Bill to move legislative sessions to Anchorage gets hearing in the house

In an abbreviated hearing this morning, a bill relocating legislative sessions to Anchorage beginning in 2010 moved from the House State Affairs committee into the hands of the bill’s sponsor, Finance Co-chair Kevin Meyer of Anchorage. The bill also repeals an initiative originally passed by voters in 1978 — and then expanded in 1994 — that would have required the public to approve the cost of any move from Juneau.
