The supplemental also contains $38.0 million in one-time funding for two specific settlements that resolve outstanding litigation. The FY 2012 capital supplemental request totals $20.4 million, of which $10.1 are general funds, and includes emergency repairs to roads and bridges, and repairs to Alaska Marine Highway vessels necessary to meet required U.S. Coast Guard certifications. Thank you for your consideration of this bill. Sincerely, /s/ Sean Parnell Governor"
