     Three weeks into the legislative session, District 36 Representative Alan Austerman says activity has been hectic in the state capital. Finance subcommittee hearings, he says, have been taking up a lot of his time, particularly discussion of long-term planning.

            Austerman, along with Kodiak Senator Gary Stevens will hold their first joint constituent teleconference of the year tonight (Thursday) at 6 p.m. KMXT will carry it live.

 

 

--          (Austerman 1              39 sec              "Part of the objective is to ... see how it goes.")

 

            He says the one bill he's introduced this year - to allow shellfish farmers to use the "Grown in Alaska" label in their marketing, is coming along, but administrative changes may make it unneeded.

 

--          (Austerman 2              27 sec              "We've introduced that ... comments back from DNR.")

 

            Austerman says he's not a supporter of House Speaker Mike Chenault's idea to use money from the Alaska Permanent Fund to pay for an in-state natural gas pipeline from the North Slope.

 

--          (Austerman 3              36 sec              "Well, I like the idea of ... the assets that they have.")

 

            Chenault's plan is to have an advisory vote of the people to gauge public reaction to using Permanent Fund money for the project.
