Opportunity to Testify on the state budget in the House Finance & Resources Committees!
You can testify via teleconference from Anchorage on:
HB 111- Anchorage LIO from 6:00-TBD Wednesday March 1st You can watch the hearings live, or archived on Gavel to Gavel TV.
HB 57- Anchorage LIO from 1:00-3:15pm on Friday March 3rd. You can watch the hearings live, or archived on Gavel to Gavel TV.
If you are in Anchorage you can testify to the House Finance & Resources Committees on the state budget tonight at 6:00pm and Friday at 1:00pm. Public testimony will be state wide and we hope to hear everyone’s thoughts.
The committee would prefer it if people go in person to the legislative information office which is at 1500 W. Benson Blvd. If you are not able to testify in person or don’t feel like leaving the house feel free to send written testimony to firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be great if you could copy me as well at Rep.Harriet.Drummond@akleg.gov. 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.
