The Governor signed Senate Bill 59 into law this week.  I sponsored this bill to expand road access for low-speed vehicles in Alaska communities.  Electric car technology has advanced substantially in recent years. Low-speed vehicles can help reduce carbon dioxide emissions and provide cheaper transportation for Alaskans. There are currently over a dozen of these vehicles operating in Southeast.  I’d like to thank to low-speed vehicle owners Megan and Walt Pasternak of Sitka for bringing this issue to my attention.  I’m pleased the governor signed the bill and hope it will improve sustainable transportation in our region.
