The 30th Session of the Alaska State Legislature begins

Our long-time government relations director, Tom Begich, was sworn in yesterday as a newly elected State Senator and while we're sorry to lose his expertise on our team, we are happy to have another ally for public education in the State Senate. To fill this role moving forward, we are pleased to announce that we have contracted with J and H Consulting (Reggie Joule and Christine Hess) to carry on our legislative program this session.

Update

In late night action, after weeks of negotiations, the BSA funding and all early childhood funding for Pre K, Best Beginnings, and Parents as Teachers has been restored, as has some funding for the University of Alaska.
