Alaska to Hold Third Special Session
On July 27, the Legislature is expected to convene again for a one-day special session to pass the state’s capital construction budget. This will be the Legislature’s third special session.
Lawmakers were previously unable to agree to a compromise on the budget, but have reportedly reached an agreement with enough support to call a special session.
Under the Alaska Constitution, the approval of two-thirds of the Legislature is necessary to call a special session.
