Alaska Senate Adjourns from Special Session
The Alaska Senate adjourned the fourth special session on November 10.
However, on November 13 the House majority coalition announced plans to hold technical sessions until the special session ends November 21.
A technical session will force the Senate to hold similar sessions because one body cannot adjourn without the other.
Lawmakers passed a criminal justice reform bill despite warnings from the Alaska Department of Law and ACLU that the measures are unconstitutional.
