Live coverage of the Alaska legislature, including committee meetings, Alaska senate and house floor sessions, press conferences and other legislative events. In addition, we cover oral arguments before the Alaska Supreme Court, administration press conferences and briefings, general government activities, and other meetings about legislative issues or of political interest.

Notice anything different?

We’ve improved our archives and made it easier to find things. If you have questions or suggestions, we’re continuing to improve Gavel and would love to hear from you. (The previous version of this page is also available for the time being.)
