  SPONSOR SUBSTITUTE FOR SENATE BILL NO. 19                                    
                                                                               
       An Act relating to the location of the convening of the                 
       legislature in regular session.                                         
                                                                               
  Senator  Phillips  asked  that  SSSB  19 be  brought  before                 
                                                                               
                                                                               
  committee.    Co-chairman  Halford noted  that  it  had been                 
  carried forward on  the committee agenda.   Senator Phillips                 
  then  MOVED  for passage  of CSSSSB  19  (Fin).   He further                 
  directed attention to a package of eighteen fiscal notes  to                 
  accompany  the  bill.     He  advised  that  he  asked   the                 
  Legislative  Finance Division  to analyze fiscal  notes from                 
  various  departments  and make  appropriate recommendations.                 
  The Senator voiced disagreement with legislative analysis on                 
  some of the  notes and said  that the ultimate authority  on                 
  expenditures  associated  with  the  moves  rests  with  the                 
  legislature.  As an example of concern regarding fiscal note                 
  amounts, Senator Phillips cited the $1.4 million to renovate                 
  the  existing capitol  building for alternative  office use.                 
  He then reiterated his  motion for passage of the  bill with                 
  the eighteen new fiscal notes.                                               
                                                                               
  Senator  Zharoff OBJECTED.   He  referenced prior  testimony                 
  against  the  bill  and the  recent  statewide  capital move                 
  initiative which  failed.   Juneau seeks  an opportunity  to                 
  work  with government in an effort to bring it closer to the                 
  people.  That  opportunity should be provided.   Co-chairman                 
  Halford  called for  a show  of hands  on the  motion.   The                 
  motion CARRIED on  a vote of  5 to 2.   CSSSSB 19 (Fin)  was                 
  REPORTED OUT of committee with the following fiscal notes:
