Another new year is upon us. And we all know what that means: political fun and games in Juneau. Grab your popcorn and tune in to Gavel-to-Gavel on January 17th as the second session of the 27th Alaska Legislature gets started. Wait. Scratch that. You can probably wait until about ⅔ of the session is over before things really start to heat up.
It may not be all that entertaining though, compared to the political theatre we all witnessed in the last few days of the session last April. You remember it don’t you? In case you missed it...
Congress needs to take action now to extend unemployments to the folks who are on the verge of losing all income and who could start showing up on the doorsteps of the food banks and homeless shelters.
