Rep. Bob Miller’s Newsletter: Hello from Juneau; Focus; Stay in Touch; Looking Forward;

Hello from Juneau! The 2012 Legislative Session is only a few days in, but the busy schedule has already kicked into high gear. You can expect regular newsletter updates from me throughout the session, updating you on meetings I have, bills I’m sponsoring, and other legislative activity.

I will continue to sit on four committees: Health and Social Services, Labor and Commerce, Fisheries, and Military and Veterans Affairs. I am anxious to continue the work begun last year, and to keep focus on those issues most important to those of us lucky enough to live in Fairbanks!

Rep. Kerttula’s Juneau News: Capitol Shows Signs of Life as Session Approaches

Taku Task Force Meetings, Prefiled Legislation Released

We’re just 11 days away from the beginning of the second session of the 27th Alaska State Legislature. Today the cross-gulf ferry arrived with several legislators and staff aboard, the first wave of “leggies” that will soon fill the halls of the capitol building. What was yesterday a sleepy building with only a few offices open on each floor is now buzzing. Boxes of computers and office files will soon fill the halls as everyone unpacks for the session. It is an exciting time of year and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone and getting to work!

Last night, the Taku River Fact Finding Task Force formed by the Juneau Legislative Delegation met for the first time and I’ll share a little about that and future meetings with you in this newsletter.

Today, the first batch of prefiled legislation was released for review and I’ll give you a link and some highlights.

Note from Rep. Gara: Holiday Laptop Drive a Success, So We’re Extending It Another 364 Days! And Other Volunteer Opportunities.

I hope you’re having a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah and all around good holiday season. And I wanted to let you in on some good holiday news (and one more volunteer opportunity you might like).

Here’s what you don’t want to know. I also found out how long it takes to work off a typical Christmas and Holiday dinner, cookie and bowls of pistachio nut diet. That’s what I’d classify as annoying news. So, really, why dwell on it. I’ll just take this one for the team, suffer alone, and keep that information to myself. And… I will be off to the gym after we get this letter out.
