Representative Hannan’s Legislative Update

I hope this Update finds you doing well. I am amazed how quickly time goes by. With Thanksgiving coming up, the holiday season is upon us. I am currently attending a Women in Government Conference in our nations capitol for first time women lawmakers. I am very proud to be serving as one of 23 female Alaska Law Makers.

Rep. Tuck’s Community Connection: PFD Special Session Doubtful

As our daily sunlight dwindles away, so do hopes for a third special session focused on the Permanent Fund and PFDs. Until recently, I thought a compromise was possible that would allow lawmakers to go back to work to find long-term solutions about how to best use the earnings of the $64 billion Alaska Permanent Fund. However, with no easy path forward and an apparent unwillingness by many to reengage on the issue, another special session this year seems very unlikely.
