The Legislature passed Senate Bill 59 this week. Low-speed vehicles provide effective and sustainable transportation options for Alaskans. I sponsored this bill to expand road access for low-speed vehicles in Alaska communities. There are currently over a dozen of these vehicles operating in Southeast communities. Estimates from DOT suggest this bill will open an additional 30 miles of road throughout Southeast to these vehicles. I’m pleased the legislature enacted this bill, and hope it will improve sustainable transportation in our region.
