January 15 marks the beginning of the Alaska Legislature for this session. Gavel Alaska will provide “Gavel to Gavel” coverage of the proceedings on 360 North Television and 360north.org. Before our lawmakers convene, 360north.org and gavelalaska.org will provide a new web interface for getting information, watching meetings and finding proceedings of interest to you in our media archives. The sites will combine in early January to give you a “one stop” web location for information about Alaska and our government. Watch for the soon coming changes on gavelalaska.org and 360north.org. And, join us to watch the first day of the legislative session and the events that surround a new year of coverage of Alaska government.
