Legislature Directs Review of Unorganized Borough

During the 2002 legislative session, the Alaska House of Representatives approved "House CS for CS for Senate Bill No. 359(FIN)" by a vote of 35 - 0 (with 5 members absent). The Alaska Senate approved the legislation by a vote of 19 - 0 (with 1 member absent). The legislation was subsequently signed into law (Chapter 53, SLA 2002) by Governor Knowles. Section 3 of Chapter 53, SLA 2002 provides as follows:

Sec. 3. The uncodified law of the State of Alaska is amended by adding a new section to read:

NEW BOROUGH INCORPORATION. The Local Boundary Commission shall review conditions in the unorganized borough. By the 30th day of the First Regular Session of the Twenty-Third Alaska State Legislature, the commission shall report to the legislature the areas it has identified that meet the standards for incorporation. No portion of the report under this section constitutes a Local Boundary Commission proposal for purposes of art. X, sec. 12, Constitution of the State of Alaska.

The law calls for the Commission to report its findings to the
Legislature by February 19, 2003.
