From Sean Cockerham in Anchorage--
Legislators have decided subpoenas aren't needed in the investigation of whether the governor or her aides improperly tried to pressure the public safety department to fire trooper Mike Wooten.
They canceled a Monday committee meeting to talk about what subpoenas to pursue.
The House and Senate judiciary committees were going to meet with Steve Branchflower, the investigator hired by the Legislature to look into the issue. But Branchflower isn't having any problem so far interviewing anyone in the Palin administration that he wants, said state Sen. Hollis French, who is overseeing the investigator.
"It seemed pretty unnecessary to make a big production out of subpoenas when they didn't seem necessary at this point," French said.
Wooten is Gov. Sarah Palin's ex-brother in law.
