In the first fallout from Alaska's political feud, Sen. Mia Costello (R-Anchorage) was ousted from her position as Majority Leader, and the job instead was given to Sen.

Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy today (Friday 6-28-19) announced 168 line-item vetoes to the state operating budget next year. At the top of the list: Public Broadcasting. Local stations like KCAW, already operating on lean budgets, will have to do more fundraising within their communities to survive.
