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 discuss what to look for in Governor’s proposed FY 2018 budget due to be released by Thursday, and take a first look at how the Trump Cabinet picks are likely impact Alaska. I join Michael at 23:10 into the segment. (Note: At the time of the broadcast Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington was rumored to be the likely pick for Secretary of the Interior. Later in the day, however, the transition announced Rep. Ryan Zinke of Montana as the pick. While there are some differences in the positions the two have taken over the years, none of them relate to the development of Alaska’s resources. Thus, the expectations I outlined under Rep. Rodgers remain the same under Rep. Zinke.)
