It’s Still Possible to Restore Alaska State Funding!

July 3, 2019

Last week, you shared your voice to tell our legislators that you care about Alaska’s future, especially for our children and families.

While the veto override efforts were not successful, there is still hope and time to change our course! The legislature is taking testimony this week on House Bill 2001, which restores the vetoed operating budget that was previously passed by the legislature. See this important bill.
