JUNEAU — Gov. Bill Walker will allow the Legislature to leave Juneau and convene the special session in Anchorage this week.
His spokeswoman, Grace Jang, tells The Associated Press in an email that the No. 1 priority is that lawmakers pass a fully-funded budget, and not where that is done.
Walker last month called the special session for Juneau. However, legislative leaders on Monday announced plans to begin holding floor sessions in Anchorage Thursday, citing work on the Capitol as a reason for the move.
