WHAT: Town Hall meeting to discuss legislative issues

WHERE: Pike’s Landing, 4438 Airport Way, Fairbanks, Alaska

WHEN: 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Sunday, October 8, 2017

Join me for a town hall meeting with visiting guests: Speaker of the House Bryce Edgmon (Dillingham); Majority Whip Rep. Louise Stutes (Kodiak); House Resources Committee Co-Chair Rep. Andy Josephson (Anchorage); and Office of Management and Budget Director Pat Pitney. I think it’s important for people in Fairbanks to hear from legislators representing other areas of the state; and even more important for legislators from around the state to hear from the people of Fairbanks.

Town Hall flyerIf you want to join a discussion on fiscal and public safety challenges, as well as natural resources, wolf control, and fisheries habitat, please join us Sunday. The meeting is open to the public and will include time for questions and answers.

Special Session October 23

The Governor has called the Legislature back to Juneau for aspecial session starting October 23 to consider a broad-based tax bill and criminal justice reform.Permanent Fund restructure legislation is not on the special session call.

The Governor's latest tax bill calls for a 1.5% tax on wages and self-employment income. The tax is capped at $2200 or twice the PFD amount the previous year - whichever is larger. No other state has an income tax that is capped. If this bill passes, Alaska would still have the lowest taxes in the nation. The tax would raise about $300 million annually in revenue for the State, with 15% of that revenue coming from non-resident workers.

Criminal justice reform issues will also be considered during the special session. SB54 would makes changes to last year’s SB91, including increased criminal penalties and sentencing for both first time and repeat offenders.

Have a wonderful week and I hope to see you at the Town Hall this Sunday.

Best Wishes,

signed: Adam Wool
