The AKAPA Board of Directors and the Legislative Committee is close to finalizing language for legislation that would clear a path towards a more workable collaborative plan and streamlined licensing process. Our next goal is to appeal to Alaska legislators on the House and Senate Health and Social Services (H&SS) committees to sponsor the legislation during the next session.
We are asking for AKAPA members that are constituents of AK House and Senate H&SS committee members listed below to reach out to us and/or attend the next Legislative Committee meeting on Thursday, July 22nd at 7:00 pm. The goal is to group H&SS committee member constituents together and pair the groups with a board or legislative committee member to further discuss advocacy and to set up meetings with H&SS committee members to discuss the legislation.
Below is a list of House and Senate H&SS Committee members
