Von Imhof talks about budget conference committee on Action Line

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The stage is now set for a conference committee on the state budget for next fiscal year.

    The House failed to concur with Senate amendments to its spending plan on Friday.

    The Senate refused to recede from its amendments during Monday's floor session.

    Anchorage Senator Natasha Von Imhof is one of the Senate conferees.  She said during a pre-recording of an Action Line program late Monday afternoon that the conference committee will probably start meeting within the next 24 hours.

    In addition to Von Imhof, fellow Finance Committee Co-Chair Bert Stedman and Minority member Donny Olson are the Senate conferees.

    The House conferees are Finance Co-Chairs Neal Foster and Tammy Wilson and Cathy Tilton.
