"Urging the United States Congress to pass legislation to convey land to the University of Alaska. "


"... producing a long-term revenue stream for the University is imperative and in the best interests of all Alaskans."
- Rep. Elkins

 

House Joint Resolution 14 has been introduced to urge the United States Congress to pass legislation to convey federal land to the University of Alaska.

HJR 14 voices support for U.S. Senate Bill 293, the Federal University Land Bill, sponsored by Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK). That legislation provides a grant from the federal government of 250,000 acres and up to an additional 250,000 acres match from the state.

As the largest landholder in Alaska, it is only proper that the Federal government provide support to the University of Alaska. The University needs a more dependable revenue stream, and this legislation will make the University of Alaska System more stable and similar to other land grant institutions across the nation. Eventually they will be able to become financially independent from yearly funding allocations from the Legislature.

In conjunction with House Bill 130, which was passed during the last session, U.S. Senate Bill 293 will give the University of Alaska well over 600,00 acres and will make them the envy of universities around the nation. HJR 14 will inform the members of Congress how important S.293 is to Alaskans because producing a long-term revenue stream for the University is in the best interest of all Alaskans.
