ABSTRACT
The article reports that lawmakers opposed to building a permanent capitol building in Juneau, Alaska, that would be financed by lease revenue bonds submitted a bill this week that would require voters to give construction the green light. Sponsored by two Republican legislators, HB 48 says a new capitol should not be built unless the state's electorate has approved all of the costs associated with the project. Supporters of a new building argue that a statewide vote is not required to build other state facilities. Juneau Mayor Bruce Botelho is spearheading efforts to get the project moving. The mayor has proposed having the city build a new $100 million capitol that would be leased to the state.
