JUNEAU- Monday marks the first full work week of this session, with lawmakers set to begin digging into details on plans to advance a natural gas pipeline project.

A proposal to reject proposed pay raises for top state officials and continued talk about the oil tax cut also are among the three things to watch in the Alaska Legislature.
At least seven hearings are scheduled related to the gas line project, not including a consultants' overview of the liquefied natural gas business.
Senate Finance plans to hear a proposal to reject pay raises for top state offices. Any such bill would have to be enacted into law within 60 days after the recommendations are submitted for the raises to be disapproved.
Talk of the oil tax cut is expected to continue shading discussions surrounding state spending.
