Legislators are more than a week past their deadline to end the regular legislative session and the most important issue, the budget deficit, is still unresolved. This session lawmakers heard multiple bills that, if passed, could increase costs for cities and boroughs around the state. 

This week on the Coffee Table we discussed session’s proposed legislation and the impacts it could have on the city of Homer and the Kenai Peninsula Borough. 

Our guests were Representative Paul Seaton of Homer, Homer City Manager, Katie Koester, Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Navarre's Chief of Staff, Paul Ostrander and Kenai Peninsula Borough School Board Member, Liz Downing.
