ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 168
OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR
September 16, 1996
I, Tony Knowles, Governor of the State of Alaska, under the
authority of art. III, sec. 1 of the Alaska Constitution, hereby
amend my Administrative Order No.165.
On July 11, 1996, I signed Administrative Order No.165 creating
the Governor's Advisory Task Force on Civil Justice Reform (Advisory
Task Force). Under Administrative Order No.165, the Advisory
Task Force was established as a 15-member body. The purpose of
this Administrative Order is to amend Administrative Order No.
165 to increase the Advisory Task Force from 15 members to 21
members, including five voting ex officio members. The Advisory
Task Force needs' an increase in membership in order to accommodate
the heavy work load placed upon the Advisory Task Force. Under
Administrative Order No.165, the Advisory Task Force must review
and provide recommendations on complex issues relating to the
Alaska civil justice system in a very compressed time period.
COMPOSITION OF ADVISORY TASK FORCE
Therefore, Administrative Order No.165 is amended to provide
that the Governor's Advisory Task Force on Civil Justice Reform
consists of the following members:
(1) sixteen members appointed by the governor; and
(2) five ex officio members, as follows:
(a) the attorney general;
(b) the deputy commissioner of the Department of Commerce and
(c) the director of the Division of Risk Management in the
Department of Administration; and
(d) two legislators appointed by the governor.
This order takes effect immediately.
Dated this 16th day of September, 1996.
