Alaska Adjourns Special Session
Alaska’s fourth special session adjourned on November 21 after reaching the 30-day limit set by the state’s constitution.
Since November 10, lawmakers were in a technical session after the Senate attempted to adjourn the special session after passing a criminal justice reform bill. In Alaska one body cannot adjourn without the other.
No committee hearings are held in a technical session, and no formal legislative business is done.
