Personal Legislation

SB 84 ~ Language Immersion Schools

As a father, I know firsthand that children are not only my future, but Alaska’s future. For that future to be sound, we need to encourage our children to seek a further understanding of the world around them: how it operates, different viewpoints, and how diversity makes us stronger. Having students not only learn a second language but be immersed in a second language creates a greater capacity for growth.

SB 159 ~ Indigenous Peoples Day

SB 159 is designed to honor the indigenous peoples of the state as the first to inhabit the land. This legislation recognizes how indigenous people have shaped both the creation and continuing existence of the state by sharing wisdom, labor, knowledge and many personal and cultural achievements.
