Listicle: Which bills have passed the Alaska Legislature so far in 2024?

836

In the second regular session of the 33rd Alaska Legislature, 14 bills and just as many resolutions have passed both House and Senate, as of Friday.

May 15 marks the 121st day of the session, when the 60 legislators must cease work or call a special session. Special sessions may be called by the governor or by the Legislature and are limited to 30 calendar days.

The House and Senate will meet in separate sessions on Saturday to consider a handful of legislation, including the House continuing to consider HB 183, the bill that makes it clear that women’s athletic competitions are limited to women, not men, in Alaska public high schools and state-funded colleges.

Here are the bills and resolutions that have been voted on by both bodies so far, including veto override votes. Aside from committee bills or bills from the governor, the bills total eight from Republicans and eight from Democrats:

  1. Enough nothingburgers to stock a Fast food place. They don’t care about the problems of the public, except to deliberately make the problems larger. Leftist are sadistic. They get the jollies watching suffering

  2. So it looks like the majority are worthless resolutions that no one will know about. Great use of time legislature, just dandy.
