HB 98 fixes a problem that occurred with the enactment of HB 359, a bill that passed the House unanimously in the 25th Legislative Session. HB 359 originated due to the desire of Alaskan youths to join the military and not being able to due to probation restrictions from a minor consuming charge that may have occurred 5 years previously. Unfortunately, when the bill was drafted, it left a loop-hole in the repeat minor consuming law.
