JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Two House Democrats are asking Gov. Bill Walker’s administration to analyze the potential benefits of selling the Kodiak Launch Complex.

Reps. Les Gara and Scott Kawasaki made the request.

The launch complex has struggled financially and the Legislature has threatened to cut its funding if it didn’t bring in more business.

The state created the Alaska Aerospace Corp. in 1991 to develop an aerospace sector for Alaska’s economy. The corporation owns and operates the launch complex.

Walker is weighing how or whether to proceed with the facility, along with five other large-scale projects.
