If we have to go there …

We started running an online ad campaign today explaining our views on how Alaska should raise so-called “new revenues” for government, if we have to go there.  The video is above. For those interested, the full slidedeck used in the video is at our Slideshare page at https://goo.gl/Xxw9Rb, and a more detailed commentary explaining our position is here, at Page Two of our blog, https://goo.gl/trVzaQ.

This week (September 19, 2017) on the Michael Dukes Show

Each Tuesday morning at 7:20 am Alaska, I join KBYR AM700‘s The Michael Dukes Show to discuss the latest in Alaska oil and fiscal issues. This week Michael and I take turns taking on Tim Bradner’s recent piece in the ADN on fiscal policy (goo.gl/TaS6eP) and then take a couple of calls, including one from longtime #AKleg advisor Don Bullock about the PFD. After listening, some described this episode as “lively.” It’s worth the listen.

My segment is at the YouTube above. Michael’s full show from Tuesday is available from the Show’s Soundcloud page.
