JUNEAU (AP) -- Anchorage Republican Rep. Andrew Halcro says he won't seek re-election in the fall.
Halcro, 37, said in a statement Sunday that responsibilities to his family and the family business -- the Avis car rental franchise for Alaska -- prevent him from seeking a third term.
Halcro was one of the leaders of a move to enact new taxes to cut the budget gap. He said he was leaving the door open to run for political office in the future.
In the new redistricting plan, Halcro is in the same district with Rep. Norm Rokeberg, also a Republican.
