Dear Neighbors & Friends,
Things are moving quickly down here. The House Finance Committee is taking public testimony on the operating budget - education funding, Medicaid, public safety, corrections, substance abuse treatment, prevention, ferries, public radio, agriculture, Pioneer Homes, and API are just some of the items Alaskans have spoken out in favor of - this is your time to share your vision and priorities. Testimony for us from Anchorage is today at 5 pm. Here is a link to the current version of the bill - http://www.akleg.gov/basis/Bill/Detail/31?Root=HB%20205
After House Finance, then to the House floor, then to Senate Finance when additional public testimony will be taken, then Senate floor, and on to the Governor.
Also, tomorrow is the Anchorage Caucus from 10am – 12 pm at the Anchorage Assembly Chambers at Loussac Library.
