Dear Friends and Neighbors,
It’s Day 38 of the legislative session.
I’ll be back in Anchorage this weekend and you’ll have lots of chances to tell me how you think I’m doing. I want to hear your ideas, so I hope to see you at one of my Town Hall meetings – see the times below.
The oil tax debate rages on. In what one publication is calling the “Broil Over Oil”, at the invitation of the Chamber of Commerce, I will be debating the Chamber President, Andrew Halcro, this Monday at the Dena’ina Center at high noon. I can guarantee you this – it will be lively and informative. Please feel free to come on down.

New Website – SenatorBill.org
Let’s face it, my last name isn’t the easiest to spell. So I am happy to share with you a new website that my staff and I have been working hard to develop – SenatorBill.org. This website is designed to update you on legislative issues, track events in East Anchorage and provide a central location to find valuable information about state government.
We will continue expanding and developing our website, so please continue to check back.
