            A 48-year-old skipper from Kodiak has died after apparently losing consciousness aboard his vessel Sunday night in Monashka Bay. Alaska State Troopers have identified the man as Alvin Holdiman and say foul play is not suspected.

             A Coast Guard helicopter lifted the skipper from the 35-foot Lady Taelyr at 10:15 p.m. Sunday night, but Holdiman passed away before reaching the hospital.

            Coast Guard spokeswoman Petty Officer Sara Francis says a crewmember aboard the boat called for help after finding the man unconscious and unresponsive.

             An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Kodiak flew to Monashka Bay and a rescue swimmer performed CPR on the man, but it was apparently too late to revive him.

            Coast Guard Petty Officer Jonathan Lally said Monday that family members would be retrieving the Lady Taelyr.

            An autopsy is pending and the case remains under investigation.

            With just weeks left in the legislative session, Governor Sean Parnell is again asking lawmakers to suspend the state motor fuels tax for two years. It doesn't look like it will happen.

            Little attention has been paid to the proposal this session except for a few hearings on the bill early on, with lawmakers questioning in part whether consumers would actually see a price drop at the pump if the tax were suspended.

            Parnell resurrected the issue last week, saying high gas prices necessitated another look at his proposal.

            But lawmakers have shown virtually no interest in taking it up, with major spending and oil-tax bills still pending.

            Today (Monday), House Majority Leader Alan Austerman of Kodiak said the governor's renewed call for action has not generated much discussion among his colleagues.

             Austerman made the comments during a Monday morning house majority press conference.

            A House bill being circulated in Juneau would help the state track commercial fishing's economic impact in Alaska. The initiative would log crew data from commercial fishing vessels.

            An earlier version that had put the onus on skippers to report crew data stalled last year following opposition from the state's largest fishermen's group. But this version is different. Instead of putting the burden on skippers, it's individual crew members who would fill out the forms.

            House Majority Leader Alan Austerman of Kodiak is the bill's sponsor.
