An Act relating to homeland security, to civil defense, to emergencies and to disasters, including disasters in the event of attacks, outbreaks of disease, or threats of attack or outbreak of disease; establishing the Alaska division of homeland security and emergency management in the Department of Military and Veterans' Affairs and relating to the functions of that division and that department; and providing for an effective date.

Contact: Wes Keller, 465-4729
Action: 05-11-04: Passed the House » Awaits Trans to Gov

On May 11, with a 19 to 1 vote the Senate passed House amendments made to SB 385. It consolidates two Divisions in the Department of Military and Veterans’ Affairs. The Division of Emergency Services and the Division of Homeland Security are combined into a new Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services. Besides providing organizational efficiency, the bill updates civil defense laws that were written in the Cold War era. The updates address homeland security and proper responses to terrorism threat situations. The Rules Committee deleted the Homeland Security and Emergency Services subcommittee and instead gives the Speaker and President authority to appointe legislators or committees to review the department. It also created a homeland security coordinator position in the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.
