CHAIR CLAMAN announced  that the next order of  business would be                                                               
HOUSE BILL NO. 8, "An Act relating to protective orders."                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  CLAMAN explained  that this  is the  third hearing  on the                                                               
bill.   On  [2/13/17], the  committee adopted  proposed committee                                                               
substitute [Version  30-LS0127\D] as  the working document.   Due                                                               
to concern  there could be  unintended consequences  by repealing                                                               
certain subparagraphs  in Sec. 8  and 9,  a proposal was  made to                                                               
return  to [Version  30-LS0127\A] as  the working  document.   He                                                               
then  asked Representative  Fansler to  explain his  reasoning in                                                               
returning to Version A.                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
2:05:01 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE    FANSLER    offered    his    appreciation    to                                                               
Representative Eastman  for [Version D],  and his desire  to make                                                               
Alaska's  laws concise,  understandable, and  as plainly  read as                                                               
possible.   He then spoke  to the  importance of not  cutting the                                                               
two sections  cut from  Version D,  such that  it could  lead the                                                               
state down  the trail of  unintended consequences  by eliminating                                                               
the  language  as  it  appears  under  the  dissolution  section.                                                               
Thereby, he  explained, sending  a sign  to attorneys,  the court                                                               
system, or others, that perhaps  these types of protective orders                                                               
no longer should be considered.   Certainly, an argument could be                                                               
made that because the committee went  out of its way to eliminate                                                               
that,  protective  orders  no  longer   have  a  relevance  in  a                                                               
dissolution proceeding which, he  stressed, is definitely not the                                                               
committee's intent.  Also, he  pointed out, [Version A] continues                                                               
to  encourage  the good  practice  of  filing protective  orders,                                                               
thereby,  putting the  protective  order on  the  record for  law                                                               
enforcement  and the  court system  within in  the Alaska  Public                                                               
Safety Information Network (APSIN).                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
2:07:09 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
TIM  CLARK,  Staff,  Representative Bryce  Edgmon,  Alaska  State                                                               
Legislature, said that the sponsor,  Representative Edgmon, is in                                                               
full support of the proposal to return to Version A.                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EASTMAN  remarked that this  is an example  of the                                                               
committee highlighting the responsibility  of each member to look                                                               
closely at  the laws  being drafted,  and not  rush bills  out of                                                               
committee until the members have confidence in the bills.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
2:08:56 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE FANSLER  moved to adopt HB  8, Version 30-LS0127\A                                                               
as the  working document.   There being  no objection,  Version A                                                               
was before the committee.                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
2:09:40 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE FANSLER  commented that he  is supportive of  HB 8                                                               
being moved  along, and reiterated  that HB 8 is  bringing Alaska                                                               
statutes into alignment with federal law.                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR CLAMAN  offered appreciation  to Representative  Eastman in                                                               
offering the questions  he raised.  He related  that over history                                                               
brought  forward  by  former Representative  Max  Gruenberg,  the                                                               
reputation  of  this committee  is  that  it digs  into  details,                                                               
doesn't  hesitate   to  discuss   details  carefully,   and  this                                                               
committee continues in that tradition.                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
2:10:38 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE FANSLER moved to  report HB 8, Version 30-LS0127\A                                                               
out  of   committee  with  individual  recommendations   and  the                                                               
accompanying fiscal  notes.  There  being no objection, HB  8 was
