JUNEAU, Alaska -- Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan visited lawmakers in Juneau Thursday and says he is pleased the Legislature is showing support for Anchorage.
About $470 million of the proposed capital budget will go to fix up roads, construct buildings and continue work at the Port of Anchorage.
But Sullivan points to a few projects he'd still like to see pass.
One thing he wants is money for a new crime lab to be built in Anchorage. He would also like $5.5 million for a new data center, which would be a hub of bookkeeping and stats for the school district, municipality and state.
Sullivan says he's also keeping a close eye on a bill to create a natural gas storage facility near Cook Inlet.
