Rep. Guttenberg’s Newsletter: Costly Legislative Lawsuit on the Horizon
On Tuesday leg council announced plans to sue Gov. Walker in an effort to block his authority to expand Medicaid in Alaska. This comes as no surprise considering the opposition the Governor faced since he first introduced Medicaid expansion into the budget during the regular 90 day session.
