Alaska Legislature special session begins Oct. 18
Gov. Sarah Palin called a special session to be held in Juneau starting Thursday, Oct. 18. The Alaska Legislature will meet to discuss oil and gas taxes and issues.

"Gavel-to-Gavel Alaska," the statewide television and Internet web casting service, will be providing full coverage of the upcoming special session.

Throughout the session, cameras in the state capitol will televise unedited, start-to-finish coverage of House and Senate floor sessions, key committee hearings, news conferences and other state government activity. Gavel to Gavel Alaska is produced by KTOO-TV, the public television station in Juneau.

The City and Borough of Juneau provides a major grant to support the coverage.
