JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The House and Senate have winnowed down their calendars, awaiting resolution on the education bill and capital budget, the last major pieces in play in this extended session.

The Senate had five House bills on its calendar Wednesday. It also noticed a proposed constitutional amendment to create a transportation infrastructure fund. That measure remained in the Senate Finance Committee.

The House had a proposed constitutional amendment aimed at helping lower the cost of student loans. Also pending was a bill to finance the Knik Arm crossing project. If the House takes it up, it will have to decide whether to agree to the Senate approach.

The House also had the capital budget calendared. But a vote on that is pending resolution on an education package.
