North Pole Republican Sen.

If the gun bills can't clear the Judiciary Committee they are unlikely to be heard on the Senate floor. It's named after the former National Football League and University of Florida quarterback who was home-schooled in Florida but competed with public-school teammates.

The measure was first introduced in 2015 after state troopers Scott Johnson and Gabriel Rich were killed while responding to a call in Tanana in 2014.
