I can certainly say time has been flying at the Capitol, as I write this to you on the 81st day of the legislative session.
Before breaking into this week’s issues, I would like to remind you of your chance to call in tomorrow to testify on the operating budget for FY22.
Greetings on this 53rd day of the 32nd Legislative Session. The House was unable to organize for an extended period of time this year, much like during the 2019 session. After much work, both the House and the Senate are going forward with precarious governing coalitions. We are now doing our best to work together and put Alaska’s interests first.
The 2020 session was one for the record books. Be-tween adjourning historically early to comply with un-precedented health mandates, and returning for just a few days in May to approve federal COVID funding.
