JUNEAU — The Alaska Senate on Wednesday passed a $2.6 billion infrastructure spending package.
Senate President Gary Stevens has said he wants the state capital and operating budgets wrapped up by Sunday, the Legislature’s scheduled adjournment date.
The vote was unanimous, 20-0. The bill now goes to the House.
The Senate Finance Committee unveiled a new version of the bill earlier Wednesday, which was slightly more than a version of the bill released by the committee last weekend.
