Alaska's View From the Hill
ANCHORAGE - In this week's installment of Alaska's View from the Hill, Senator Mark Begich joined CBS 11 News' Sean Doogan from Washington, D.C. for this full, unedited interview.
Among the topics discussed: Why hasn’t the Senate passed a budget in almost three years? Begich said the budget process is broken, but why? Plus, the Air Force has agreed to put a six-month moratorium on plans to move planes and personnel from Fairbanks to Anchorage. Here what he has to say about it. And the Pirate Ship Disposal Act – allowing the coast guard to sink ships caught illegally fishing in U.S. waters.
