On the PFD
I have received several questions about this year’s Permanent Fund Dividend, the proposed legislation by Governor Mike Dunleavy to restore the full amount of the Permanent Fund Dividend this year.
I favor and fully support Gov. Dunleavy’s legislation that will restore this years' Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) amount to approx, $3000.00, as originally calculated by the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation, as it is presently the law.
Restoring the full amount of the permanent fund dividend will help restore the trust of the people, help the economy during the Covid-19 mandates.
On Binding Caucuses
I feel we must pass a bill and a resolution for the legislature to abide by to eliminate the binding caucus rule in our Alaska State Legislature. I will not pledge my vote unconditionally at the expense of what is best for the people I serve in trade for committee chairmanships.
I believe life begins at conception and abortion is the killing of a living human being. Voting for a bill that will help stop any form of abortion is important to me. My constantly voting only for the "all or nothing approach" which never has the 21 votes to become law, is leading to children continually dying each year. So, whenever there is enough legislative votes to stop a large number of abortions, then I will vote to support that law also.
2nd Amendment Rights
As you all know I believe in our second amendment rights. I have sponsored and co-sponsored bills that give an 18 year old who can die for our country the right to purchase a hand gun or to protect your right to defensively display your weapon to protect your property without fear of litigation for intimidating others.
I believe in our 2nd Amendment Right to defend: our homes, our property, our loved ones and to feed our families which is also the God given freedom, liberty and tradition of all American Citizens.
Constitutional Amendment to Cap Spending
The only way we can protect our Permanent Fund and Provide for the State of Alaska is through a Constitutional Spending Cap. Resetting the existing cap is a major problem for legislators who can't stop spending but it must happen this year.
