ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Week 4 of the legislative special session started like any other lawmakers have seen over the past 22 days.
There's been virtually no progress on the capital budget negotiations which have kept the House and Senate in Juneau.
KTUU pulled its crew out of the capital a few weeks ago and as one legislative insider told me today, "It's the same as when you left."
Senate leaders are standing firm on their position that hundreds of millions of dollars worth of energy projects should be lumped together in an all-or-nothing package. The House thinks that violates the governor's authority to veto individual items.
House leaders have been scheduling the capital budget in the House Finance committee, in anticipation of referral, but on Monday morning, the calendar only had a single event – A Senate Finance Committee meeting that was postponed.
