Rep. Adam Wool E-News Update: First Special Session Ends- Permanent Fund Working Group Holding Meetings

Summer is underway in Fairbanks, with many bright and sunny days ahead of us! Meanwhile, the Governor’s Special Session has concluded, and Legislators have headed home from Juneau. I am looking forward to being home more often during this beautiful time of year, but there is unfinished business that the Legislature is working on. Right now, I am serving on a working group made up of four House and four Senate members to explore the history of the Permanent Fund and ask critical questions. We have had only a few meetings so far, but I am optimistic that the conversations will contribute to better decision making for the future of the PFD.

Rep. Adam Wool’s E-News: Update from Juneau

I’m back in Juneau for session and although this session has started out in a most unusual way it is good to be here. The House hasn’t organized into a majority/minority structure yet as many of you know, but hopefully it will be happening soon. Once a majority is formed and a speaker is chosen we will all get our committee assignments. The one bill we all work on, and that must be passed by law, is the budget. We aren’t expected

Rep. Adam Wool E-News Update: What to Expect when Expecting a New Legislature

The session for the 31rst Alaska State Legislature will begin on January 15, 2019. This is the time when legislators, both newly elected and re-elected, begin to prioritize their efforts for the coming year.
