The second regular session of the 29th Alaska Legislature gets underway next month and the discussion in the halls of the state capital will likely again be centered around the state’s three and a half billion dollar budget deficit. Sitka Democrat Jonathon Kreiss-Tomkins, Petersburg’s representative in the Alaska House, will be helping to make some of those difficult decisions about the state budget as well as trying to advance other legislation he’s introduced.
