Legislative-move advocates are contesting the results of a failed ballot initiative to move the Legislature from Juneau to Anchorage and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough and are calling for a new election in 2004. Ballot Measure 3 failed by a 2-1 margin statewide in November, but initiative sponsor Alaskans for Efficient Government says the public was not fully informed of the costs of the move.
Senate Bill 101, which started off as a 14-line measure altering the state's legal definition of a disaster last March, was passed out of its third conference committee on Monday.
The journey of the most heavily traveled bill of the 21st Legislature may soon be over.
