There are only 10 days left in regular session, but Republican leadership has already warned us about another special session. The Senate passed a resolution calling for a special session on the road system-which likely means Anchorage-over one week ago. Many of my Independent Democratic Coalition members and I have called on legislators to focus, work hard and get the job done within the 90-day voter-mandated deadline. During these last several days, the legislature is also under a shorter schedule to notify the public of important bills and public testimony. While this is supposed to be helpful for the legislature to complete the work on time, it has also been used, in my opinion, to undermine the public process and short circuit public input. If you have any questions on a certain piece of legislation, please contact my office at 907.456.7423.
