Gov. Bill Walker announced an additional $10 million cut to the University of Alaska.
The largest share of that cut is to the account the state uses to partially reimburse local governments for school bonds.
Inmates will be moved to other corrections centers and halfway houses or possibly put on ankle monitoring, depending on the situation.
Walker is now under fire from industry representatives and lawmakers who say the state is backtracking on payments it already owes and still must pay.
Gov. Walker said he was taking responsibility for the cuts so lawmakers won’t suffer at the polls. “Any excuses now – it’s just pure politics,” he said.
