ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Gov. Bill Walker’s administration has missed a legal deadline to file the state’s annual financial report.

The Alaska Dispatch News reports (http://bit.ly/1OyaH2W ) that the report was due to the Governmental Accounting Standards Board on Tuesday. In a letter to legislative leaders, Administration Commissioner Sheldon Fischer said the new rule from the board that requires improved disclosure of state and local government entities’ pension obligations kept his department from finishing the report.

The reports are lengthy annual documents that include financial and budget statements, information about debt and revenue and demographic and economic profiles.

Deputy Administration Commissioner Leslie Ridle says there is no timeline for completion of the report, but her department hopes to finish the document by the time the Legislature convenes in January.
