APEA Legislative Liaison, Cindy Spanyers Legislative Update:

It’s been an exceptionally long week in the capital with many disappointments. By now, most of you are aware of the Senate actions against the union contracts bargained in good faith and the additional cuts into education: not just the BSA, but the designated education fund to forward fund education. The Governor began the session with reductions the budget to adjust to the revenue situation but avoid damage to the economy. The House decreased the budget further but the Senate not only slashed but announced that the cuts would be worse next year. Will they cause Alaska to go into a recession? Here are interesting reflections from ‘Wichersham’s Conscience’ on the question:


This email contains more details on the Senate actions, the upcoming legislative hearing schedule, and the legislative contact list. A more detailed report on new bills and other details about legislation will follow soon.
