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.

Rep. Seaton’s June 17th Newsletter

Good morning on this the 2nd day of the second special session. Last Thursday evening, the House passed a combined capital and operating budget in an attempt to avoid a government shutdown. Combining the two budgets was unusual, but we were running out of time in the first special session to pass the capital budget and we had not yet negotiated a successful operating budget compromise.

Rep. Seaton’s June 12th Newsletter

Greetings from Juneau on this 26th day of the first special session of the 30th Legislature. I continue to work for a sustainable fiscal solution to our state’s declining revenue, but have had little success dealing with the Senate. We are quickly approaching the end of the first special session and if we have not passed a budget within the allowable time, the Governor may call us back into a second special session.

Rep. Seaton’s May 22nd Newsletter

Greetings from Juneau on this the 5th day of the first special session of the 30th legislature. There was discussion and some agreement with the Senate majority to extend the session the constitutionally allowed 10 days. The House Minority would not agree to contribute the five additional votes needed for the House to reach the necessary two thirds vote, so the House and Senate adjourned on Wednesday night, the 121st day of session.

Rep. Seaton’s May 8th Newsletter

Greetings from Juneau this 112th day of session. All last week House Finance heard testimony from various sectors of the economy, from industry leaders and nonprofits to municipalities and economists. The question was: How the state’s current fiscal situation affects their constituency and is there a need for a fiscal plan this year. You can watch Friday’s presentations by Jonathan King of Northern Economics and Caroline Schultz with the Governor’s Office.
