Alaska Legislature Adjourns First Special Session, Governor Calls Second
Lawmakers ended their special session on June 13.
The Legislature passed a capital budget bill but failed to reach the three-quarter threshold required to fund major provisions.
Failure to reach the threshold left millions of dollars in projects unfunded and federal match money at risk.
Gov. Mike Dunleavy called a second special session in order to address the permanent fund dividends the Legislature also could not agree on.
The second special session will convene on July 8, at 1 p.m. in Wasilla.
