Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I want to be sure that you are aware that public testimony on the House Operating Budget is this Friday, March 4, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the House Finance Committee.

The Cordova Legislative Information Office (LIO) will be open for public testimony during that time.

If you want to avoid the crowds or have difficulties accessing the LIO, please call 1-844-586-9085 to testify. Please sign-in or call 30 minutes prior to the end of the allotted time to ensure you get in the queue.

If you are unable testify on Friday, there will be an additional opportunity Saturday, March 5, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Cordova LIO will be open so feel free to head down or call the number above to testify.

There is a 2-minute time limit per testifier and written comments can be submitted to house.finance@akleg.gov.

Public input is critical to the legislative process. Please voice your support for robust summer and winter marine highway service, strong fisheries management and research, education, public safety, investment in coastal communities, and any other priority in the operating budget that you feel passionate about.

Remember, I work for you. Please contact me about anything that is important to you and your family.

Sincerely,

Rep. Louise Stutes

Proudly serving Kodiak, Cordova, Yakutat and Seldovia.
