Dear Neighbors,

My Juneau Office is Open for the Session

The 31st Alaska State Legislature begins on January 15, but my office is already open and ready for business. As the first day draws closer, I want to hear from you! Feel free to come by, give me a call, or send me an email. If I know what your priorities are, then I can better represent you in Juneau as your Senator.

Contact Information for the New Session

My new office is located near the entrance of the State Capitol Room 7. If you can’t make it to Juneau, you can check out the Capitol with this virtual tour. I am available by phone at (907) 456-7423 or by email at On January 15, when I am sworn in as Senator, my new email will be

Pre-filed Legislation: Opportunities for All Alaskans

I want to get to work right when the new Legislature starts next week, which is why I have already introduced four bills that will be ready to move on the first day of session.

  • SB 3: Strengthens sexual assaults penalties to make Alaska safer and hold criminals accountable. Read the press release here.
  • SB 9: Guarantees PFDs for individuals whose criminal convictions have been vacated, reversed or dismissed. In 2017, my bill HB 127 passed the House 38-1 but stalled in the Senate.
  • SB 6: Senator Begich and I are working to create a statewide early education program for children ages 3 to 5. Read the press release here. I introduced pre-kindergarten legislation each of my 6 terms in the House.
  • SB 10: Extends the Statewide Suicide Prevention Council, which aims to improve the health and wellness of Alaskans by reducing suicide and its effect on individuals and communities. Read the press release here.
  • SB 11: Improves the Military Spouse Courtesy Licensing Program so that military spouses can easily transition to life in Alaska, practice their profession and help support their families. Read the press release here. Last year, my bill HB 262 passed the House unanimously and was stopped in the Senate, despite bipartisan support.

Fairbanks Election Outcome: Congratulations, Representative-Elect Bart LeBon!

Bart LeBon has been declared the winner in the race to represent House District 1, which I am vacating to represent Senate District A. I look forward to working closely with Representative-Elect LeBon to continue advocating for the House district that I represented for almost 12 years. Alongside Rep. Steve Thompson representing House District 2, we have a strong team for Fairbanks with diverse experience and dedication to our neighbors and families.

Working Hard for Fairbanks Families,


Representative Scott Kawasaki
