U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski on Monday made her annual visit to the place where her political career began — the state capital in Juneau — and didn’t mince words: she’s no fan of government shutdowns and she is not happy about President Trump’s recent emergency declaration for the border wall funding Congress would not approve.

Murkowski delivered her 16th speech to state lawmakers, most of whom were not in office when she served in Juneau.

She touched on topics like advancements with the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, renewable energy projects in rural communities and funding for the Nenana-Totchaket Bridge, which she says will create access to 900,000 acres of agricultural, university and state forest land.
