Editor's note: 5 AAC 77.549 was amended 5/6/94 by emergency regulation. Due to technical corrections made by the regulations attorney in reviewing the "permanent" regulation for filing, the permanent regulation as it was published in Register 131, October 1994, differed from the emergency regulation even though the section's history note did not reflect an amendment.
