UPDATE: Special session on capital budget to convene Thursday

    JUNEAU, Alaska (KINY) - The Legislature has called itself back into a special session this coming Thursday to deal with a capital budget.

    It's  hoped it will be one day session, but Juneau Senator Dennis Egan is skeptical.  "I would question that.  I think two days maybe."

    He says they expect to see the deal hammered by House and Senate leadership early this week.

    Egan underscored the importance of getting a capital budget approved since the state must provide matching funds for  appropriations approved by the federal government for Alaska.
