JUNEAU - Sen. Lesil McGuire, R-Anchorage, has initiated an online "Twitter" feed to provide quick text updates about Capitol activities and actions in her committees.
McGuire chairs the Senate Special Committee on Energy and the Senate Special Committee on World Trade, Technology and Innovation. She is co-chair of the Senate Resources Committee.
McGuire is the first Senate member to use Twitter for online text updates.
"With the Legislature in Juneau and our neighbors and constituents sometimes feeling their senators and representatives are out of reach, this is an excellent tool to keep Alaskans in close touch with day-to-day activities in the Capitol," she said.
