Alaska’s Fiscal Challenge: How deep, how long, potential solutions and what they mean for Anchorage

Last month, Joe Riggs, a member of the Anchorage Mayor’s Budget Advisory Commission, and I were asked to make a presentation to the Commission on the current state of the Alaska state budget and the potential implications for the Municipality’s budget.

The conclusion?  Continuing reductions in state support, and, potentially, encroachment on the Municipality’s revenue options.  In other words, squeezed from both ends.

The slide deck we used is at the link above, or available here.
