    30 min ago | Anchorage Daily News

    The Republican-led House Finance Committee on Wednesday morning publicly unveiled a compromise offer to their Democratic counterparts that seeks to break the Alaska Legislature's budget gridlock. In a tense hearing at the Legislature's Anchorage offices, the committee's Republican leaders introduced a new budget bill that includes about $17 million in new funding for Democratic priorities like education and pay raises for state workers -- though it left out other Democratic requests like expansion of the Medicaid health-care program and additional money for the state's ferry system.

  4. House leaders push Alaska Permanent Fund earnings as solution to budget crisisRead the original story w/Photo

    15 hrs ago | Anchorage Daily News

    The Republican-led House majority caucus took a major step Tuesday to execute its plan to use the Alaska Permanent Fund to get access to money with which to balance this year's budget, but critics from both outside and inside the caucus have expressed concerns that the plan could threaten future dividend payments. The complicated plan, rolled out behind the scenes as a blueprint last week and as a bill Tuesday, has already drawn opposition but is attractive to the House's leaders because it would enable them to access the $10 billion Constitutional Budget Reserve rainy-day fund without the constitutionally required three-quarters vote.

    Sunday | Anchorage Daily News

    Alaska's lawmakers heard from an array of disgruntled constituents during public testimony Friday about the Legislature's halting progress toward a budget deal that's now a month overdue. After failing to agree on a spending plan during their 90-day session in Juneau, legislators have now changed their venue to their Anchorage offices, where a lone neon-vested protestor marched outside Thursday with a sign that read: "You should be in Juneau doing your damn job!" One open question, however, is whether and how the public's frustration will translate into action in 18 months, when all 40 members of the state House and 10 of the state's 20 senators stand for re-election.
