Under the authority of art. III, section 1 of the Alaska Constitution,
I am today establishing a Bodily Injury Reparations Advisory
Committee, composed of 19 members who represent a broad spectrum
of consumer and provider interests, including 4 members of the
Legislature (2 from each house). Members, except for legislative

(2) legal principles of bodily injury reparation;
(3) legal procedures and expenses;
(4) the functioning of bodily injury insurance systems;
(5) the availability of insurance;

The committee shall prepare and submit to the governor by
