Bill Version: SCS CSHB 126(FIN)
Status: Vetoed By Governor : 2011-06-17
House Bill 126 extends four boards and one commission which would otherwise expire in 2011.
The Board of Barbers and Hairdressers would be extended to June 30, 2019; the Board of Dental Examiners to June 30, 2019; the Board of Nursing to June 30, 2019; the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to June 30, 2015; and the Regulatory Commission of Alaska to June 30, 2019.
The sunset dates in House Bill 126 are as recommended by auditors to the Legislative Budget and Audit Committee.
The bill also creates an exemption from a statute that prohibits a single bill reauthorizing more than one board or commission. The omnibus extension is a more efficient mechanism for routine board and commission extensions. This approach is particularly appropriate in the context of a 90-day legislative session.
