Midway through session, lawmakers looking for fiscal fix

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – Alaska legislative leaders say they are committed to taking major steps to address the state’s multibillion-dollar budget deficit this year, even if that means working beyond 90 days.

House and Senate leaders say they would like to finish on time in April but are in Juneau to do a job.

House Speaker Bryce Edgmon says he’s prepared to work past 90 days if that means doing the right thing for Alaska’s future.

The scheduled 90-day session hit its halfway point on Thursday.
