JUNEAU, Alaska — Lawmakers heading down to Juneau have released another batch of proposed laws and regulations.
Among the measures, a bill by Reps. Pete Petersen and Scott Kawasaki which would require insurance coverage for autism spectrum disorders.
There's also a proposal by House Democrats to offer tax breaks for oil companies that hire Alaskans.
Another bill, sponsored by Rep. Charisse Millett and Sen. Kevin Meyer, would establish a one-time payment to firefighters, police or other peace officers who die while on the job.
Some Democrats in the House of Representatives also introduced a constitutional amendment which would turn part of the state's savings into an endowment.
Windfall state revenues would feed the fund, which sponsors say would be mostly off-limits to lawmakers.
The amendment requires voter approval.
Lawmakers will gavel in for the next legislative session on Tuesday.
