NEWS: Alaska House Majority Coalition Supports Disaster Declaration for Opioid Epidemic

Juneau – The members of the Alaska House Majority Coalition commend Governor Walker for his decision to sign a disaster declaration for the worsening opioid epidemic in Alaska. The disaster declaration allows a statewide program under the direction of Alaska’s Chief Medical Officer to facilitate the distribution of the life-saving drug naloxone, which is used to revive overdose victims. Earlier today, Governor Walker signed an Administrative Order that sets up an Incident Command System and directs all state departments to apply for federal grants to respond to the opioid epidemic.

NEWS: Representative Adam Wool Applauds Governor Walker’s Veto of Credit History for Insurance Rate Bill

Fairbanks -- Representative Adam Wool (D-Fairbanks) released the following statement on Governor Walker’s veto of Senate Bill 127: “Alaskans shouldn’t have to fear that when their insurance is renewed, their rates might go up based on their credit history. It doesn’t make sense to change someone’s insurance rates on this irrelevant factor without their consent. Your credit history doesn’t affect whether or not you’re a safe driver or responsible homeowner. I’m pleased Governor Walker vetoed this harmful piece of legislation,” said Rep. Wool.
