01 "An Act designating the official state bolt-action rifle."                                                              
02 BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF ALASKA:                                                                
03    * Section 1. The uncodified law of the State of Alaska is amended by adding a new section                          
04 to read:                                                                                                                
05       LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS. To be an Alaskan during the period 1930 to 1963 meant                                       
06 carrying the "rifleman's rifle," the Winchester pre-1964 Model 70. This was the bolt-action                             
07 rifle that helped Alaska men and women establish a firm foothold in the untamed and often                               
08 wild Alaska wilderness. Because of the historical significance of the Winchester pre-1964                               
09 Model 70, the legislature selects the Winchester pre-1964 Model 70 as the official state bolt-                          
10 action rifle.                                                                                                           
11    * Sec. 2. AS 44.09 is amended by adding a new section to read:                                                     
12            Sec. 44.09.150. State bolt-action rifle. The pre-1964 Winchester Model 70
