There are 22 days left for Alaska lawmakers to come up with a budget plan or state offices will shut down.

Lawmakers have not embraced Governor Bill Walker's compromise proposal.

Rallies are planned in Fairbanks, Anchorage and Juneau on Sunday to urge lawmakers to come up with a plan everyone can agree on.

The House Finance Committee held a hearing yesterday to get an oil and gas tax fiscal overview.

In a lot of respects, the house and senate plans appear to be very similar.

Representative Les Gara, a democrat from Anchorage, responded to comments made during the presentation.
