Alaska special session nears end with unresolved debates

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A bill that would set a dividend for residents this year sat another day in a key Senate committee on Monday.

    Meanwhile, a bill intended to help address medical facility staffing concerns amid a COVID-19 surge appeared dead in the House as the third special session of the year neared its end.

    The Senate Finance Committee has yet to advance a version of the dividend bill passed by the House on Aug. 31.

    The special session is set to expire Tuesday.

    A hearing on the bill was set for Tuesday morning.
