A Russian company signs an agreement for a stake in the Point Thomson project. Juneau minority Democrats offer their own version of oil-tax reform. Mayor Dan Sullivan unveils a surprise labor-law bill that will diminish the power of unions. The cruise ship wastewater bill is moving rapidly – if not smoothly – in the Senate.  Shell is sending the damaged drill rig Kulluk to Asia. The filing deadline for the Assembly and the School Board has come and gone. Conservatives’ efforts to move legislation that would expand school choice – through Charter schools and aid to parochial schools – is getting a lot of legislative attention as is  vouchers. It appears that Congress and the president will not avoid the sequester – major and sudden reductions in federal funding. The Republican Party’s battle over the chairmanship of the party is still making waves in the capital.
