3:31:25 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR GIESSEL announced the consideration  of SJR 10, version 29-                                                               
LS0446\H. She explained  that this resolution calls  out the ANWR                                                               
decision by the  President and encourages Congress  to reject it;                                                               
it opposes the United States  Fish and Wildlife Service's (USFWS)                                                               
revised comprehensive  conservation plan (CCP)  and Environmental                                                               
Impact Statement  (EIS) and any  recommendation by  the President                                                               
based on that plan.                                                                                                             
3:32:35 PM                                                                                                                    
SENATOR MICCICHE joined the committee.                                                                                          
SENATOR COGHILL commented  that this is one of  the many promises                                                               
given to the  state by Congress that has  definitely been misused                                                               
and he was grateful for the resolution.                                                                                         
SENATOR COSTELLO  said she appreciated the  chair's leadership in                                                               
preparing this  resolution. She offered  a friendly  amendment to                                                               
add  the members  of Congress  as one  of the  entities receiving                                                               
copies  of  the resolution.  There  were  no objections  and  the                                                               
amendment was adopted.                                                                                                          
SENATOR MICCICHE said he supported  all the comments of committee                                                               
members  and that  the resolution  unifies the  body behind  this                                                               
SENATOR STEDMAN  said he agreed that  it's a good idea  to take a                                                               
vote of  the body. He  said apparently  the state had  some input                                                               
over the last several years as  this was under way at the federal                                                               
level  and was  wondering  if they  should  have some  discussion                                                               
about it with  the administration, so the legislature  is more up                                                               
to speed about some of  the behind the scenes inter-workings. The                                                               
federal  government should  give them  some notice  prior to  the                                                               
final decision on something of this magnitude.                                                                                  
3:37:31 PM                                                                                                                    
CHAIR GIESSEL said  she knew this CCP was out  for public comment                                                               
a  while back  because she  participated  in it  as did  resource                                                               
development organizations  in the state,  but the events  of last                                                               
Sunday  caught  them off-guard.  She  opened  public comment  and                                                               
finding none closed it.                                                                                                         
SENATOR  COSTELLO  moved  to  report SJR  10,  as  amended,  from                                                               
committee  with individual  recommendations  and attached  fiscal                                                               
note(s). There  were no objections and,  therefore, CSSJR 10(RES)                                                               
moved from the Senate Resources Standing Committee.
