JUNEAU, Alaska —

U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is visiting Alaska this week.

Her schedule includes stops in Kodiak on Monday and later in Cold Bay and Anchorage, where she is scheduled to meet with tribal and oil industry leaders.

It comes as a Senate subcommittee holds a field hearing in Kodiak Monday to discuss the need for a strong Coast Guard presence in Alaska amid growing interest in the Arctic. The hearing was requested by Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski. The Coast Guard's commandant, Admiral Robert Papp, is scheduled to testify.
