Alaska Native Sisterhood members Marie Olson, left, and Connie Constance Davis watch Wednesday as Senate Bill 43, which would add an official second verse to the Alaska Flag Song, is passed at the Capitol. Carol Beery Davis, Connie's mother, wrote the second verse for Alaska and its Native population in 1987, and to pay homage to Benny Benson, who designed the Alaska state flag. The bill now moves onto the House.
