AS 40.25.123

Editor's note: As of Register 176 (January 2006), and acting under AS 44.62.125 (b)(6), the regulations attorney relocated former 6 AAC 96.210 to 2 AAC 96.210, and made conforming technical changes to 2 AAC 96.210(c) (3) and (d), to reflect Executive Order 113 (2005). Executive Order 113 eliminated the Telecommunications Information Council and transferred its functions to the governor and to the Department of Administration. The history note for 2 AAC 96.210 carries forward the history from former 6 AAC 96.210.

As of Register 158 (July 2001), the regulations attorney made technical revisions under AS 44.62.125 (b)(6), to reflect the 2000 renumbering of former AS 09.25.100 - 09.25.220 by the revisor of statutes. The provisions of former AS 09.25.100 - 09.25.220 were relocated to AS 40.25.100 - 40.25.220.
