House Children’s Caucus Gets New Life

April 15, 2019

After a 17 year hiatus, the Alaska House of Representatives recently relaunched the House Children’s Caucus, co-chaired by Rep. Chris Tuck (D-Anchorage) and Rep. Sara Rasmussen (R-Anchorage).

“Because children are at the heart of our communities, we should cherish and protect them at all costs,” said Rep. Tuck. “The earlier we invest in the health and education of children the better the outcomes for our communities. We all share a common desire to see everyone’s children flourish and to make childhood happy and bright for Alaska’s children.”

“Our aim this session is to have a constructive, bipartisan dialogue about the long-term implications of our policies,” said Rep. Rasmussen. “We hope that colleagues from both major caucuses will participate in this endeavor.”
