Regulation Review Committee
Wraps Up Session Meetings

(Juneau) The Administrative Regulation Review Committee will hold its final meeting during session on Tuesday, April 24 according to Chair, Representative Lesil McGuire. On the agenda will be several topics that have topped earlier discussions during the session.

"We are going to review updated information on the Pioneers Homes, in part because of their intent to increase fees citing statute that appears to conflict with this effort. There is also a growing concern by some members about the delays in repairing or replacing ventilation systems at some of the Homes." McGuire said. She added, "In what became a bigger issue, than any of us thought the revised mariculture regulations are out and we need an update. Those regulations went to negotiation between the Department of Fish and Game and the Stakeholders because of an earlier review by this committee. As I understand it, the satisfaction rate with the new proposal is about 90 percent in favor 10 percent opposed. When we started our review in February those numbers were reversed."

The committee will also get an update on the regulations that are being proposed and those recently passed. While that information is not normally newsworthy, it is one of the more important aspects of the committee's work.

This will be the last meeting of the Committee while still in Juneau. During the interim the committee will meet at least once a month via teleconference. The Committee may hold additional meetings if a member of the public or a legislator notifies a committee member that there is a potential problem with a specific regulation. Tuesday afternoon's meeting will begin at 2:45 in the House State Affairs Room, #102.
