CO-CHAIR TALERICO  announced that the  next order of  business is                                                               
HOUSE BILL NO.  128, "An Act establishing August 10  of each year                                                               
as Alaska Wild Salmon Day."                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
1:20:42 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE BRYCE  EDGMON, Alaska State Legislature,  as prime                                                               
sponsor, introduced  HB 128 and  advised it sets aside  August 10                                                               
each year to  celebrate the Alaska Wild Salmon.   He advised that                                                               
the bill  creates an  opportunity for  all Alaskans  to celebrate

they so desire.   Research indicates that the creation  of a wild                                                               
salmon  day  also  offers  those in  the  tourism  industry,  and                                                               
marketers of all things Alaska,  an opportunity to have the cache                                                               
of Alaska Wild Salmon Day, he  offered.  In drafting the bill, he                                                               
said,  they  worked  with tourism  industry  entities  and  chose                                                               
August 10  as it was a  date unoccupied by any  other Alaska day,                                                               
and  it wasn't  in the  month  of July  which is  stacked with  a                                                               
number of celebrations.                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
1:23:11 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE HERRON  asked whether August 10  is Representative                                                               
Edgmon's birthday.                                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EDGMON  replied it is  not his birthday and  is an                                                               
arbitrary date.   He advised  that those in the  tourism industry                                                               
believe  August 10  is still  during  the height  of the  tourist                                                               
season, and  that it would  be appropriate  to set one  day aside                                                               
for those coming  into the state as tourists as  well as Alaskans                                                               
to celebrate Alaska Salmon Day.                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE HERRON asked whether  the sponsor would support an                                                               
amendment offered by United Fishermen  of Alaska to change "chum"                                                               
to "keta."                                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE EDGMON responded that  "chum" is the more accepted                                                               
term, but  he would defer  to the  committee's will.   He pointed                                                               
out that most people know "dog salmon" as "chum salmon."                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
CO-CHAIR TALERICO  opened public  testimony then closed  it after                                                               
ascertaining no one wished to testify.                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
1:25:47 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  SEATON  said  he  is unsure  the  date  is  right                                                               
because  two weeks  ago, 259  king  salmon were  caught in  Homer                                                               
during  the  tournament,  and  a February  date  may  be  better.                                                               
Salmon  are  ubiquitous around  Alaska  and  are very  valued  by                                                               
everyone, he stated, and he supports the bill.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE HERRON  concurred that  salmon is Alaska's  way of                                                               
life and recognizing wild salmon is a great honor for Alaska.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE TARR  supported the  bill and asked  whether there                                                               
would be an Alaska Wild Salmon Day song to help celebrate.                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
CO-CHAIR NAGEAK  advised it is  appropriate that wild  salmon are                                                               
celebrated on August 10.                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
1:27:25 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  SEATON  moved  to  report  HB  128,  labeled  29-                                                               
LS0563\W, out  of committee  with individual  recommendations and
