farms.  Enactment of the  bill, she said, would help Alaska-based                                                               
aquaculture businesses succeed by  expediting the renewal process                                                               
and reducing  risk for businesses  that make  significant capital                                                               
investments.  She  further stated that the bill  would reduce the                                                               
workload on  an overstretched state agency,  while still allowing                                                               
appropriate regulatory oversight,  public engagement, and appeals                                                               
of DNR's decision.

GREG  SMITH,  Staff,  Representative  Andi  Story,  Alaska  State                                                               
Legislature,  directed attention  to a  DNR document  included in                                                               
the committee packet that answers  the committee's questions from                                                               
the bill's  previous hearing.   Regarding the question  about how                                                               
many aquatic farm  lease renewals are approved by  DNR each year,                                                               
he said the  document states zero in 2014, seven  in 2015, ten in                                                               
2016,  one in  2017, and  zero in  2018 with  twelve applications                                                               
submitted.  He  offered his understanding that a  number of lease                                                               
renewal applications  were submitted  in 2017  that have  not yet                                                               
been  approved  due  to  the  amount of  work  in  the  division.                                                               
Regarding the question  about the range in sizes  of aquatic farm                                                               
leases,  Mr. Smith  said the  document states  the range  is from                                                               
less than  one acre on  up to 127  acres of state-owned  tide and                                                               
submerged lands.  Regarding the  question of whether the director                                                               
would have the authority to deny  a lease renewal given that that                                                               
authority appears  to be  removed in  Section 3  of the  bill, he                                                               
said the  document states  that a director  "may" renew  or "may                                                                
not  renew  a  lease  under   AS  38.05.070(e).    Regarding  the                                                               
questions on salmon  hatcheries that have DNR  general leases, he                                                               
said  the document  states yes,  there are  some.   Regarding the                                                               
length of  salmon hatchery  leases, he  said the  document states                                                               
that there is a 25-year lease and a 30-year lease.                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
MR.  SMITH continued  speaking from  the DNR  document and  noted                                                               
there was a question about the  length of aquatic farm leases and                                                               
said that under  regulation those are 10-year  leases.  Regarding                                                               
questions about what DNR is able  to do during the lease term, at                                                               
renewal, and if there are violations  of the lease terms, he said                                                               
it appears  from the document that  DNR is able to  deny, revoke,                                                               
or rescind  a lease during  the lease  term; change terms  of the                                                               
lease  at renewal,  both under  the current  renewal process  and                                                               
under   the  optional   expedited   renewal   process  under   AS                                                               
38.05.070(e); and DNR is able to  take action on a lease if there                                                               
is a violation  of the lease's terms.  Regarding  the question on                                                               
the types of changes that  would trigger a new lease application,                                                               
Mr. Smith  said the document  states that changes to  the lease's                                                               
footprint or size,  or changes to the lease's  use, would trigger                                                               
a new lease application.                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
1:33:47 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HANNAN drew  attention to  the number  of aquatic                                                               
farm lease renewals  each year.  She surmised  that the sponsor's                                                               
interest  in the  issue stems  from there  being 12  applications                                                               
submitted in 2018  with none of them renewed.   She asked whether                                                               
the sponsor  has heard from  the applicants  and if that  is what                                                               
motivated the  bill.  She  further asked whether an  aquatic farm                                                               
must abandon work on the site if  DNR does not renew the lease in                                                               
a timely manner.                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
1:34:29 PM                                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE STORY deferred to DNR to answer the question.

responded that the  division is working through them,  so they do                                                               
not have  an authorization, but  the division also knows  that it                                                               
is due to  the workload and is  no fault of the  applicants.  She                                                               
said  it  is  a  situation  that neither  the  division  nor  the                                                               
applicant likes,  but the  division must  go through  the process                                                               
before it can say whether  the applicant can continue to operate.                                                               
The applications are being worked  on, she continued, but are not

