REPRESENTATIVE TAMMIE  WILSON, Alaska State Legislature,  began by                                                              
explaining  changes in the  committee substitute  and referred  to

2:07:54 PM

document.   There being  no objection,  Version  H was before  the                                                              
committee.                                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
2:08:21 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE WILSON  referred to page 1, line 14,  and stated it                                                              
previously read  "The state may  not publish ..." and  the current                                                              
version reads "The  Alaska Court System may not publish  ..."  She                                                              
then referred  to page 2, line  1, wherein "internet"  was changed                                                              
to "a  publicly available  website ..."   She remarked  that there                                                              
were  concerns that  "internet" was  a broad  terminology and  the                                                              
intent was  to focus  solely on "CourtView."   She then  responded                                                              
to Representative  Gruenberg's previous  question regarding  other                                                              
states and  their procedures.  She  advised that the  Alaska Court                                                              
System entails the  entire state and that most  examples she found                                                              
were  based upon  counties and  not  statewide areas.   She  noted                                                              
that  social security  numbers and  the  name of  the county  were                                                              
required in other states.                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
2:09:48 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
The committee took a brief at-ease.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
2:10:04 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  LEDOUX  announced  that  public  testimony  was  left  open                                                              
during the last meeting.                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
2:10:48 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  GRUENBERG referred  to page 2,  line 4,  and asked                                                              
whether  it  should  require  that   criminal  charges  have  been                                                              
dismissed  with prejudice.   He  advised he was  not certain  that                                                              
would  be a  good idea  and wondered  whether any  of the  lawyers                                                              
thought it would be an improvement.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
2:11:40 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
TRACEY  WALLENBERG, Deputy  Public  Defender, Appellate  Division,                                                              
Public Defender  Agency, Department  of Administration,  responded                                                              
that  the suggestion  would  significantly  narrow  the number  of                                                              
cases to  which this applies as  there are very  few circumstances                                                              
in which  cases are  dismissed with prejudice.   She  offered that                                                              
most of the time  cases are dismissed without  prejudice which may                                                              
be due to  the fact that the  prosecutor determined there  was not                                                              
sufficient  cause  to  proceed  with the  charges  or  some  other                                                              
equitable  reason to  not go forward  with the  case.   Generally,                                                              
she posited,  under those  circumstances the prosecutor  dismisses                                                              
without prejudice  under Criminal  Rule 43.   She noted  that even                                                              
in  circumstances where  the prosecutor  does  not see  fit to  go                                                              
forward  and  dismisses  the  charges  under  those  circumstances                                                              
(indisc.)  the  statute to  only  apply  to cases  dismissed  with                                                              
prejudice  would  be  excluded  and they  would  still  appear  on

2:12:58 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR LEDOUX  closed public  testimony after  ascertaining  no one                                                              
further wished to testify.
