Alaska Budget Gridlock Threatens to Layoff State Employees
The Alaska Legislature is still at work trying to pass a budget bill to resolve the state’s annual $2.7 billion deficit.
Alaska faces a government shutdown if a budget is not adopted by July 1, and the governor’s administration already sent 30-day layoff warnings to state employees.
Because the legislative session is extending into the month of June, an additional monthly expenditure report for registered legislative lobbyists will be due on July 31, 2017.
