Rep. Tuck’s Community Connection: Historic Action – Legislature Called Into Special Session

As you may have already heard, the Legislature has been adjourned by the Governor and called into special session beginning today.

I am very disappointed that the Legislature was not able to follow the mandate from the voters to finish our business in 90 days. It is the Legislature’s duty to cooperate to advance Alaska’s interests, and I want to see results through cooperation. I am prepared, however, to stay in Juneau as long as it takes to get the job done and make sure the people’s business is finished.

Rep. Kawasaki’s Juneau Note: EOS? Maybe not so… Why Does it Take So Long? Permanent Fund Tops $40-Billion!

As you may have already heard, the end of session is scheduled for Sunday at midnight. Right now, at 8pm, it looks very unlikely that the Legislature will finish the work that we need to do to adjourn. The budget, Susitna Dam energy issues, college scholarships and coastal environmental policy remain in play tonight. With so much work left to be done, it wouldn’t be right to adjourn without finishing our work.

Rep. Guttenberg’s Legislative Report: It’s Time To Take Up the Budget; Final Hour Legislation; Thank You UAA Intern; Redistricting;

With one day left the race is on. The main focus will be passing the capitol budget and any final pieces of legislation that have made it through the process. A possible adjournment Sunday may not be realistic as of today. Right now it is my impression that we will be in Juneau as long as it takes to get the work done.

In late May you should be receiving my paper newsletter which will give a more detailed look at projects in the budget and the overall impressions of the session. We also will be working to put together constituent meetings around the district.

NOW The Work Has To Start?

As I have gotten older, my allergy to work has increased. Even in its advanced state, it’s true, my work allergy doesn’t rival that of my boyhood idol, Maynard G. Krebs, who had what looked, on television anyway, like he was having a grand mal seizure every time he heard the word “work”.

But still. The past week has been too much. Here’s a truncated account of the work I’ve done just in the powerful House Finance Committee.
