CHAIR MORGAN reminded the committee  that at the prior hearing of                                                               
CSSB 63(STA) public  testimony was closed.  He noted  that he had                                                               
held the  legislation due  to a request  from a  certain industry                                                               
and  that industry  didn't  have any  questions.   Therefore,  he                                                               
asked if the committee members had any questions.                                                                               
REPRESENTATIVE SAMUELS  posed a  situation in  which there  was a                                                               
decision  [to  incorporate,  consolidate,   et  cetera]  in  mid-

ready by January, he asked.

REPRESENTATIVE  PAUL SEATON,  Alaska  State Legislature,  pointed                                                               
out  that   all  the   processes  [leading   to  a   decision  to                                                               
incorporate, consolidate, et cetera]  take some time.  Therefore,                                                               
there is  plenty of time  to put a  structure in place,  he said.                                                               
Since  January  1st is  specified  in  statute  as the  date  for                                                               
valuation of property, it's a logical date.
