Editor's note: Some regulations in this chapter, which was reorganized and revised in 1996, were further changed, effective 10/29/98, and distributed in Register 148.

The regulations in this chapter, effective 1/28/96, and distributed in Register 137, constitute a comprehensive reorganization and revision of this material. They replace all previous regulations in this chapter that were repealed simultaneously with the adoption of these regulations. The history line at the end of each section does not reflect the history of the replaced provisions before 1/28/96, nor is the section numbering related to the numbering before that date. Some section numbers in this revision were used in previous versions, but the current sections with those numbers are not necessarily related to the previous section numbers. Previous versions of this chapter, and amendments to those versions, may be reviewed at the Office of the Lieutenant Governor and may be found at Register 47, effective 7/19/73; Register 67, effective 8/21/78; Register 88, effective 10/9/83; Register 103, effective 9/20/87.

As of Register 151 (October 1999), the functions of the former Department of Community and Regional Affairs were transferred to other state agences. Revisions to regulations to reflect changes in state agencies' names were made by the regulations attorney in accordance with ch. 58, SLA 1999 and AS 44.62.125 (b)(6).
