The Alaska Legislature is currently considering a bill that would join Alaska in an interstate compact changing the way the United States President is elected. I have serious concerns about its true, negative, effects. The bill's supporters promote the change as a way to ensure that "the person with the most votes wins." I have participated in two hearings on Senate Bill 39 in the Senate State Affairs committee, and have researched the issue extensively. Again, I have serious concerns about the negative effects of this legislation on Alaska.
