In the final days of the two-year legislative session, lawmakers were making up for lost time. At the end of their first year, the 30th Alaska Legislature was the least productive in state history. The second year changed that.
Through 5 p.m. Friday, 120 bills had passed both the House and the Senate. That’s more than the 115 that passed in the 29th Legislature (which met in 2015 and 2016) and the 115 that passed in the 27th Legislature (which met in 2011 and 2012).
Among the bills passing in the final days of last week were some significant pieces of legislation.
