It will also be against the rules to take money from one agency and redirect it to the schools or reduce the tax cuts for the wealthy and use the money to pay principals more. "The only thing standing between Alaskans and an income tax right now is the Senate", the Fairbanks Republican said.

On Thursday, Republican Sen. "We saw what happened in the Senate" on Thursday, Edgmon said.

"I have heard that there are some of my Senate colleagues that would rather not be asked to consider the legislation", Yen said. The constitution allows for sessions of up to 121 days.
