Twenty-Seventh Alaska State Legislature:

First Session: January 18 - April 17, 2011
Second Session: January 17 to April 15, 2012

Many pieces of legislation that affect the University of Alaska were introduced during the past two years (see complete list of legislation affecting UA). Any bill or resolution that did not pass prior to adjournment is now ‘dead,’ meaning it will have to be reintroduced next year and start the committee process from the beginning. Bills that passed the legislature will now be sent to the governor to be signed into law or vetoed. Resolutions are not subject to veto.