REPRESENTATIVE HANNAN  asked what staffing levels  are needed for                                                               
this  work to  be completed  in a  timely fashion.   She  further                                                               
asked  whether  DNR's  operating   budget  for  2020  meets  that                                                               
operational need.                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
MS.  COLLES answered  she doesn't  feel comfortable  giving those                                                               
numbers.    She  said  she  doesn't know  exactly  what  type  of                                                               
staffing would  be needed  and she hasn't  seen the  numbers that                                                               
have been given for the operational budget in 2020.                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HANNAN asked  what the  staffing capacity  was in                                                               
2016 as compared to 2018.                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
MS. COLLES replied [the division]  supports the governor's budget                                                               
at this point.   She said the 2018 staffing level  is the same as                                                               
it was in 2016.                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HANNAN interpreted  Ms. Colles'  answer as  being                                                               
that in  2016 the staffing  level that could complete  12 renewal                                                               
applications is the  same staffing level that in  2018 was unable                                                               
to complete any applications.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
MS. COLLES  responded yes, but  explained that the reason  it has                                                               
changed is because the division  has more new applications coming                                                               
in.  In 2016, she continued,  the division did not have the level                                                               
of interest in the  industry as there is now, and  that is why it                                                               
is  more   difficult  for  staff  to   adjudicate  these  renewal

REPRESENTATIVE  HANNAN  asked  how   many  applications  for  new                                                               
mariculture and shellfish permits were received in 2018.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
MS.  COLLES  offered  her  belief   that  there  was  14-16  [new

REPRESENTATIVE HANNAN  inquired whether most of  the applications                                                               
were completed that year.                                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
MS. COLLES answered that the  division was unable to complete all                                                               
of  the applications  and get  them to  issuance.   She said  she                                                               
could not recall the exact number of how many were issued.

REPRESENTATIVE RAUSCHER  asked what the fate  of the applications                                                               
is now.                                                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
MS. COLLES  replied the  division is  continuing to  work through                                                               
them; they  are not  put aside.   She said  the division  has one                                                               
dedicated  staff  member  and   approximately  five  other  staff                                                               
members,  who also  work on  general leases,  that are  assisting                                                               
with the  applications that  are coming  in for  aquatic farming.                                                               
She stated  that there are  competing interests and  projects for                                                               
time and  while she won't say  that they are not  a priority, the                                                               
division is balancing those priorities.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  RAUSCHER  inquired   whether  processing  of  the                                                               
applications  will continue  until  they are  finished, and  that                                                               
time will not kill them.                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
MS. COLLES responded correct.                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE RAUSCHER  related his understanding  from speaking                                                               
with a former commissioner that  sometimes the problem isn't lack                                                               
of funding,  but rather  the problem  of filling  [the position].                                                               
He allowed,  however, that  this has nothing  to do  with today's

REPRESENTATIVE  LINCOLN asked  whether  the  businesses that  are

META  MESDAG, Owner,  Salty Lady  Seafood  Company, testified  in                                                               
support of  SSHB 116.   She stated she is  a board member  of the                                                               
Alaska Shellfish  Growers Association and  that both she  and the                                                               
association support  the bill.  She  related that a year  ago she                                                               
submitted  documents for  a lease  transfer  for a  farm site  in                                                               
Juneau,  and it  was just  recently  completed.   She stated  she                                                               
currently has  oysters at her farm  and is getting ready  to seed                                                               
geoduck.   Oysters take  three years to  become ready  for market                                                               
and geoducks  take up to seven,  she specified.  She  pointed out                                                               
that her  lease has  five years left  on it and  she is  not even                                                               
through all of the process  for getting her site fully permitted.                                                               
During the next four years,  she continued, [her renewal] will be                                                               
up for  public comment three  times and  no revenue will  be seen                                                               
from the geoduck before she has  to start the leasing process all                                                               
over again.                                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
MS. MESDAG said SSHB 116 would allow  DNR to sign off one time on                                                               
the renewal  of leases  that are  in good  standing.   She stated                                                               
this would  improve efficiencies in the  agencies regulating this                                                               
industry  and would  provide assurances  for  farmers wanting  to                                                               
enter the  industry.   This easy  solution, she  continued, would                                                               
grant the director the authority to  renew leases that are in the                                                               
state's best interest.                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
MS. MESDAG  pointed out  that making changes  to her  lease takes                                                               
years.   She explained she  has a parcel  that is supposed  to be                                                               
for a  hardening beach,  but that  it needs  to be  moved because                                                               
it's not the right substrate.   However, she continued, that move                                                               
is going  to take years, which  means she is paying  for property                                                               
that she cannot  actually utilize and the only  reason is because                                                               
the state is  so backlogged that it cannot process  new leases or                                                               
transfers  in a  timely manner  and  in a  way that  makes it  an

testified in support of  SSHB 116.  She said she  owns a farm and                                                               
that both  her farm and  the association  support the bill.   She                                                               
stated  the  association  successfully   worked  to  develop  the

