Opportunities to Testify on Oil Tax Reform,
Ride-sharing, and the Operating Budget

Dear Friends, Neighbors, and fellow Fairbanksans:

Today and tomorrow there are three great opportunities to share your thoughts with the Legislature. To testify on any of these three issues, please go to the Fairbanks Legislative Information Office at 1292 Sadler Way, Suite 308.

This evening, Wednesday March 1, 2017, at 6pm the House Resources Committee will be taking public testimony on HB 111, “OIL AND GAS PRODUCTION TAX; PAYMENTS; CREDITS.” This is your opportunity to weigh in on oil and gas reform measures. You can also email comments to the Resources Committee at lhsres@akleg.gov.

TomorrowThursday March 2 at 1:30pm in the House Transportation Committee, we will be taking public testimony on HB 132, my bill that would allow ride-sharing services like Lyft and Uber to operate in Alaska. (Ride-sharing is now in all 49 other states.) You can also email comments to the House Transportation Committee at lhsctra@akleg.gov.

Also tomorrowThursday March 2 from 3:45 – 6:00pm the House Finance Committee will be taking Fairbanks area public testimony on HB 57 and HB 59 - the Operating Budget and the Mental Health Budget.

The Operating Budget supports the day to day functions of the state, from schools to road maintenance to public safety. It also includes state funding for the University. The Mental Health Budget provides mental health services and infrastructure throughout Alaska.

Here are the details:

Thursday, March 2, 2017               

HB  57-APPROP: OPERATING BUDGET/LOANS/FUNDS

HB  59-APPROP: MENTAL HEALTH BUDGET

Public Testimony:

3:45 – 6:00 p.m. Barrow, Dillingham, Fairbanks testimony

You can also email testimony on HB 57 or HB 59 to housefinance@akleg.gov through 5:00 p.m. Saturday, March 4, 2017.

Again, to testify on any of these three issues, please go to the Fairbanks Legislative Information Office at 1292 Sadler Way, Suite 308. If you are unable to go to your Legislative Information Office, please call the Juneau Legislative Information office at 907-465-4648 for instructions on how to testify telephonically. 

Public Testimony Instructions (provided by the House Finance Committee):

Testify in person or on the phone: Limited to 2 minutes each.  Arrive (or call in) early to expedite the sign in process, and be sure to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the end of the allotted time period or testimony may close early.  If you are a member of a group with the same message, in the interest of time, please select a spokesperson to testify for the entire group.  If you are calling from a community without a legislative information office, i.e., an “Off Net” caller, only call during the designated Off Net time period on March 3rd and 4th; please call 465-4648 by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday through Saturday to obtain the call-in phone number. All Off Net callers are required to hang up immediately after your testimony is taken to keep as many lines open as possible for other callers. Testifiers can continue to listen or watch the meeting online at AKL.tv. The hearing may also be televised on Gavel to Gavel, please check listings.
