Rep. Kawasaki’s Juneau Note: BUDGET ALERT! and Oil Tax Breaks
Two days left to go in the first session of the 28th Legislature and we are working into the night on important issues to shape the future of Alaska.
Alaskans have a $16 billion dollar savings account because state leaders ensured throughout history we get a fair share of OUR oil wealth. The UAF Engineering buildings, Cushman Street Expansion, and Ryan Middle School Renovations, and energy relief for the Interior are just a few examples of projects that are possible because of these wise investment decisions. Billions of dollars each year go to enhance communities – 90% of those dollars come from the development of oil. I will continue to fight on your behalf for those dollars to stay here.
