Rep. Kito’s April 17th Newsletter: Session Overtime Begins

As of Sunday, April 16th we have passed through the statutory end of session, and we are now officially into overtime. Our state budget has passed the House and the Senate, but we have not yet started the conference committee process. There is still work to do on our fiscal plan, and this week we took a major step towards sustainability. With the passage of House Bill 111 and House Bill 115, and passage of the House amendments to Senate Bill 26, we have all of the pieces out on the table to get us much closer to a comprehensive fiscal plan – you can read this for more information.

Greetings from Juneau this 91st day of session. I am proud to report that this past week the House acted on the four pillars of our comprehensive, sustainable fiscal plan. Oil and gas tax & credit reform, HB 111, passed the House on Monday and was heard in Senate Finance and Senate Resources last weekend. The House version of SB 26, creating a structured draw from the permanent fund, moved from the House Wednesday.
