Alaska lawmakers say they plan to call themselves into yet another special session this week to approve the capital budget for infrastructure.

That budget wasn't addressed at the end of the last legislative session, and Governor Bill Walker said he wouldn't bring lawmakers back to Juneau until they came to an agreement.

A joint statement from the House and Senate this past Friday indicated that an agreement had been reached, but details won't be released until this week.

Senate Majority spokesman, Daniel McDonald, says in an email that the session will be held in Juneau, and it will likely start on Thursday.

It's expected the session will only last one or two days.
