Alaska Legislature Adjourns Sin Die
The Alaska Legislature adjourned sin die late Wednesday after finally coming to an agreement on the state’s budget bill.
Lawmakers set this year’s dividend for each resident at $3,200 from Alaska’s Permanent Fund, a fund derived from the state’s oil and gas reserves.
The Legislature failed to pass new campaign contribution limits to replace the ones found to be unconstitutional earlier this year.
Alaska’s regulatory body, the Alaska Public Offices Commission, punted the responsibility to lawmakers after refusing to resurrect old contribution limits.
This does affect lobbyist reporting.
A lobbyist monthly report will be due June 30, covering May 1 through May 31.
