Rep. Reinbold stays busy during first term

Wednesday, April 17, 2013 - 19:00

It is my pleasure to represent the constituents of District 26 in the Alaska House of Representatives on the issues that are important to them. This is a sampling of our work so far:

We were able to reduce the state budget by $111,000,000 to turn the tide against government growth.


* Streamline Permitting in our state

HB 140 Reinbold Primary Sponsor; To provide better information about regulations that may significantly affect private individuals and businesses, other state agencies and local governments, House Bill 140 requires that regulation notices include information about estimated costs beyond those to the agency. In order for Alaskans to better understand government actions that affect their businesses and lives.

I supported HJR 6, relating to legacy wells. A year after the Alaska Legislature unanimously passed a resolution calling on the federal Bureau of Land Management to clean up and plug dozens of old oil and gas drilling sites in the National Petroleum Reserve Alaska. Calling on The Bureau of Land Management to protect the land, sea and wildlife by plugging and cleaning up the wells.

HB30: Relating to performance reviews, audits, and termination of executive and legislative branch agencies, the University of Alaska, and the Alaska Court System.

HB77: Because Alaskans deserve more timely, consistent permitting decisions.


* Other matters

HJR 5: Opposing the production of genetically engineered salmon; and proposing, if the petition is approved, that its product should be labeled as “genetically modified.”

SB 41: Relating to student participation in interscholastic activities; The big change in this bill is that it allows students to participate in interscholastic activities at a private or religious school, but it does not require a school to take every homeschool student that wants to play.

HB 151: Establishing a public school and school district grading system for purposes of improving accountability and transparency.

Supported HB 112: The repeal of The film tax credit.

Opposed the appointment of Vince Webster for The Board of Fisheries.


* I supported legislation regarding Federal overreach

SJR2: Urging the United States Congress and the President of the United States to limit federal government overreach into management of state resources.

SJR6: Urging the President of the United States to refrain from any further efforts to restrict ownership of firearms.


* Being a strong supporter of Military personnel and their families

It was my privilege to support HB 46: Waiving the commercial motor vehicle driving skills test for drivers with military commercial motor vehicle experience.

HB 67: “An Act establishing March 29 of each year as Vietnam Veterans Day; and providing for an effective date.”

HCR 2: “Proclaiming the state as a Purple Heart State to honor the service and sacrifice of our nation’s men and women in uniform wounded or killed by the enemy while serving to protect the freedom enjoyed by all Americans.”


I look forward to seeing you back home in Eagle River. Please feel free to contact me!
