Alaska legislature, Palin face showdown over 'troopergate'

The Alaska Legislature's House and Senate judiciary committees meet Friday in Anchorage to determine whether they'll issue subpoenas to compel members of Gov. Sarah Palin's administration – but not the governor herself – to sit for interviews with an investigator looking into Palin's dismissal of the state's top cop. But that's likely to provoke court action from the state's Department of Law, which represents the governor and has questioned the investigation's legitimacy.
