Twenty-Eighth Alaska State Legislature:

Second Session: January 21, 2014 to April 20, 2014
First Session: January 15, 2013 to April 14, 2013

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.
