Calm time has passed now the heat is on by Dan Joling staff writer Juneau Fairbanks rep.

A they already Cut the University so badly a Koponen said of his top priority unlike his Coll guest pet projects which apparently were threatened with quiet death if they dared vote to expand a local hire Bill that eventually passed the House Friday. A that was the kind of pressure that was put on a Koponen said and it worked As the amendment failed. Such Are the ways of pressure cooker politics in the final Days of the session. After 136 Days of rela Tive Calm the heat was turned up a dozen notches Friday. The pressure and whirlwind Pace of legislation will continue today As attention changes from local hire and subsistence issues to the state spending and anything else that legislators Hope to see become state Law. Friday afternoon the drama first focused on the Senate which narrowly voted to eliminate a needs test for determining preference in subsistence Hunting and fishing. Then in the House labor leaders tried in vain to hold on to votes previously committed to expanding the local hire Bill. Gov. Bill Sheffield called one of the shortest press conferences in Alaska history to read a blistering attack on finance co chairwoman Jan Faiks a Anchorage who was made out to be the villain. A what id like for the press to do is do your Job this afternoon go downstairs and when House Mem Bers go on the floor ask those House members if they a re going to vote for Jan Faiks and Oil Field service company Veco or if they re going to vote for the working people of Alaska a Sheffield said. Faiks distributed her own statement noting that Alaska preferential hire on resource development projects on state land had received less than half the committee hearings of the main Bill. She said it probably would not withstand a constitutional Challenge. She also denied threatening House Bills or projects but House members weren to buying it. Before the vote House majority Leader Don Clocksin a Anchorage called senators actions a a virtually unprecedented invasion of the House by members of the other the vote on the amendment split generally along majority minority lines with Bush caucus members joining the minority republicans in voting no. Mano Frey executive president of the Alaska Al Cio. Saw a link Between the Bush vote and Faiks possible support of $60 million for Rural sewer and water projects. He said no votes by rep. Peter Goll d Haines and rep. Bette Cato a Valdez were the direct result of threats against sewer and water projects desired by Goll and a Prince William sound fish processing Bill desired by Cato. A a they re actually being blackmailed by Jan Faiks a he said. Interior legislators split 4-2, with rep. John Ringstad a Fairbanks and rep. Dick Shultz r Tok voting no. The Madcap Pace continues today at 7 . And May even finish by tonight if predictions by Senate see heat Back Page
