University Legislative Information
This site provides up-to-date information on legislation, UA's budget request, bills affecting the university, important dates for committee hearings and other helpful resources. You'll also find briefing sheets on UA priorities, Juneau updates and the SupportUA Listserve.
We suggest that when contacting legislators regarding issues such as the budget you avoid using university email or other resources, and that you do so on your own time, such as lunch time or after work. The university's budget is not a partisan political issue or a ballot measure -- those issues are subject to very strict prohibitions or restrictions on use of state resources. However, your advocacy will have the greatest effect if it does not raise use of resource issues.

SupportUA-L is designed to keep UA advocates informed about the University's budget and other legislative matters. Regular legislative updates will be sent out during the session. To subscribe to this listserve, please click here!

FY18 Operating Budget Impasse Employee Information
If a budget impasse continues, the university will issue furlough notices or, in the case of some represented non-faculty employees, layoffs. Notices may be issued to broad groups of employees and then rescinded as detailed staffing plans are refined. An FAQ that will address some of your most urgent questions can be found at www.alaska.edu/hr/budget-
