ANCHORAGE, Alaska — In the wake of Gov. Sarah Palin's departure, lawmakers prepare to override her veto of $28 million in federal stimulus money.
A joint House and Senate energy committee hearing will be held Monday morning in Anchorage.
Lawmakers will get an update on the status of the federal stimulus money.
The money can go towards making buildings more energy efficient, weatherization, loans and grants for energy efficiency projects, street lighting upgrades, and public education efforts.
The Federal Energy Department has given lawmakers until September 30 to apply for the money.
So far Alaska is the only state not approved for the state energy program, funded by the stimulus.
