Alaska Legislature to Have Second Special Session
On June 18, the Alaska Legislature adjourned a special session after failing to alter the effective date of the state budget.
Under the Alaska constitution, bills take effect 90 days after enactment unless two-thirds of the House and two-thirds of the Senate approve an earlier date.
The House could not meet this threshold.
Gov. Dunleavy issued a proclamation, calling lawmakers into another special session starting June 23 with the goal of passing a state budget before July 1.
