Reporters invited to ask questions after a week of public input on Alaska’s budget
JUNEAU – The Alaska House Majority will hold a press availability on Thursday, March 28, at 8:30 a.m. in the Speaker’s Chambers.
The availability comes on the heels of the House Finance Committee’s statewide community meetings on Alaska’s budget.

Speaker Bryce Edgmon (I-Dillingham) will be joined at the availability by the Finance Committee co-chairs, Reps. Neal Foster (D-Nome) and Tammie Wilson (R-North Pole), as well as Rep. Chuck Kopp (R-Anchorage), who is the chair of the Rules Committee.
The availability will be livestreamed on the Alaska House Majority Facebook page.
