AS 44.88.085. Administrative Procedure.

(a) Except for AS 44.62.310 and 44.62.312 regarding public meetings, the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act regarding the adoption of regulations (AS 44.62.040 - 44.62.320) do not apply to the authority. The authority shall make available to members of the public copies of the regulations adopted under this section. Within 45 days after adoption of a regulation under this section, the chairman of the authority shall submit the regulation adopted to the chairman of the Administrative Regulation Review Committee under AS 24.20.400 - 24.20.460.

(b) The authority may adopt regulations under this section by motion or by resolution or in any other manner permitted by its bylaws.

(c) The authority may adopt regulations to carry out the purposes of this chapter and shall adopt regulations as provided in (g) of this section.

(d) Except as provided in (e) of this section, at least 15 days before the adoption, amendment, or repeal of a regulation, the authority shall give public notice of the proposed action by publishing the notice in at least three newspapers of general circulation in the state and by mailing a copy of the notice to every person who has filed a request for notice of proposed regulations with the authority. The public notice must include a statement of the time, place, and nature of the proceedings for the adoption, amendment, or repeal of the regulation and must include an informative summary of the subject of the proposed action. On the date and at the time and place designated in the notice, the authority shall give each interested person or an authorized representative of the person, or both, the opportunity to present statements, arguments, or contentions orally or in writing and shall give members of the public an opportunity to present oral statements, arguments, or contentions for a total period of at least one hour. The authority shall consider all relevant matter presented to it before taking the proposed action on the regulation. At a hearing under this subsection, the authority may continue or postpone the hearing to a time and place determined by the authority and announced at the hearing before taking the action to continue or postpone the hearing. A regulation adopted, amended, or repealed by the authority may vary from the informative summary specified in this subsection if the subject matter of the action taken on the regulation remains the same and if the original notice of the proposed action was written so as to assure that members of the public are reasonably notified of the subject matter of the proposed action in order for them to determine whether their interests could be affected by the authority's proposed action on that subject.

(e) The adoption, amendment, or repeal of a regulation may be made as an emergency regulation if, in the order of adoption, the authority states the facts constituting the emergency and makes a finding that the adoption of the regulation is necessary for the immediate preservation of the orderly operation of the authority's programs. The requirements of (d) of this section do not apply to the initial adoption of an emergency regulation; however, upon adoption of an emergency regulation under this subsection, the authority shall, within 10 days after that adoption, publish notice of the adoption in accordance with the notice procedures specified in (d) of this section. An emergency regulation adopted under this subsection may not remain in effect for more than 120 days unless, before the expiration of that period, the authority adopts that regulation as a permanent regulation in accordance with the procedures specified in (d) of this section.

(f) A regulation adopted under this section takes effect immediately upon its adoption by the authority or at another time specified by the authority in its order of adoption.

(g) The authority shall adopt regulations necessary for the following purposes in connection with its programs for the financing of projects under AS 44.88.155 - 44.88.159:

(1) determination of borrower eligibility;

(2) loan guidelines and terms, including

(A) maximum loan amounts;

(B) required loan-to-value ratios; and

(C) a method for determining loan interest rates;

(3) characteristics of projects eligible for loans or purchase of loans; and

(4) the qualifications of loan originators and servicers and the method of allocating amounts available for the purchase of loans.

(h) [Repealed, Sec. 21 ch 109 SLA 1998].
