Just as legislative leadership hinted over the past week, the Alaska Senate ended Gov. Bill Walker’s special session Thursday morning and called a new one right away, this time in Anchorage.
The House majority put out a press release soon after that said it would do the same.
The Senate came to order a little after 11 a.m. in Anchorage’s new legislative information office. Sen. Bill Wielechowski, D-Anchorage, acting as the minority leader, stood right away and called for an adjournment. He asked that the Senate come back to order in Juneau later this week.
