The House on Monday overwhelmingly passed a budget bill that covers expenses bill proponents say is needed in coming weeks.
It's a $110 million bill-- a fraction of the larger $4.5 billion operating budget under review-- and known as fast-track supplemental legislation.
It passed 32-7.
The bill includes funds for the Alaska Marine Highway System, the Department of Corrections and the state's community assistance program. The largest portion is $45 million for Medicaid.
