The cost of overtime lawmaking in Alaska

Untitled Document

* This clock shows the estimated cost of overtime lawmaking this year by the Alaska Legislature. Lawmakers have long since passed the voter-approved 90-day limit to the regular legislative session, and now a special session that can last up to a month is under way. The costs of overtime pale in comparison to state government's $4.1 billion budget deficit. But expenses are adding up. Legislators and some staffers get a daily stipend, nonpartisan staff are working weeks longer than planned, and temporary space is being rented while the Capitol is renovated. $535,690 of receipts have been submitted to the Legislative Affairs Agency as of late May. Data provided by the agency suggests daily costs from now on will be roughly $26,475.
