THE ANCHORAGE DAILY PLANET
You can almost feel the angst emanating from Juneau in the wake of a proposed ballot measure being certified that, if approved by voters, would move sessions of the Alaska Legislature to Anchorage.
Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer and the Department of Law cleared the way Wednesday for Equal Access Alaska to begin gathering the 28,501 signatures it will need to get the question on the ballot in 2020.
If the measure reaches the ballot and is approved by voters, it likely would cause a sea change in Alaska politics as more Alaskans finally would have access to lawmakers and the Legislature while the legislative session is underway.
You can be sure Juneau, as always when the question of moving the capital or Legislature comes up, will fight tooth and nail to keep the Legislature meeting in that Southeast city.
