These infrastructure projects include critical airport, highway, road, and bridge improvements; school major maintenance; upgrades and repairs of state facilities, and communication systems. This bill proposes to put the question of issuing these general obligation bonds before qualified voters at a statewide special election to be held 90 to 120 days after adjournment of the First Regular Session of the Thirty-Second Alaska State Legislature. If ratified, these projects will benefit Alaskans statewide by stimulating our economy, stabilizing our construction industry, and improving transportation, education, and other critical facilities throughout the State. I urge your prompt and favorable action on this measure. Sincerely, /s/ Mike Dunleavy Governor"
