Gov. Dunleavy has proposed taking $6.3 billion this year out of the $14.9 billion in permanent fund earnings.
The bill would extend Dunleavy’s fourth declaration of the pandemic, which is set to expire on Feb. 14.
Dunleavy said that he plans to have a dialog with Biden administration officials, but if he sees a consistent pattern of opposition, the governor will “use whatever tools are necessary” to fight back.
The new system would allow lawmakers to vote from the regional legislative information offices, or from their homes if they are quarantined or isolated.
