The initiative that would move legislative meetings to Anchorage has now been approved by Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer, who sent a letter to the sponsor Dave Bronson today, announcing his decision

Meyer wrote that 198 of the 208 signatures submitted were those of qualified voters, and the Department of Law concluded the bill is in the proper form and is eligible for signature-gathering.

Bronson will have one year from the time the Division of Election provides him with petition booklets to gather the required signatures. The petition must be signed by 10 percent of those who voted in the preceding general election, and must come from three-quarters of the House districts in the state. Some 28,501 signatures are needed.
