Dunleavy makes another attempt toward education funding – KTVA 11


Dunleavy and the Legislature have differed on whether last year’s appropriation for the fiscal year 2020 is constitutional.

Monday’s hearing reprises the weeks long debate, which began early May and comes underpinned by dueling legal opinions.

Each was written by Attorney General Kevin Clarkson and Megan A. Wallace, director for the Division of Legal and Research Services.

Wallace stood by her May 4 opinion sent to the Legislature, telling the committee: “In the opinion of Legal Services, the appropriations made in HB 287 from last year remain valid appropriations and until a court renders a decision invalidating those appropriations, those are binding by law and, in our opinion, the governor would be constitutionally required to execute those appropriations.”
