Editor's note: The regulations in 18 AAC 72.005 - 18 AAC 72.280 and 18 AAC 72.400 - 18 AAC 72.440, effective April 1, 1999 and distributed in Register 149, constitute a comprehensive reorganization and revision of material formerly set out at 18 AAC 72.010 - 18 AAC 72.285. The regulations at 18 AAC 72.005 - 18 AAC 72.280 and 18 AAC 72.400 - 18 AAC 72.440 replace former 18 AAC 72.010 - 18 AAC 72.285, which were repealed simultaneously with the adoption of these regulations.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 April 1, 1999. Some section numbers in this revision were used for previous regulations, but current sections are not necessarily related to previous sections with the same section number. Earlier versions of 18 AAC 72.005 - 18 AAC 72.280 may be reviewed at the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, and may be found at the following registers: Register 47, 8/10/73; Register 61, 2/3/77; Register 65, 3/4/78; Register 69, 2/2/79; Register 84, 12/30/83; Register 93, 3/30/85; Register 102, 6/18/87; Register 114, 6/30/90; Register 125, 2/19/93; Register 132, 11/10/94; Register 142, 4/18/97.

Additionally, the regulations in 18 AAC 72, effective June 30, 1990 and distributed in Register 114, constituted a comprehensive reorganization and revision of the material in this chapter. The regulations effective on that date replaced former 18 AAC 72, which was repealed simultaneously with the adoption of those regulations. The history lines at the end of 18 AAC 72.299 - 18 AAC 72.385 and 18 AAC 72.500 - 18 AAC 72.990 do not reflect the history of replaced provisions, if any, before June 30, 1990. Some section numbers in the revision of June 30, 1990 may have been used for regulations existing before that date, but current sections are not necessarily related to previous sections with the same section number. Versions of 18 AAC 72 that preceded the June 30, 1990 comprehensive revision and reorganization may be reviewed at the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, and may be found at the following registers: Register 47, 8/10/73; Register 61, 2/3/77; Register 65, 3/4/78; Register 69, 2/2/79; Register 84, 12/30/83; Register 93, 3/30/85; Register 102, 6/18/87.

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).
