Gov. Bill Walker urged lawmakers Wednesday to continue work on the flagship legislation of his 13-point plan to balance Alaska’s multibillion-dollar deficit, tempering his words with a warning that inaction will lead to another special session.
“I do not support a no-action alternative,” Walker said.
On Tuesday, Revenue Commissioner Randall Hoffbeck told the House Finance Committee that if lawmakers failed to act, they likely would see him again soon — implying another special session.
“I think commissioner Hoffbeck was very accurate in that statement,” Walker said.
