House Coalition Opposes Executive Pay Increases Before Restoring BSA Education Funding

Today, the Alaska House Coalition stated its opposition to raising government executives’ pay before restoring adequate education funding for Alaska’s students, families, and teachers.


“We will not consider raising pay for high-level executives until we’ve passed a BSA increase to ensure Alaska’s students receive a quality education,” said Minority Leader Calvin Schrage (NP-Anchorage).


“We shouldn’t be raising the administration’s pay while our classrooms are overcrowded and students continue to suffer from years of stagnant funding and rising inflation,” said classroom teacher and Representative Maxine Dibert (D-Fairbanks).


“Our budget should reflect our values, and restoring funding for education is an infinitely higher priority than increasing pay for politicians,” said senior Finance member Representative Andy Josephson (D-Anchorage).
