Assembly says it's heard enough public comment

- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage workers say they need more time to comment on Mayor Dan Sullivan's proposed rewrite of city labor laws. The Anchorage Assembly has heard almost 20 hours of public comment on the proposal. A five-hour public comment session was held Monday night on the proposed changes, which a union official says will affect 2,200 employees. Assembly Chairman Ernie Hall told Channel-2 News that the assembly has given the public enough time to comment. He says 20 hours is a reasonable amount of time. But union officials say more time is needed given the scope of the proposed changes. The American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska says the assembly is limiting the right of Anchorage citizens to speak out on the issue.
