Rep. Claman’s Newsletter: The Budget- Process and Public Testimony, Anchorage Caucus Recap, Survey

Everyone in the Legislature understands that the budget is the most important issue that we will consider this year. We are now 44 days into the 90 day legislative session, and you now have the opportunity to exercise your right to be heard on the budget. The Legislature is in the process of making tough decisions about government programs and services, the level at which we will fund programs and changes, and how to continue a strong state economy. Hearing from you about your thoughts and suggestions about the budget is always helpful as we continue to discuss and make decisions about the budget.

Here in Juneau, we’ve been learning about an innovative way to address Railbelt electricity costs that I would like to share with you.

The budget and the legalization of recreational marijuana continue to be big themes this legislative session. The Legislature is waiting for Governor Walker’s detailed budget so we can start discussions and make decisions about program funding. Look for a survey in your mailbox that asks questions like, “What should be the Legislature’s top priorities in funding governmental services?” In the meantime, feel free to call or email me with your comments and suggestions.
