The governor and the Alaska Legislature’s presiding officers agreed to move the State of the State address to Tuesday at 7 pm, after several commissioners and even the First Lady were not able to make it due to weather and airline crews who ran out of shift time.
“Due to weather related flight delays in Juneau, State of the State guests and commissioners will not be able to arrive in time for the address that was scheduled for this evening. Gov. Mike Dunleavy and the presiding officers agreed to move the address to Tuesday, January 30 at 7:00 p.m,” the governor’s office reports.
One flight to Juneau wasn’t able to land due to condition; that was the first of other events, as crews had to clock out, and replacement crews also ran out of time.
Estimates are that as many as 10 commissioners and three legislators were not able to get to Juneau in time for tonight’s awaited address, in addition to First Lady Rose Dunleavy.
