Filing seeks hold on Alaska business aid pending changes

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A man is suing the state over plans to distribute federal coronavirus relief aid. He is asking a judge to block disbursement of a portion set aside for small businesses after Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s administration reinterpreted the rules.

    Eric Forrer wants the money to be spent according to "defined standards.” He is seeking a court order that would either halt the disbursement of money set aside for businesses until lawmakers approve what his court filing calls a valid expenditure, or block spending of the funds that do not adhere to a proposal previously ratified by the Legislature.
