JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The 90-day legislative session is scheduled to end Sunday. And while legislative leaders have hoped to finish their work early given that Sunday is Easter, a lot of major pieces remain in play.

That includes a bill that sets state participation in a major liquefied natural gas project and the state budgets, along with a bond bill aimed at helping the University of Alaska Fairbanks build a new power plant. The pipeline and bond bank bills are in the House, as is the capital budget.

The operating budget is in a conference committee, comprised of House and Senate negotiators.

There are also bills on education and addressing the state’s pension obligation. The Senate is tackling those.
