This time at home - visiting remote communities as well as urban hubs, using various modes of transportation unique to Alaska, and always being flexible when plans change due to weather - it's all a reminder of how special Alaska is.

The Murkowski Memo August

Dear Alaskan,As we grapple with record inflation and painfully high gas prices, I continue to push the Biden administration to allow Alaska to responsibly develop the resources we have in our own backyard. Approving common sense projects like Willow can help bring down inflation, create jobs, and improve U.S. economic growth. Dealing with the administration is a challenge, but we do have good things coming our way.Over the last month alone, Alaskans have been selected for numerous grants as a re… Continue Reading

Advancing Initiatives for Alaskans

Keeping Connected Hello Alaska! I just returned to Washington D.C. from a brief trip to Anchorage, Eagle River, and the Mat-Su Valley with Senator Sullivan to assess the damage from the 7.0 magnitude earthquake which struck the region on November 30. The words I would use to describe what we saw are gut wrenching, astounding, and remarkable. Gut wrenching, to stand in a school where cinder blocks flew through the walls. Astounding in the sense that in places, the ground literally liquefied, wh… Continue Reading
