Special Session in Alaska Impacts Campaign Fundraising
Alaskan lawmakers have been busy strategizing how to continue campaign fundraising ahead of the July 11 special session.
State statute bans lawmakers from soliciting or accepting contributions in the capital city or any municipality where the Legislature is convened.
Despite calls by some lawmakers to hold the session in Anchorage due to a lodging shortage in Juneau, the formal legislative session will remain in Juneau allowing political fundraising to continue in Anchorage.
