Governor Guts It

Gov. Bill Walker said Thursday that he will veto a purchase of the Legislature’s office building in Anchorage if lawmakers propose it, a threat that one Senate leader suggested could draw retaliation. Walker said paying $32.5 million for the newly renovated Anchorage Legislative Information Office, or LIO, on Fourth Avenue would be inconsistent with the steep cuts being proposed by his administration and by lawmakers in the face of the state’s $4 billion budget deficit.
