Alaska CHARR employs a full-time lobbyist and works closely with the Alaska CHARR Government Affairs Committee to represent you at the state level.
While our government affairs team is primarily focused on issues in Alaska they have done significant work at the national level as well, like working directly with ABL to repeal the nationwide $250 civil war era Special Occupational Tax every licensee in the country was paying.
Local Alaska CHARR’s eight Affiliates work on the front lines of your communities to represent your local interests!
In areas that do not have organized affiliates, Alaska CHARR is always willing to step in and help on issues, like the recent alcohol tax proposals we were able to defeat in Seward and Mat-Su Borough.
