Rep. Claman’s Newsletter: Constituent pizza party in photos, Budget presentations

Thank you to everyone who attended my Constituent Pizza Party last weekend with Senator Costello and Representative Vazquez. It was great to reconnect with many West Anchorage friends and neighbors. With 24 days left in the 90 day legislative session, we have lots of work ahead. The conversations from last weekend will help guide many of my decisions as your representative in the weeks ahead.

Rep. Claman’s Newsletter: Constituent Pizza Party on Sunday Afternoon; Medicaid Reform and Expansion, and WWAMI

On Tuesday, Governor Walker introduced a Medicaid expansion and reform bill. Earlier this session, I explained in this electronic newsletter why I support increasing access to affordable healthcare to more Alaskans while boosting our state’s economy. Over 75% of those who responded to our constituent survey support Medicaid expansion. I will continue to support Medicaid expansion for those reasons.

Rep. Claman’s Newsletter: Operating Budget Continues

The House voted on the Operating Budget just after midnight on Thursday night and it is now on its way to the Senate for further consideration. I have some concerns with this version of the budget in light of the substantial cuts already proposed by the Walker-Mallott Administration. Approving the budget is a continuing process that we will follow closely in the weeks ahead. As always, I value feedback from West Anchorage residents and neighbors in order to better represent you. Please let me know if you ever have any issues or concerns!

Rep. Claman’s Newsletter: The Budget- Process and Public Testimony, Anchorage Caucus Recap, Survey

Everyone in the Legislature understands that the budget is the most important issue that we will consider this year. We are now 44 days into the 90 day legislative session, and you now have the opportunity to exercise your right to be heard on the budget. The Legislature is in the process of making tough decisions about government programs and services, the level at which we will fund programs and changes, and how to continue a strong state economy. Hearing from you about your thoughts and suggestions about the budget is always helpful as we continue to discuss and make decisions about the budget.
