KODIAK — Following the Legislature’s failed vote to override Governor Mike Dunleavy’s budget vetoes Wednesday, a crowd of roughly 70 locals gathered at the Kodiak Legislature Information Office on Thursday to protest the roughly $444 million in cuts to the state budget. 

The Governor’s cuts include reductions to the University of Alaska, Medicaid, reimbursement to communities for school construction, state support for senior citizens, public broadcasting, the state arts council and more.
