"Asked about Wielechowski’s objections about the oil tax bill, Giessel, the resources committee chair, responded that the 24-hour rule is a 'non subject.'”
Clearly, she isn't using it in the first or third sense. Definition number 2 seems the closest.
It's of no interest or importance. Obviously, this isn't exactly true because the article says that Hsieh's tweeting

I think what Giessel means is that she has no interest in the 24 hour rule and it's not important to her. She doesn't care. And she doesn't have to care.
That's the problem we have when one party has a significant majority and can simply ignore the other party and the rules that have been set up to protect the people of Alaska from bills being rushed through with inadequate notice for anyone to prepare a response.
Giessel has done this sort of thing before. When it comes to oil issues, she pushes through, because that's her job, taking care of the needs of her husband's employer.
