SENATE BILL NO. 114 BY THE SENATE RULES COMMITTEE                                                   
BY REQUEST OF THE GOVERNOR, entitled:                                                               
               "An Act increasing the fee for a state business                                     
          license; and providing for an effective date."                                            
was read the first time and referred to the Labor and Commerce and                                  
Finance Committees.                                                                                 
The following fiscal information was published today:                                               
 Fiscal Note No. 1, Department of Community and Economic                                            
Governor's transmittal letter dated March 5:                                                        
Dear President Therriault:                                                                          
Under the authority of art. III, sec. 18, of the Alaska Constitution, I am                          
transmitting a bill that would increase the fee for a business license.                             
The current fee has been in effect since 1949. The current revenues                                 
collected fall far short of the services provided to Alaskan businesses.                            
The increase in fees is in line with what other states charge.

I urge your prompt and favorable action on this measure.
