University Budget Testimony Starts Today
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
Happy Valentines Day!
I am chairing the finance subcommittee for the University budget and this week we are soliciting public comments on the Governor’s proposed FY18 budget for the University of Alaska System. The dates for this public comment period begin today, Tuesday, February 14 through Tuesday the 21st. If you have input, I welcome it and encourage you to share your thoughts on the direction and priorities of the University of Alaska.
Your feedback will be utilized as the University of Alaska Sub-Committee develops budget recommendations to send to the full Finance Committee. We will be using the Legislative Information Office’s Public Opinion Message System to facilitate this process. If you wish to send an online POM go to: www.legis.state.ak.us/poms/
You may also mail, fax or hand deliver your signed message to the Fairbanks Legislative Information Office, which is located at the Alaska USA building next to Home Depot at 1292 Sadler #308, 99701. You may also call the Fairbanks LIO at 452.4448.
If you have any questions, please call Seth Whitten, Legislative Aide to Representative Guttenberg, at 456.8172. Your call will be forwarded to our office at the Capitol.
Please keep in mind that the Legislative Information Office is at your disposal year round. We have two public information officers in Fairbanks who are available to answer your questions, or take any comments or concerns you may have.
