Opportunity to Testify on the state budget in the House Finance Committee!

You can testify via teleconference from Anchorage at the Anchorage LIO from 1:00-4:30pm on Wednesday March 2. You can watch the hearings live, or archived on Gavel to Gavel TV.

Rep. Steve Thompson, and Rep. Mark Neuman, Co-Chairs of the House Finance Committee.
Rep. Steve Thompson, and Rep. Mark Neuman, Co-Chairs of the House Finance Committee.

If you are in Anchorage you can testify to the House Finance Committee on the state budget tomorrow 1:00-4:30pm. Yesterday the committee heard from Juneau residents, and they are working their way around the state. Tomorrow is Anchorage’s turn.

The committee would prefer it if people go in person to the legislative information officewhich is at 716 W 4th Avenue between H and G streets. If you are not able to testify in person or don’t feel like heading downtown feel free to send written testimony to It would be great if you could copy me as well at Again, looking forward to hearing from you.

There are lots of budget cuts, and there has been big turnout for the public testimony so far. Many people have asked the committee to reconsider cuts to behavioral health in particular. For a more in depth breakdown of the proposed cuts to each department please see our last newsletter.

Along with voting, public testimony is one of the most democratic things we can do to make our voices heard—and ultimately make Alaska a better place.
