The Senate passed Senate Bill 244 this morning.  This bill sets Juneau as the Governor’s official duty station in state law.  All state employees, except the Governor and Lt. Governor, have a defined location where their job is based.  I introduced this bill with Senator Egan to clarify a long-standing precedent that the Governor should be based in Alaska’s Capital City.  It’s important to have this tradition affirmed in state law. I’m pleased the Senate passed the bill, and will work to advance the legislation in the state house in the coming weeks.
