Alaska Legislature officially ends special session


JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – The special session called by Gov. Bill Walker has officially ended, with no final action toward addressing Alaska’s multibillion-dollar deficit.

The special session began July 11. It followed a prior special session and an extended regular session in which Walker’s tax proposals failed to gain traction.
