JUNEAU- There's a lot to look forward to in Juneau starting Tuesday as the scheduled 90 day session begins.

Law makers say state spending, education funding, and plans for moving a major gas line project forward will be among the big issues facing them this session.

While oil taxes aren't on the docket, the issue could loom large in discussions about state spending and the gas line project.
 
Voters in August will be asked to decide whether to repeal the tax cut passed last year.
   
The upcoming election will also play a part in this scheduled session, as many law makers are facing re-election.
