Abortion, anti-discrimination bill things to watch

Feb 24, 2014 -- 10:00am
- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Monday marks the 35th day of the Legislature, and that means the cutoff for introduction of personal legislation. After that, only committees are allowed to introduce bills or resolutions. More than 600 bills and resolutions have been introduced so far during the 28th Legislature, which began last year. About 70 bills have passed, according to the Legislature's website. Work continues on the major issues, including the gas pipeline project, state budget and education. But other things to watch this week include legislation that would define what constitutes a medically necessary abortion for purposes of Medicaid payments, a bill that would bar discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression and confirmation hearings for three commissioners.
