Scholarship fund to be considered

Scholarship fund to be considered

JUNEAU — The Senate Finance Committee plans to take up a bill that would create a fund for student scholarships. The bill, requested by Gov. Sean Parnell, would establish a fund providing a long-term funding source for merit scholarships, a pet project of Parnell. The Legislature last year approved $400 million as a set-aside for the fund but the bill establishing the fund stalled in the Senate after clearing the House.
