An Act extending the termination date of the Regulatory Commission of Alaska; and providing for an effective date.

Posted: March 22, 2011 : v27-LS0173-M
Bill Version: CCS HB 24
Status: Chapter 2 Fssla 11 : 2011-06-08

HB 24 extends the sunset date for the Regulatory Commission of Alaska (RCA) to 2019.

I encourage all the members to review the Legislative Audit summary and the full report. In it, you will see that, in the opinion of our auditors, the RCA is serving a public purpose and has demonstrated an effort to resolve issues brought forward by prior audits.

As you can see in the audit, an 8 year extension is recommended.

The RCA serves an important role in the everyday lives of the residents of Alaska. The continuation of the Commission is very important.

Thank you for your support of this legislation.
