A Note From Gov. Walker…
Fellow Alaskan –
Increasing hours of daylight, the start of the Iditarod, fresh snow across Alaska – it feels good to be home after attending the National Governors Association (NGA) in Washington D.C.
Each year at NGA, I connect with Governors from across the United States. We come together to tackle issues that face our constituents without the politics that can divide us. These connections, beyond party lines, led to the work I did with Governor Kasich (R-OH) and Governor Hickenlooper (D-CO) when we released the bipartisan health care blueprint. Through NGA and back home, I continue to work on solutions that benefit all Alaskans.
This week has been all about Alaska and the Iditarod, from attending the Mushers Banquet, the Ceremonial Start in Anchorage and traveling to Willow for the official start. Donna and I wish all the mushers safe and swift travels to Nome.
As we continue to move forward with progress on the Alaska LNG gasline, we recognize the demand for LNG worldwide. We acknowledge and are aware of the potential for LNG shortage by mid-2020’s and continue work on the project to have Alaska LNG to the market by that time.
