Another day without progress.
The impasse in the House sets a record.
Alaska’s truly unique when it comes to its constitutional ownership of natural resources and it’s created a critical floor for the state’s finances.
A third appointee of the Dunleavy administration is out.
Dunleavy cited Colorado as a shining example of requiring voter approval of taxes, but it’s also meant “an explosion in fees” and budgeting tricks by the state’s Legislature.
This year legislators are facing competing, often incompatible interests. Will they take the easy way out again?
Gov. Michael J. Dunleavy kept his first State of the State address short and to the point, and the point being that criminals better get the heck outta Alaska because hard-as-nails Gov. Michael J. Dunleavy is gunnin’ for you.
Informal meetings, early confirmations and the governor’s state of the state are on this week’s agenda.
Let’s set aside the juicy rumors swirling around the House “Majority” and the Sharon Jackson fiasco to focus in on some substantive policy issues that are coming into focus.
Another rocky day in the Alaska Legislature.
