Opinion

In case you were worried the Legislature might be making too much progress in Juneau on issues of substance such as the state budget and revenue bills, don’t worry — yet another proposal to move the capital is on the table. House Bill 185, sponsored by Rep. Colleen Sullivan-Leonard, R-Wasilla, would permanently move the Legislature to Anchorage. Although this wouldn’t be an official capital move, don’t be fooled — it would accomplish the same end while maintaining plausible deniability for its supporters. When it comes to proposed capital moves, whether to Anchorage or any other place, the state has little to gain.
