                                  
our friend Reggie, the one who is Assiguruqtuk.  He is so special.  "In                             
the prayer of my people, Sh'ma Yisrael Adonai Elohaynu Adonai                                       
Echad."                                                                                             
                                                                                                    
                                                                                                    
The invocation was offered by the Chaplain, Pastor Robert Sherwood                                  
of Church of the Nazarene.  Representative Coghill moved and asked                                  
unanimous consent that the invocation be spread on the journal.  There                              
being no objection, it was so ordered.                                                              
                                                                                                    
     Let us pray.  Yahweh spoke to Moses, He said:

     "If anyone offers to Yahweh a communion sacrifice, either to                                   
     fulfil a vow or as a voluntary offering, the animal - from the                                 
     herd or from the flock - must be without blemish if it is to be                                
     acceptable; no defect must be found in it.  You must not offer                                 
     to Yahweh an animal that is blind, lame, mutilated, ulcerous,                                  
     or suffering from skin disease or sore.  No part of such animal                                
     shall be laid on the altar as a burnt offering for Yahweh."                                    
     (Leviticus 22:21-23)                                                                           
                                                                                                    
     God makes it clear to us that He does not want our leftovers.                                  
     He wants our best - like the lady Representative from Willow                                   
     racing in four Iditarods, or the old chaplain before you                                       
     running with teenagers and Special Ops in Desert Storm.  This                                  
     is God's way of dealing with His people:  if we give Him our                                   
     best, He blesses us and takes care of our every need.  If we                                   
     hold back from Him and give Him our leftovers, He will hold                                    
     back His blessing from us.  God does not want our doggy                                        
     bags or our spare change.  He wants you.  Father, heal Reggie                                  
     Joule and restore him to full health and to this community.  In                                
     the name of our Lord and Savior.  Amen.                                                        
                                                                                                    
The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Representative Anderson.

     Sec. 44.37.210.  Assessment by the commissioner.  (a)  In                                    
     consultation with the Carbon Sequestration Advisory Committee                                  
     established under AS 44.37.200, the commissioner shall assess                                  
     state and private land in the state for past carbon sequestration and                          
     future carbon sequestration potential.  The assessment shall seek                              
     to quantify carbon sequestration associated with agricultural,                                 
     forest, soil, and land management systems in this state.  From time                            
     to time, the commissioner may update the findings as                                           
     advancements in understanding of the processes of carbon                                       
     sequestration and new data become available.                                                   
      (b)  The assessment required under this section shall be                                      
     conducted in a manner that provides a means for the state and                                  
     owners of private land to estimate past and future net carbon                                  
     sequestration resulting from agricultural and forestry practices,                              
        conservation measures, management systems, and land uses.
