State of State Address on hold

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - When will Governor Dunleavy present his annual State of the State Address to the Legislature?

    Not even the Governor knows.   He says there hasn't been a final decision yet since the House still needs to organize.  "I wouldn't be surprised if it's going to be done online virtually, but it could be done in person.  We'll know as soon as the House gets an organization together  and we can speak with them"

    The House is scheduled to convene this morning on Day 3 of the session.  It took 34 days for the House to organize two years ago.

    The Senate organized on the first day of the session with all 13 Republicans.  The caucus has since added Bethel Democrat Lyman Hoffman who has served in Republican dominated organizations for several years now.
