Alaska Gov. Intends to Call Two Special Sessions This Summer
Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy intends to call two special sessions during the summer on May 20 and August 2.
Dunleavy will task lawmakers with addressing the state budget and the Permanent Fund dividend.
The Legislature’s regular session is scheduled to end May 19 and lawmakers are not on track to finish the state’s budget before then.
During the August session, the Legislature will consider a constitutional amendment to reduce the Permanent Fund and permanently cap the Legislature’s ability to spend from the fund.
