JUNEAU — Energy will get plenty of attention in Juneau as the Legislature begins its fourth week of the 28th session.

Meetings on the Interior natural gas trucking plan and the Alaska Standalone Gas Pipeline will be held today in House Resources and Energy committees as the start of a week of work on energy relief.

The two meetings will be followed up with more hearings in the Senate Special Committee on In-State Energy and the Senate Labor and Commerce Committee.

The House likely will pass its first bills today. That includes a contentious cruise ship wastewater discharge bill that likely will hear amendments and go to a vote. Rep. Tammie Wilson, R-North Pole, will have a bill up for a vote. Wilson’s bill conforms state environmental regulations regarding military firing ranges with federal law.
