Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell signed House Bill 24 into law June 4, 2010. The bill, introduced by Rep. Anna Fairclough (R-Eagle River), offers qualified veteran-owned businesses a 5 percent procurement preference of up to $5000 when bidding on state contracts. Qualified veteran bidders under the new law must be a sole proprietorship owned by an Alaska veteran, or the majority partners of a company, LLC, or corporation are Alaska veterans. The preference may not exceed $5000 but can be cumulative to any other qualified preferences.
