In 1977 the Alaska State Legislature found there was a need for an effective and regular system of scrutinizing the programs and activities of all State agencies, boards and commissions. The legislature further found that the establishment of a system for periodic review by the public, the executive and legislative branches of certain state agencies, boards and commissions would help the governor and the legislature determine the need for the continued existence of each. Under AS 44.66, this review has continued since 1977 for boards and commissions. The dates to review programs and agencies of the state ended in 1983 and were never reenacted.
