Gov. Murkowski's special session is a disaster. It's a huge waste of money and time and will likely have an ongoing negative impact on this Legislature's ability to work effectively together.
Republican Sen. Ben Stevens' artless and arrogant leadership of the Senate is largely responsible for this costly legislative train wreck. He and Gov. Murkowski's trumped-up crisis over the state pension system and workman's compensation needs to end now; nothing is wrong with either system that cannot be addressed in regular session.
Let's tell Sen. Ben Stevens and Gov. Murkowski its' time to adjourn.
