Alaska Governor May Consider Special Legislative Session
Alaska Gov. Bill Walker hinted at a possible special session if the Legislature does not act on Medicaid expansion before the session’s scheduled end on Sunday.
Walker considers expansion necessary while many legislators have concerns about adding thousands of people to what some consider an already broken system.
If legislators run out of time without addressing the issue, Walker said he plans to simply put more time on the clock.
