Rep. Spohnholz’s Newsletter: Big Things Are Happening!

Throughout the first month of the session we have been holding budget subcommittees which afforded us the opportunity to do high level program overviews. We have been hearing from various departments about what is working, what they can do better, and how we can restructure programs in a way that provides services people are asking for, while making informed choices about the fiscal realities facing the state. These subcommittees are winding down and will soon be releasing their recommendations. Once that happens, we can move forward with educated decision making regarding the state budget. I am resolute in my devotion to passing a sustainable budget with consistent revenue streams that are fair and equitable for all Alaskans.

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.

Rep. Spohnholz’s Newsletter: Things to Celebrate

February is Black History Month, a time when we celebrate the rich history of African Americans in our nation and in our state. I would like to highlight a strong Alaskan African American who was so far ahead of her time in her accomplishments, former State Senator Bettye Davis. I first met SenatorDavis when I was five years old; she worked with my mother at the Division of Family and Youth Services serving foster children.

Rep. Spohnholz’s Newsletter: And We’re Off!

It’s been a whirlwind week getting into the full swing of things. I’ve been meeting with constituents and various organizations from all across the state hearing from people interested in helping to develop responsible, evidence based policy. The budget continues to be the major focus of our non-partisan working coalition in the House. We are committed to having an open conversation between all parties who come to the table with good ideas and good intentions to create a responsible, sustainable budget. We know that’s a tall order, but we are prepared to tackle the budget head on, with all solutions on the table.
