Rep. Kawasaki's Juneau Note

Rep. Kawasaki’s Newsletter: Legislative Session Begins in Juneau

This year will be a busy one for the Alaska Legislature as we tackle a huge budget shortfall, falling oil production and uncertainty. Alaska has had tough times before and we have survived and thrived. We have done so, because we were able to work together, shed our partisan blinders and become a better government.

I believe that if the Legislature works together we can come up with proposals that work for Alaska. I want to reassure you that I will be working overtime with my colleagues to come up with a solution that is fair to all Alaskans.
