Mat-Su State Rep. Jesse Sumner (R-Wasilla) and State Sen. Jesse Bjorkman, R-Nikiski, have teamed up on new legislation that would allow Alaskan sawmill operators to be state-certified to produce and grade dimensional lumber for use in residential construction. 

Bjorkman’s Senate Bill 87 was introduced in the Senate last Friday while Sumner’s House Bill 93 was introduced Monday in the House.
