Lawmakers are meeting in Juneau for an unusual and challenging legislative session. With strict COVID-19 rules in place and a massive state budget deficit, there’s a lot at stake. What’s likely to happen this year with permanent fund dividends and pandemic relief? We discussed the year’s big legislative issues with reporters covering the session on the next Talk of Alaska.
