Alaska's governor in Fairbanks today

Alaska's governor will be in Fairbanks today.

Governor Sean Parnell is scheduled to speak at a redeployment of a Stryker Brigade at Fort Wainwright.

Parnell also plans to sign a bill that creates economic incentive zones around military bases in the state.

The zones would extend economic incentives for private industry to create partnerships with bases.

The measure was sponsored by Fairbanks Republican Representative Steve Thompson, the former mayor of Fairbanks.

HB316, allows for the creation of so-called military facility zones, where industrial or economic development would improve the base's ability to fulfill its mission.
