If a builder fails to acknowledge receipt of the notice of a claim within the time specified, elects not to go through the process set forth in this chapter, or fails to request an inspection within the time specified, or at the conclusion or cessation of an alternative nonadversarial proceeding, this chapter does not apply and the homeowner is released from the requirements of this chapter and may proceed with the filing of an action. ?However, the standards set forth in the other chapters of this title shall continue to apply to the action.

(a)?Immediately following a determination by the commissioner that the minority residents of a zone are economically disadvantaged, and for the next two fiscal years after the determination, qualified minority residents of the zone who are eligible under AS 36.10.140 shall be given preference in hiring for at least 25 percent, or a percent representative of the civilian minority residents in the zone, whichever is greater, of employment on each project under AS 36.10.180 that is wholly or partially sited within the zone. ?The preference applies on a craft-by-craft or occupational basis.

(b)?The commissioner shall determine that the minority residents of a zone are economically disadvantaged if the commissioner finds that

(1)?the percentage of civilian minority residents in the zone exceeds the percentage of civilian minority residents in the state;

(2)?either the percent of unemployment of civilian minority residents of the zone is at least two times the percent of unemployment of nonminority residents of the zone or the civilian minority population of the zone has suffered past economic discrimination;

(3)?the economic disadvantage of civilian minority residents of the zone has substantially contributed to serious social or economic problems in the zone; ?and

(4)?employment of workers who are not residents is a peculiar source of unemployment of civilian minority residents of the zone.

(c)?In this section, a person is considered to be a member of a minority if the person is Hispanic, Asian or Pacific Islander, American Indian or Alaskan Native, or Black as those terms are defined by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
