Today Governor Palin signed my ethics bills HB281 and HB368 into law, along with other bills I co-sponsored. HB281 increased the Statute of Limitations for campaign contribution and expenditure reporting from one year up to five years. The previous governor had convinced the legislature to reduce the then four years down to one year - which I’m proud to report I had voted against. HB368 was basically a fix-it bill that became important for what was not included. See previous blogs. The ethics bill signings were at the courthouse in Anchorage - an appropriate location.

Governor Palin’s next bill signing was at the Anchorage Congregation Beth Sholom Jewish Synagogue, where she did a ceremonial signing of the resolution honoring the sixtieth birthday of Israel. She also signed a bill by Rep. Max Gruenberg outlawing DVDs visible to vehicle drivers. I was a co-sponsor this legislation.

The photos show me speaking at the courthouse ceremony about my ethics bills, a TV interview b y Channel 13, and my speaking on Israel’s birthday at the synagogue.
