ANCHORAGE, ALASKA (AP) - Alaska Democrats are blasting Gov. Sarah Palin’s decision to travel outside the state this week as the state Legislature’s session winds down.

Alaska Democratic Party chairwoman Patti Higgins says much work remains to be done and Palin’s decision to leave is an abdications of her duties.

Among the legislation awaiting action this week is a federal stimulus package bill and the capital budget. Lawmakers traditionally take up the budget before adjourning.

Palin plans to attend events in Indiana that include a breakfast with S.M.I.L.E., a nonprofit support organization for people with family members who have Down syndrome.
