FAIRBANKS - The board of directors of the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce earlier this week adopted 14 priorities for the next session of the Alaska Legislature, which convenes in January. Five of the priorities were designated as top priorities, with the top two of those being further designated as critical priorities.

Here are the top five:

1. Reduce the high cost of energy in Fairbanks and rural communities.

2. Encourage increased oil production.

3. Strengthen the military presence in Alaska.

4. Support funding for the University of Alaska.

5. Support funding for Fairbanks Metropolitan Area Transportation System.

The list will be delivered to Gov. Sean Parnell, all members of the Legislature, the congressional delegation, the Alaska State Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and will form the basis of the chamber’s advocacy efforts for the upcoming year, according to a chamber news release.
