Democrats Reggie Joule of Kotzebue, Bryce Edgmon of Dillingham and Bob Heron of Bethel are now working with the majority Republicans in Alaska’s House of Representatives. Republican Mike Chenault of Nikiski says the three will broaden the views of the majority caucus while minority leader Beth Kerttula of Juneau says she’s disappointed with the departures. The House majority now numbers 26 with the minority numbering 14.
