The Alaska Legislature took its first tentative steps toward a budget compromise as conferees from the House and Senate met Tuesday afternoon and agreed upon the budgets of the Alaska Department of Commerce and the Alaska Legislature.

Conferees also agreed upon capital construction projects in the state’s comprehensive mental health budget, and portions of the state’s debt-payment budget.

Tuesday’s meeting, which lasted only minutes, is the first step in an annual process by which lawmakers come up with a compromise that includes components of a spending plan passed by the Alaska House and a different proposal approved by the Alaska Senate.
