Election year politics
In the first half of this week’s Frontiers, we had historical perspective on the Permanent Fund from Clem Tillion, one of the legislative leaders who fought to create it. In this segment, we focus on what’s on the horizon – a possible special legislative session at the end of October. Two political reporters weigh in -- KTVA’s Liz Raines and the Alaska Dispatch’s Nat Herz. They’ve had a front row seat covering Alaska politics, and will look at how upcoming elections might affect any attempts to close the chronic state budget gaps forecasted for the foreseeable future.
