JUNEAU — The Senate Finance Committee has unveiled a stripped-down, draft rewrite of the capital budget.
As it stands, the budget would be one of the smallest capital budgets in Alaska in more than a decade. The bill proposes total capital budget funding for next year 2016 at about $1.46 billion. The capital budget for 2004 was $1.53 billion and about $1.3 billion in 2001.
The figure doesn't include supplemental items for the current year that are rolled into the package, and changes still could be made. Amendments are expected to be considered Thursday.
