Rep. Seaton’s July 26th Newsletter: Capital Budget alert

Greetings! Please see the below press release outlining the draft capital budget compromise between the House and Senate. Links are provided to additional documents and a summary. Once appointed, the capital budget conference committee is scheduled to meet in Juneau at 1pm Thursday, July 27 to review and vote on this draft. Should it pass the conference committee, I anticipate the bill will then move to the House and Senate floors the same day.

Rep. Seaton’s July 17th Newsletter

On Saturday the House and Senate reached a compromise and passed HB 111, the oil and gas tax credit bill, and ended the second special session of the 30th legislature. The compromise takes the immediate step of ending cash credits statewide and includes some sideboards to protect the state from an unaffordable high future liability. Hopefully the public commitment that both bodies made to a working group will ensure that further oil and gas reforms will be addressed. A stable oil and gas tax system that the state can afford is key to a complete fiscal plan and this is a step in the right direction.

Rep. Seaton’s July 10th Newsletter

Greetings on this the 25th day of the second special session. We had a sunny Independence Day last week in Anchor Point and Homer and lots of people turned out to watch the parades. I was also pleased to be on the Coffee Table last Wednesday to discuss items such as the budget and oil and gas reform. These are complicated topics but ones that are important to all Alaskans; I hope listeners found the discussion informative.

NEWS: Special Session Compromise; End Cash Credits Now

Anchorage – The Alaska House Majority Coalition has communicated a proposed compromise to the Alaska Senate Majority to address oil tax credit reform, which is the subject of the ongoing Second Special Session of the 30th Alaska State Legislature. Coalition members support changes to House Bill 111 to end the practice of paying oil companies cash subsidies for certain tax credits. This is expected to save the State of Alaska an estimated $1.5 billion over the next ten years.

Rep. Seaton’s June 26th Newsletter

Greetings from Juneau. Late Thursday evening, the legislature was able to pass an operating budget to avoid a government shutdown. The budget includes several compromises between the House and Senate versions; the final version cuts $128.7 million in unrestricted general fund spending from last year’s budget. The House held strong on the commitment to fully fund K-12 education and pupil transportation.
