By Alexandra Guttierrez, Alaska Public Radio Network
By law, Alaska's governor is required to submit a budget by Dec. 15. Having been in office for only two weeks, Gov. BIll Walker (Unaffiliated) opted to submit his predessor's $5.2 billion operating budget Monday, without endorsement. But he did make some changes to former Gov. Sean Parnell's (Republican) capital budget.
