A New Session Brings Hope for Solutions
The 2020 legislative session begins this afternoon when lawmakers from across Alaska gather in Juneau to do the people’s business. I hope that every member of the House and Senate is ready to work because that’s what it will take to overcome the significant fiscal and political hurdles facing our state.
In the coming days and weeks, you will hear a lot from me, but I want to hear from you. If you find yourself in Juneau, please come see me. My office in the State Capitol Building is easy to find. All you have to do is walk up the Capitol Steps and take a left. You will see my office at the end of the hall. My office number in Juneau is (907) 465-2095 or toll-free at 1-866-465-2095. My email address is Rep.Chris.Tuck@akleg.gov. My duty is to represent you, so please share your views. I look forward to hearing from you.
File for Your 2020 PFD

The easiest way to file is online at pfd.alaska.gov. However, you can still file for a PFD with a paper application that can be found at locations across the state, including Legislative Information Offices, public libraries, senior center, and municipal offices. If you need help with the process, you can always visit the Dividend Information Office in Anchorage at 655 F Street or call (907) 269-0370.
Constituent Fares to Visit the State Capital

To make it easier for Alaskans to be part of the decision-making process in Juneau, Alaska Airlines offers discounted flights to the capital city with their Club 49 Constituent Fare. If you take advantage of a constituent fare, please visit my office on the ground floor of the State Capitol in Room 24.
