Your Chance to Testify for Education Funding

As many of you have requested, I am providing you with details on how to make your voices heard. Please see the information below:

Public Input on Education Legislation

Last week I mentioned that the House Education Committee will be accepting public testimony on HB 65, a bill that I am proudly co-sponsoring. Representative Ortiz’s bill proposes raising the BSA (Base Student Allocation) by $1,250. 

The committee will be accepting public testimony this Tuesday, March 21st from 5:15 to 7:15pm. If you would like to share your views on education, please attend and share your views on this bill and Alaska’s education system. The public can give input by calling 844-586-9085. When the switchboard operator answers, please state that you would like to testify on HB 65. Individuals can also testify in-person at the Fairbanks Legislative Information Office (LIO), 1292 Sadler Way, Suite 308. Facebook Event

If you cannot make Tuesday's hearing, you can email public comments to the committee at:

In other education related testimony, the Senate Labor and Commerce Committee will hear public testimony on Senate Bill 88, a return to a defined benefits retirement for all Alaska public employees on Monday, March 20, and Wednesday, March 22 at 1:30 PM. If you are interested in sharing your thoughts on this legislation, you may contact Fairbanks LIO or my office for further details.

Thank you for staying engaged.


As you prepare to complete your 2022 federal tax return, remember that $662 of last years dividend (the energy relief portion) is not taxable. Check here for further information.

Also the deadline [March 31] to apply for this year's Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend is fast approaching!

Please feel welcome to visit my office in person or to give me a call anytime. We are here to help.

In humble service to the People of Fairbanks,
