• We protected forward-funding for education, ensuring Governor Dunleavy can't veto it.
  • We passed some Medicaid reductions, but rejected the unrealistic and destructive Dunleavy proposal that would have destroyed thousands of jobs and potentially eliminated health care for tens of thousands of Alaskans.
  • The Pioneer Homes have adequate funding to eliminate the need for massive rate increases (with that said, we should pass my bill, HB 96, to prohibit such increases as proposed by Dunleavy from taking place in the future).
  • We added prosecutors and public defenders to improve public safety.
  • We blocked the large property tax increase which would have resulted from complete elimination of school bond debt reimbursement.
  • We rejected massive cuts that would have closed multiple University campuses, though the budget did contain $10 million in UA cuts.
  • We rejected cuts to Alaska Public Media, which is a critical institution for emergency response in our state.
  • We also rejected cuts to Alaska Legal Services, which plays a key role in reducing domestic violence.
