Montez Delgado | 20 May, 2017, 03:14

The Alaska Legislature on Thursday convened a special session, called by Gov. Bill Walker, after failing to come to terms on a budget and plan for addressing the state's multibillion-dollar deficit during an extended regular session.

Options include extending for another 10 days, which requires two-thirds support in each chamber, or looking to Gov. Bill Walker to call a special session. House Speaker Bryce Edgmon said Wednesday there didn't appear to be sufficient support to extend the session.

Both House and Senate permanent fund bills would change how the annual dividend Alaskans receive from the fund is calculated and initially limit its size.

"At this point, obviously, we need the governor to lead the House majority to narrow the focus", Millett said Tuesday.

Another alternative for lawmakers to complete their work is to meet in special session.

On the tax issue, Hoffman's co-chair, Anna MacKinnon, said that if the House has a different revenue measure in mind, the Senate would be happy to consider it. After four months in session, there is little indication that either side is willing to yield on what it sees as the best path forward. Wednesday marked the 121-day constitutional limit. The House has not yet completed work on its version of the capital construction budget. Bills on the House's lengthy floor calendar Wednesday included a measure that would bar wolf hunting and trapping in certain areas adjacent to Denali National Park and Preserve and legislation that included what were seen as technical fixes to a sweeping criminal justice measure passed previous year.

Edgmon said his coalition committed to staying busy and addressing other bills of importance while the Legislature was meeting. That bill now goes to Walker for consideration.

The House and Senate have proposed using earnings from the state's oil-wealth fund, the Alaska Permanent Fund, to help cover costs but disagree on what else is needed.

The House and Senate also remain at odds over oil tax and credit policy.

Entering the special session, the House and Senate have each drafted their own versions of the state operating budget, a Permanent Fund spending plan, and a plan to cut oil and gas drilling subsidies.

While lawmakers have moved to end future cashable oil tax credits, seeing the program that financially rewards oil exploration and production as too expensive, House majority members favor further changes to the state's oil tax system than the Senate has supported.
