By | February 17, 2014 - 1:45 pm

120px-Tennis_racket_and_ballTradition is an important part of politics. The Alaska Legislature has long followed the tradition of keeping the state’s capital budget process confidential until the last minute, and then releasing and voting on it in the final days of the session. Some people think that leads to bad decisions. We’ll talk about Anchorage’s recent tennis court controversies, and other impacts of how the legislature does its job. Is there a better way?
