It's official Alaska! 2 squadrons of F-35A Fighters will call Eielson AFB home. This is a momentous day for Alaska and the nation.

"No Fly, No Buy" is absent of one major pillar of our Constitution, DUE PROCESS. You too can mistakenly get on the no fly list, I was.
Those adamantly opposed to resource development, including our current Interior Secretary, have attempted to sell the Alaskan and American people on the idea that Alaska’s energy sector is on its last legs. I fundamentally disagree! Today’s announcement by ConocoPhillips – a discovery in the NPR-A that could yield 300 million barrels of oil – is living proof that Alaska’s abundant energy sector is alive and well. Although we face many challenges, many at the hands of an unwilling federal partner, there is great hope that we will once again fill the Trans-Alaska pipeline, provide high-paying/quality jobs for our workforce and reignite an industry which has provided so much for our state. As we move forward, I will continue to work with our federal officials – including the next Interior Secretary – to ensure development within the NPR-A, an area set aside precisely for resource development, is encouraged and not met with endless roadblocks.
