JUNEAU (AP) -- The Alaska Senate wants the Air Force to send its newest fighter planes to Elmendorf Air Force Base.
The Air Force is developing the F-22 Raptor to replace many of its aging F-15 fighters.
A resolution sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Loren Leman, R-Anchorage, encourages the Air Force to select Elmendorf Air Force Base for deployment of the new plane.
But even though the measure passed 18-0 on Tuesday, it doesn't compel anyone to do anything. Nonbinding resolutions simply signal the Legislature's intent.
