CHAIR OLSON objected for purpose of discussion.                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
3:24:55 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
MS.  PIERSON  explained that  Amendment  1  states that  a  state                                                               
agency, including  the Alaska Housing Finance  Corporation (AHFC)                                                               
and Alaska Industrial Development  Export Authority (AIDEA), does                                                               
not have  to post bond.   Thus, state agencies would  not need to                                                               
post a bond.   In response to Representative  Neuman, Ms. Pierson                                                               
explained  that  a  bonding   requirement  exists  for  trustees.                                                               
However,  it  was  determined that  state  agencies  have  enough                                                               
assets that they do not need to  bond.  She offered that it would                                                               
be  similar  to  how  a  title  insurance  company  is  given  an                                                               
exclusion.                                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  OLSON  removed his  objection.    There being  no  further                                                               
objection, Amendment 1 was adopted.

MS. PIERSON explained  that Amendment 2 deletes  all the Internet                                                               
publication  requirements.   She related  her understanding  that                                                               
possibly only  one website would  qualify.  She offered  that she

willing to work  on the issue to allow others  to qualify such as                                                               
newspapers, to  address cost such  as providing free  access, and                                                               
other options.   She opined  that the Internet provision  will be                                                               
reintroduced, but it will represent consensus.
