  • Health Care Price Transparency: Public Comments due September 27, 2019
  • Constituent Coffee Saturday, September 14, 2019
Back to School & New School Zone Ordinance
School started this week, which means school zones are now in effect in the morning before school and in the afternoon when kids are coming home from school. The Municipality of Anchorage passed an ordinance, AO No. 2019-51(S) , that prohibits cell phone use while driving through a school zone.

The Muni has also provided a handy fact sheet in case you have any questions.
Last fall, I read "Grace for President" to classes and then donated the book to all the elementary school libraries in our district. I love to read to students, so let me know if you'd like me to come read to your class.
DHSS Public Comment Period for Health Care Price Transparency Regulations
The Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) has proposed regulations to implement my health care price transparency policy passed in 2018. The approval process includes gathering public comment on the regulations

You can see the draft regulations here and submit comments to DHSS, Division of Public Health, Health Analytics & Vital Records:

The comments need to be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m. on September 27, 2019.
Come on out to my monthly constituent coffee for news on the budget, special session and answers to any questions you might have. As always, bring shelf-stable food for Immanuel Presbyterian's food pantry, and I will bring coffee and snacks for you!
Keep in touch!
