The best interview I have done on #SB 21 and Alaska’s fiscal future …

Over the past few years I have done a number of radio — and even television — interviews  on Alaska oil policy, and as it was being formulated and after it passed, SB 21, Alaska’s current approach to oil taxes.

In all that time, however, I don’t recall doing a better, more focused and succinct  interview on the topics than this past Tuesday with Chris Story on 700 AM KBYR, News and Talk of Alaska.  A podcast of the interview is available here (starting at 10:05, running to 30:40).

The first part of the interview focuses on the issues surrounding SB 21.  Right before the break the discussion appropriately transitioned to a conversation about current state spending levels and where Alaska is heading as a result.  I couldn’t have scripted a better discussion on both topics if I had tried.  If you have 20 minutes and are interested, listening to the podcast is probably as good a use of time on the topics as reading some of the other posts on these pages.
