Alaskans concerned about the effects of a US Senate health care bill have been contacting Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan, and staging events at their local offices. KUAC’s Dan Bross attended a Fairbanks rally outside Senator Murkowski’s Fairbanks office Thursday evening.

Alaska posts are among dozens nationwide being considered for force reductions by the Army, but the Air Force is looking at beefing up its presence at an interior Alaska base. A plan to station the Pacific region’s first F-35 squadrons at Eielson Air Force base near North Pole is under review, and as KUAC Dan Bross reports, a member of Alaska Congressional delegation who visited Fairbanks yesterday (Thurs) is optimistic about the prospect.
