Alaskans are fundamentally aware of how the heavy hand of Washington bureaucrats negatively impacts the economy, our individual liberties and the sovereignty afforded to states under the 10th Amendment.
Decades ago, Gov. Wally Hickel directed the Department of Law to dedicate attorneys and resources specifically for the purpose of Statehood Defense. In 2013, the Alaska Legislature enacted a law to require an annual report about the State’s legal disputes with the federal government. Last November, Governor Mike Dunleavy signed Executive Order 325, authorizing my office to fight back against any unconstitutional encroachment of our rights and liberties.
