JUNEAU — Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy answered questions from Alaskans and discuss his view of the ongoing legislative special session in a “town hall” meeting broadcast on Facebook Live that started at noon today.
The broadcast can be seen here, or in the video above. Alaskans were able to ask questions directly in the comments section of the video during the event.
“After exhausting a full-121 day regular session, the Alaska Legislature is currently halfway through a special session. However, completion on a number of basic tasks required by the Alaska Constitution and demanded by the Alaskan people remain unfinished, including the operating budget, funding for K-12 education, the capital budget, the mental health budget, and a full PFD,” the governor said in prepared remarks released late Thursday. “I hope you can join me tomorrow, Friday, May 31st at noon for a Facebook Town Hall Meeting where I will answer questions directly from you about the status of the Legislature and the lack of progress on key priorities, including the budget, restoring the PFD, and more.”
This is the second Q&A event hosted by the governor on Facebook since his inauguration. The first took place May 7.
