House speaker earns praise

I want to express my sincere appreciation to Speaker Mike Chenault for his sound leadership during the legislative session. Speaker Chenault worked closely with our administration and passed significant legislation to advance an in-state natural gasline. As leader of the House, Speaker Chenault maintained that necessary statewide perspective, while zealously representing your interests on the Kenai Peninsula.

Your Peninsula delegation also worked hard to uphold Second Amendment rights; to bring new oil production on-line so our children and grandchildren can benefit; to better protect Alaskans from federal overreach in permitting, and they joined me in cutting state government spending by 15 percent, by over $1 billion. Thank you to Speaker Chenault and the entire Peninsula delegation for working to create a future for all Alaskans.

Respectfully,

Sean Parnell

Governor
