JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Legislature has adjourned from the extended legislative session.

The House adjourned from the five-day extended session amid whoops and hollers around 3 p.m. Friday

The Senate gaveled out about 50 minutes later, after approving the capital budget.

The 90-day session was scheduled to end Sunday but lawmakers went into overtime after failing to reach agreement on an education package. Then, as a tentative agreement on education was announced Wednesday, the House rejected a Senate-approved financing plan for the proposed Knik Arm bridge project, creating another snag lawmakers needed to resolve.

Both were wrapped up Friday.
