Action on Proposal to Reduce Military in Alaska

As Legislator and Chairman of the House Special Committee on Military and Veterans' Affairs, as a military retiree, and as an Alaskan, I am very concerned and distressed about the proposed news of potential military reduction of forces in Alaska, and the shutdown of Kulis National Guard Base in Anchorage. The following is a Press Release announcing the Commiitee hearing in Anchorage.
A hearing will be conducted by the House Special Committee on Military and Veterans' Affairs Committee to determine the impact of the potential closing of Kulis Air Air Guard Base in Anchorage, as well as resuction of military and civilian forces at Elmendorf AFB, Eilson AFB, Fort Richardson, and other military facilities.

The Committee hearing will be scheduled at the Legislative Information Office (LIO) 716 W. 4th Avenue, in Anchorage as soon as practical after the adjoinment of the Special Session in Juneau. "The Commkttee strongly supports the mission of the Alaska National Guard and Alaska's active duty military," said Representative Bob Lynn, Committee Chair. "We are concerned that nothing weakens military performance or unnecessarily hurts the Alaska economy."

For further information, please contact my Chief of Staff Nancy Manly (907) 645-2794.
