Gov. Michael Dunleavy this afternoon said he is calling for a special session for Juneau to deal with five matters that have not been completed:
- Crime legislation rolling back SB 91
- Operating budget with a full Permanent Fund dividend
- Mental Health Trust budget
- Capital budget
- Education funding
In an announcement that came at 5:30 pm, just 6.5 hours before the end of the session comes this evening, the governor appeared to have lost faith that the House and Senate could complete their work.
But if any of those items are completed, he will remove them from the call of the special session, he said. He said he would issue the proclamation shortly.
