By Patrick Moussignac: Empty chairs outnumber people at hearing on SB 91 fix
Instead of the required 24-hour notice on the hearings, lawmakers made the announcement the night before. That led to lots of empty seats and some complaints at the LIO, where Anchorage resident David Manzer wasn’t happy.

“If you have a hearing on a Saturday, please post the call-in number to the website,” Manzer urged legislators. “It says call in to get the number, yet when you call in of course that number is only manned during the workdays — Monday through Friday, 8 to 5.”
