the amendments  the department  suggested. Positive  changes were                                                               
made to the bill, he said.                                                                                                      
1:54:33 PM                                                                                                                    
AL BARRETTE, representing himself,  Fairbanks, Alaska, said a lot                                                               
of work has been  done on SB 164 but he  continues to advocate to                                                               
remove  the word  "sport" from  fishing throughout  the bill.  He                                                               
opined that this is the  year to stop the discriminatory practice                                                               
of  requiring  subsistence hunters  to  have  a license  but  not                                                               
subsistence  fishermen. He  talked  about  Alaskans paying  their                                                               
fair share and that should include subsistence fishermen.                                                                       
MR. BARRETTE  pointed out  that Section 6  needs work.  The fines                                                               
for a  commercial fish  violation are doubled  for the  first and                                                               
second offense,  but only  increased by 67  percent on  the third                                                               
offense. He  suggested the fine for  a third offense ought  to be                                                               
doubled as well.

with individual recommendations and attached fiscal note(s).
