The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will have a big impact on Alaska for generations to come. Investing in hard infrastructure—roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports big and small, broadband and so much more—connects Alaskans and will allow us to strengthen our economy.

As a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a gun owner myself, it was essential to ensure that this legislation not violate the rights of law-abiding gun owners. It does not. bit.ly/3A2fFHY

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act provides historic investments in our mental health care system & more resources for school safety. There are many misconceptions about what is, & is not, in the measure. This myth vs fact sheet sets the record straight. bit.ly/3yik34k

As a longtime advocate for domestic critical mineral production, I’m proud that $74M—which was largely made possible by the bipartisan infrastructure law—is being directed to research 30 states' potential for critical mineral production, including Alaska. bit.ly/3HMmsai

In Alaska, I hear firsthand the high cost and unreliability of internet. Thanks to my Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, we’re undertaking a historic expansion of broadband infrastructure and accessibility for unserved and underserved areas.

I’m proud to have played a leading role in authoring the new law, especially its broadband provisions, which should deliver more than $1B to AK—ensuring that vital lifelines of communication stay open for Alaskans and that commerce, education, & healthcare are possible for all.

As the Senate considers the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act, it is imperative we strike the balance of taking steps to keep our schools and communities safer, while not infringing on our 2nd Amendment rights.

45 yrs ago the first oil moved through the Trans Alaska Pipeline System. I spoke on the Senate floor to commemorate its success and highlight what this 800-mile-long pipeline continues to mean to Alaska, our nation, and the world. invidious.fdn.fr/waLPcIoKeio

The rise in inflation is hitting record numbers—increasing the cost of everything from food to energy. We could be doing more to help reduce these prices if we were given the opportunity by the Biden administration to produce more of our domestic resources.

While Americans are feeling real pain at the pump, @POTUS is trying to put the blame on Congress rather than taking steps to unleash responsible oil & gas development. @POTUS is undercutting road maintenance funding instead of addressing the root causes. bit.ly/3blcvoi

A gas tax holiday isn’t a real fix & doesn't address our supply problem. It’s another wrongheaded idea equivalent to putting a Band-Aid on a gushing wound & is an attempt to deflect from the administration’s poor policies that are driving up energy prices throughout the country.

The Biden administration should instead be using every tool at its disposal to increase domestic production and take steps to improve our energy security. Alaska is ready and willing to be a key part of that solution.

Happy Summer Solstice, Alaska! To the lower 48ers who are curious: Yes, it is light almost all day in some communities at this time of year. This photo was taken today, around 10PM in Anchorage.☀️ There’s nothing quite like the Midnight Sun. #Alaska #SummerSolstice

As the infant formula shortage continues to threaten the health of our children, we must be flexible and creative in finding solutions.

Southeast Conference supports the communities of Southeast Alaska—constantly working to strengthen industries many rely on. I’m proud to have secured a $2M investment to establish a pilot program for electric ferries, a timely win that strengths our Alaska Marine Highway System.
