Alaska's attorney general says his department will review a sole-source contract awarded to the grandson of a major donor to a group that worked to elect Gov. Mike Dunleavy.

The Alaska Industrial Development and Export Authority last year entered into a contract with Clark Penney.

Attorney General Kevin Clarkson, in a letter to state Reps. Zack Fields and Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins, says he is directing the Department of Law to review the matter in response to concerns they raised and at the request of Dunleavy.

The lawmakers had written Dunleavy, saying they had received conflicting information about the contract.
