Alaska will offer tourists vaccinations starting on June 1 as part of the state’s plan to assist tourism-related businesses.
Sen. Mike Shower said he wants to increase voters’ confidence in the voting system.
People working on behalf of Anchorage’s government contacted individuals about COVID-19 vaccine information, according to the governor’s office. The municipality received the names and contact information from state Department of Health and Social Services staff, the office said.
The end of the month is the deadline for the Legislature to pass a bill — and for Dunleavy to sign it — or low-income Alaskans will lose $8 million in additional food aid.
Dunleavy signed a resolution asking Congress and President Biden to exempt Alaska from a federal law that requires cruise ships headed to Alaska to stop in Canada.
A Tlingit language scholar said the word “preservation” should be taken out of the council’s name because it is trying to revitalize languages, not just preserve them.
Commerce Commissioner Julie Anderson said she’s spoken to cruise industry members who said there still could be Alaska cruises in August or September.
The ruling reverses a Superior Court decision that 94 positions filled by Dunleavy appointees had been vacated in December.
The gathering was in the gymnasium in the Terry Miller Legislative Office Building, which is across 5th Street from the Capitol.
While there have been some significant changes to what Dunleavy proposed, they’re far less extensive than the changes two years ago.
