JUNEAU — The state budget remained unsettled Thursday, one-third of the way through the special session called by Gov. Bill Walker.
Lawmakers are scheduled to reconvene Tuesday; the Legislature last week voted for a recess in floor sessions until then.
But House Speaker Mike Chenault, R-Nikiski, and Senate Majority Leader John Coghill, R-North Pole, questioned bringing the full Legislature back to Juneau to gavel in if there is nothing new to act upon. Both hoped to have greater clarity in the next few days.
