Spring legislative sitting to start March 25

WHITEHORSE – Premier Dennis Fentie announced today that the Speaker will reconvene the Yukon Legislative Assembly on March 25.

“To a large degree this will be a stay the course budget, a continuance of our overall plan for creating stimulus while building a long-term economy for Yukoners. We continue to build on the social side of the ledger, emphasizing education, health care, infrastructure and other initiatives,” Fentie said. “We’ve been tabling strategic budgets for a number of years and this will be the eighth consecutive surplus.”

The members of the assembly will review the 2010-11 Operations and Maintenance, and Capital budgets along with bills during this sitting.

The public is invited to attend the opening of the spring sitting starting at 1 p.m.
