Alaska Congressional Delegation Welcomes Attorney General William Barr
U.S. Senators Lisa Murkowski, Dan Sullivan, and Congressman Don Young, all R-Alaska, today welcomed Attorney General William Barr to Alaska. Attorney General Barr’s itinerary includes a series of meetings at the federal, tribal, state and local level with a focus on law enforcement and public safety issues, particularly in rural Alaska.
“Public safety and lack of law enforcement are both serious challenges across the state, particularly in Alaska Native communities that are disproportionately impacted by sexual assault and domestic violence cases. We are encouraged to know that the Attorney General is investing the time to meet face-to-face with Alaska tribal officials, elders, and youth to help address these pressing issues,” said the Alaska Congressional Delegation. “As a delegation we have long been committed to ensuring communities, both urban and rural, are safe and secure. We look forward to building on those efforts alongside Attorney General Barr.”
