Begich wants vessel to serve as museum


JUNEAU -- U.S. Sen. Mark Begich is recommending that the Coast Guard convey the decommissioned cutter Storis for use as a maritime museum in Juneau. KINY-AM reports the Alaska Democrat sent the commandant of the Coast Guard a letter seeking conveyance of the vessel.

Begich Statement on Election Results


U.S. Sen. Mark Begich released the following statement commenting on the results of the 2010 general election: “I believe voters want their elected officials, both in Alaska and in Washington, D.C., to look beyond political labels and focus on what’s important to Alaskans: getting our economy back on track, creating jobs, improving schools, and reducing energy costs. I’m talking to my Senate colleagues this week about doing exactly that and am eager to get back to work when the Senate reconvenes next week. “I’ve always said that despite our different ...

U.S. Senator Mark released the following statement today in response to the Department of Energy granting long term authorization to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) by vessel from the proposed Alaska LNG Project in the Nikiski Area of the Kenai Peninsula to Free Trade Agreement Nations. “This is great news for Alaska’s economy and another step forward for a project that will create thousands of Alaska jobs, keep heating and energy prices down, and boost state revenues,” said Begich.  “Thanks to Secretary Moniz for coming to Alaska with me this summer to hear from affected Alaskans firsthand – I hope for more good news soon and will keep pushing for a smooth permitting process in the future.”   Senator Begich and Department of Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz meet with LNG project stakeholders in Anchorage in August.

U.S. Senator Mark Begich today released the following statement on the nuclear negotiations between Iran and the P5+1, a group of six world powers, including the U.S.. “We need a real and effective agreement to dismantle Iran’s nuclear program, and sanctions should not be relaxed until Iran complies with such an agreement.  I have supported bipartisan legislation on sanctions including cosponsoring S. 1881, the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act, and I believe Congress should act if Iran fails to agree to adequate measures.”   ###
Begich Statement on Native American Heritage Month
In honor of Native American Heritage month, I extend my appreciation and respect for Alaska’s First Peoples.  Our great state is home to a remarkable 229 federally recognized tribes, each of which vary in cultural background and traditions.  Our Alaska Native community has shaped the history of our state and has contributed to the framework of our vibrant Alaskan culture. As a lifelong Alaskan and strong advocate of Native rights, I have worked hard to make sure my support for Native issues is clear.  Recently, I introduced the Native Voting Rights Act of 2014, which provides the resources and oversight necessary to ensure that every citizen, regardless of language or ethnicity, can exercise his or her right to vote.  Another major issue in which I have shown strong support includes subsistence rights for Alaska Native people.  Protecting the traditional way of life is crucial to the well-being of Alaska Natives and must be preserved for the nutritional,
