Tonight! An Invitation to Testify on SB54- Public Safety Fixes

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

An Invitation to Testify on SB54

As much as I loved being home in Airport Heights, we’re now all back in Juneau for the fourth special session! We hit the ground running yesterday, working on SB 54, the revision to our crime bill. I know the last few months have been hard for our state, I know Alaska’s crime rates have all of us feeling anxious, and public safety is an ever-growing concern; because of this, I wanted to reach out and remind all of you of an opportunity tonight to voice your opinions on this bill and let us know how you feel. We’re here for you.

Members of the public can testify from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. tonight at Legislative Information Offices (LIO) across the state or in person at the State Capitol Building in Juneau. Those that cannot make it to an LIO can testify via teleconference by calling (907) 563-9085 in Anchorage, (907) 586-9085 in Juneau, or toll-free at 844-586-9085 for those calling from outside of Anchorage or Juneau.
