State House takes up Darfur divestiture bill

A state House committee today began considering three bills that would require the state to eliminate its investments in the Darfur region of Sudan.  A similar attempt failed last year without the early support of the Palin administration and the Permanent Fund.   The governor’s support arrived late in the session.  However in today’s hearing,  the divestment was tightened  and the support was present.
