It limits the scope of jurisdiction to cover Alaska statutes and municipal ordinances. The CS also changes the mark on the license from ROC (Restriction On Consumption) to COAR (Court Ordered Alcohol Restriction).

Previously amendments were made authorizing the state to charge an enhanced fee for a license or ID under this statute and these circumstances. Additionally the bill was amended to ensure that a person who is convicted and is required to have a ''marked ID'' not have the privilege to purchase alcohol or knowingly enter or remain in a licensed establishment that sells alcohol with the intention to obtain alcohol for personal consumption.

05-06-06 : Passed the Legislature, to be transmitted to the Governor for signature.

Provides language that would allow hatchery operators to choose to recover their costs through other methods that would allow these fish to be caught by any salmon permit holder. This would allow the fleet to access more fish. Because each hatchery has a unique financial situation, an open access type of cost recovery may not be applicable to all hatcheries.

Senate Finance committee substitute provides that a hatchery may choose to use the new cost recovery method spelled out in the bill by a majority vote of the membership of the Board of Directors. Furthermore, the amendment allows hatcheries to make a final decision after the Department of Fish & Game promulgates regulations governing a common property cost recovery fishery. It will allow the hatchery board to pursue either the current cost recovery scenario or to use the new method knowing what regulations would apply to either option.
