We are nearing Day 20 of the Legislative Session, and our discussion has revolved around our fiscal situation and the FY2019 budget. We have begun to tackle the Governor’s Proposed Budget, which I’ve outlined below. This newsletter is not acting as a comment of support or opposition of the proposal, but instead a general relaying of information.
Another legislative session has begun! Last Tuesday, we gaveled in and had our first floor session of the year. We dove head first into our Finance Committee meetings with presentations from Office of Management and Budget Director Pat Pitney, Department of Revenue official, the CEO of the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation, and Legislative Finance.
