It’s with great pride that Alaska serves as a cornerstone for America’s ballistic missile defense. I was glad to meet with the new Director of the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), Vice Admiral Jon Hill, to discuss Alaska’s preeminent role in protecting North America.

In my efforts to collaborate with the administration, I recently hosted Attorney General William Barr in Alaska to help him see the severity of the #MMIW issue firsthand, showing that the system that is in place to provide basic public safety is not working for many in rural AK.

One of the many takeaways I had from that trip is that in order put a stop to this epidemic-- to make a difference for the many women, children, and families who have fallen victim to these horrific crimes-- we have to “feel it in our heart”.

Safe and reliable roads and bridges on federal lands are vital for passenger vehicles and local first responders. In Denali National Park, we had a service truck slide off a gravel road down Polychrome Pass. The road will need a complete rerouting. #FixOurParks

I continue to stress that there is no good reason for a shutdown. The reality is thousands of federal employees & contractors have no paycheck in sight, small businesses that rely on them are suffering & there’s no reason they should be held hostage to a political dispute.
