Yesterday, July 27, the Legislature finally passed SB 23, the capital budget, which funds infrastructure projects across the state. I joined the majority of my House colleagues, who voted in favor 27 to 13. The Senate vote was 15-4. I’m glad the Legislature passed this bill before August 1, after which the Governor said projects could be delayed. This capital budget will create some much needed jobs in the Fairbanks area and around the state.
