|Committee Chair Rep. Kurt Olson, Kenai|
Last year I mentioned in a blog post from Juneau that someone could probably blog the legislature from Anchorage using BASIS, the Legislature's website, and Gavel to Gavel, and readers might not even know the blogger wasn't in Juneau. I'm not going to try to fool anybody about where I am (Anchorage) but I am checking now and then on what's happening in Juneau. And I'll remind you that this is happening and you can drop in anytime.
For example, today, right now as I type here, the House Labor and Commerce Committee is hearing from Bob Pickett, the chair of the Regulatory Commission of Alaska (this used to be called the Alaska Public Utilities Commission.)
Pickett is giving an overview of the Commission, what they do, and answering questions from the committee members. You can get to it live right now here. (It's 4:17pm as I write, later you'll get reruns of sessions that were recorded today.)
