Kreiss-Tomkins talks oil tax bill – local interview

Five of Southeast Alaska’s six legislators and the Lt. Governor visited Petersburg for this month’s little Norway Festival. Among them was the state’s youngest lawmaker, Democrat Johnathan Kreiss-Tomkins. The 24-year-old Sitka resident took his seat in the state house in January after narrowly defeating incumbent republican Bill Thomas of Haines. As part of a series of local interviews with visiting lawmakers, Matt Lichtenstein spoke with Kreiss-Tomkins about his decision to get involved in politics in such a big way and his thoughts on Senate Bill 21, which cut taxes for oil companies.
