 Anchorage, AK-- Governor Sean Parnell had a busy day Wednesday as he signed six bills at the Bear Mountain Grill in Eagle River.

Among those six bills was SB 110,which is sponsored by Senator Fred Dyson. The bill supports crime victim's rights by making stolen property retrievable. The measure comes after several victims reported having their items lost in evidence lockers. 

Along the list of bills signed into law during a cermony was SB 195,  sponsored by Senator Anna Fairclough. The bill, which increases the student loan amount, also amends the definition of the "on time" status for a student to complete coursework.
