As part of a proposed $380 million bond package, state legislators are including $20 million for a new Alaska Department of Fish and Game research facility on Kodiak's Near Island.
The project long has been one of Kodiak's fondest legislative priorities.
The goal is to upgrade Fish and Game's existing building, constructed in 1973, with a new home featuring research capability.
The bond issue would be subject to a vote of Alaskans on election day Nov. 2.
The legislative session ends in six days.
