State Capitol Digest

A roundup of news from the end of the legislative session

Posted: May 2, 2012 - 12:03am

JUNEAU — Gov. Sean Parnell says he’ll sign legislation providing more than $50 million in additional funding for K-12 education in Alaska.

That legislation includes an education package unveiled by the House — and passed by the full Legislature — at the very end of the regular session. Parnell and House Republicans had bristled at automatic increases in education funding, favoring a more targeted approach that has money going to demonstrated needs.

Parnell’s office says the total state-funded K-12 budget for education and student transportation is $1.2 billion for next fiscal year.
