Winter Legislative Meeting February 29 – March 1, 2012

ASHNHA Board members packed a lot into two days in Juneau during the Winter meeting February 29- March 1. CEO’s testified in front of the House and Senate HSS  and Military committees, met with Governor Sean Parnell, listened to legislative leaders on oil and gas policy—and that was just some of the action.

Board members were invited to visit with the Governor of Alaska at his house- walking distance from the Capitol. The Governor visited with members and then assembled the Board in the ballroom for some remarks.  ASHNHA President Bruce Lamoureux made comments on behalf of the group thanking the Governor for the time he took to talk with us and reviewing some of our priorities.  Chief of Staff Mike Nizich, Special Assistant  Mike Lessman, and Commissioners Streur and Hultberg also attended the reception and mingled with the Board.