"helping  small, Alaska-based  businesses."    She asked  whether                                                               
there is  any way  to define  the meanings  of "small"  and "good

these leases  should be aligned and  standardized, but maintained                                                               
that there  is a  difference because  these are  navigable waters

MS. HILLSTRAND stated that not  all the scientific information is                                                               
on the  table.  For  example, she  said, there isn't  a magnitude

though they  aren't in  compliance with  their permits,  which is                                                               
what makes her  concerned about what "good standing"  means.  She                                                               
cautioned about  the possibility of over  capitalization and then

is concerned that  as big industry starts to enter  the people of

VICKI JO  KENNEDY told the story  of her friends in  Sterling who                                                               
invested $250,000  in a fisheries  business that  included smoked

something and  then the next one  would say it wasn't,  and after                                                               
almost three years her friends threw  in the towel because it was                                                               
such a nightmare.   She urged the committee to  grow the state by

what to do next.

HERMAN MORGAN expressed  his concern with salmon  hatcheries.  He                                                               
said the commercial  fishermen in his area used to  have a market                                                               
for their  chum and  red salmon,  but the  market was  taken away                                                               
when the  hatcheries came online  and started overproducing.   He                                                               
maintained the hatcheries  are putting out too many  fish and are                                                               
stressing the  carrying capacity  of the  ocean.   The hatcheries                                                               
are making it  hard for people in  his area to make  a living, he                                                               
continued.  He urged that salmon hatcheries be regulated.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
CO-CHAIR  TARR  pointed  out  that  SSHB  116  affects  shellfish

it would  be up to the  department to define what  those could be

REPRESENTATIVE HANNAN asked whether,  because this is about lease

be in compliance  with all the terms of the  original lease to be                                                               
considered in good standing for this expedited lease renewal.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
MR. BULLARD replied, "That seems a reasonable interpretation."                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HANNAN noted  the term  "small" doesn't  actually

as being "small" leases.

MS. COLLES answered that for  authorized leases the range is from                                                               
less than  one acre on  up to 127  acres.   She said most  of the                                                               
farms are less than  30 acres and only one is above  30 acres - a                                                               
new farm  that is  127 acres.   She stated  that the  division is                                                               
seeing some larger farms come online in applications.                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE  HANNAN inquired  whether the  127-acre farm  is a                                                               
corporate type  structure, rather  than a  mom-and-pop structure,                                                               
for shellfish operation.                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
MS. COLLES replied it  is hard to tell.  She said  a lot of these                                                               
companies come in  with business licenses and  sometimes they are                                                               
getting funding from an outside  source, but the division doesn't                                                               
always know all the different  factors of where their sourcing is                                                               
coming from.   Therefore, she continued, she cannot  say for sure                                                               
whether they are a mom-and-pop.                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE HANNAN asked whether there  is a difference in the                                                               
division's  application  oversight  based  on  the  size  of  the                                                               
acreage  that  is being  sought  for  a  lease; in  other  words,                                                               
whether  a 30-acre  application  is treated  differently than  an                                                               
application for 127 acres.                                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
MS.  COLLES  responded  that   some  regulations  give  different                                                               
consideration for larger  farms taking up more  than one-third of                                                               
a bay or  cove.  It isn't  always the size being  so much larger,                                                               
she explained, it  is the size taking up a  large area that makes                                                               
the division  look closer  at the application  to consider  a few                                                               
criteria  that are  listed in  regulation.   But, she  added, she                                                               
wouldn't say  the division treats  them differently.  A  lot more                                                               
comments are received when the farms  are larger, she noted.  For                                                               
example, she related,  recently a farm wanted to  expand a couple                                                               
acres in Kachemak Bay, and  since that requires public notice the                                                               
division got a lot of comments  because it is in a well-populated                                                               
area  and [the  public]  was concerned  about navigation  issues.                                                               
So, she continued, it really depends on the location.

REPRESENTATIVE TALERICO addressed Section 3  of the bill, page 2,                                                               
lines 7-9, which  state:  "The commissioner, for  good cause, may

access to the written denial is  the applicant.  He asked whether                                                               
this would create an issue.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
MR. BULLARD  answered that this  language would impose a  duty on

isn't anything [in the language]  that would limit who else might

responsibilities  of  the  commissioner.    She  interpreted  Mr.                                                               
Bullard to be saying it  doesn't otherwise limit the commissioner
