Rep. Pruitt Statement on Governor Adding SB 54 to Call
Friday, September 15, 2017, Anchorage, Alaska – Representative Lance Pruitt (R-Anchorage) released the following statement thanking the governor for adding Senate Bill 54 to the October Special Session Call.
“Thank you for protecting Alaskans by adding SB 54 to the call of this special session. While I do not believe this legislation goes far enough, it is a step in the right direction. The needed reforms of SB 91 cannot wait another year; a year sure to be monopolized by discussions of the FY19 budget and other measures.
During SB 91’s passage I warned we were heading towards a perfect storm for crime in Alaska, and the changes we made to our justice system sent a message that Alaska was open season for criminals. We must now send an even louder message that Alaska is an unwelcome place for those preying on residents and businesses in our state. “
