JUNEAU - Legislative officials say they expect a one-day special session of the Alaska Legislature will cost about $112,000 in Anchorage. That's more than it would cost in Juneau, but it isn't clear yet by how much, legislative administrators said.
The Legislature intends to override former Gov. Sarah Palin's veto of $28.6 million in energy stimulus money for Alaska and confirm Craig Campbell, Palin's recent designee as lieutenant governor. A different designee was already confirmed, though Palin changed her mind.
The Aug. 10 special session is expected to be a single day. It's only the second time in state history for a special session to be held outside Juneau. The first - also a one-day session in Anchorage - was in 2007, after the Legislature failed to extend the state's senior benefits program.
