The Alaska Legislature has had a very busy 2015 session. Following the elections in November, the new legislature had a short timeline to develop strategies, budgets, and legislation to address critical issues now facing the State of Alaska including Medicaid expansion, competing natural gas pipeline projects, and a potential fiscal crisis resulting from falling global oil prices.

They will be joined by Senate Finance Committee Co-Chair, Senator Anna MacKinnon who will address how the finance committee approached the budget process and the difficult decisions its members had to make in light of dramatically reduced State oil revenue forecasts.
