Some House Dems support longer sessions

- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Some members of the House Democratic minority say they support a return to a longer legislative session. But Anchorage Rep. Max Gruenberg says he doesn't think there is interest among the Legislature's leadership in doing so. Voters in 2006 approved changing the maximum length of a regular session from 121 days to 90 days.

Minority members have raised concerns with the pace with which some bills are moving and opportunities for public comment.
