Cost to move Legislature could be up to $45M if state builds office, analysts find

Moving the Legislature from Juneau to Anchorage could cost anywhere from a little less than $3 million the first year to nearly $45 million. Thatís according to a report by the state Office of Management and Budget.

A group is aiming to have a ballot measure next year to move the Legislature to Anchorage.

The wide range in costs depends on whether the state builds new office space for legislative staff or rents space, according to the nonpartisan Legislative Affairs Agency. The estimated cost to rent is at least $460,000 per year, not including remodeling. The cost to build space could be $42 million.

The report does not consider the economic and social costs to Juneau and Southeast Alaska. And it doesnít consider the cost of maintaining empty state office space in Juneau.
