Alaska Says: No Frankenfish!

I am a proud supporter of our military men and women. I serve on is the Joint Armed Services committee where the Alaska Command gave the legislature an update. Following the meeting, I had the chance to meet General Katkus.

HJR 5 passes the House with unanimous support!

Last week, Clark Pelz of Airport Heights was in Juneau lobbying for the Alaska Botanical Garden.
We love our constituents!

Last week, Clark Pelz of Airport Heights was in Juneau lobbying for the Alaska Botanical Garden.

This week was very exciting for me. I introduced House Joint Resolution 5 at the beginning of session to oppose the federal Food and Drug Administration’s approval of Genetically Modified Salmon in the United States. This action brings the 28th Alaska State Legislature one step closer to joining the Alaska Congressional Delegation and the governor in standing with Alaska’s fishermen against “Frankenfish.” The resolution now goes to the Senate.
