As regular readers know, 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, however, I also joined Michael a second time on a special, “Fiscal Friday” edition of the show. Michael and I spent the hour working through the various budget proposals currently pending in the House and Senate, their effect on the overall Alaska economy and which legislators are living up to their self-styled claim to be fiscal conservatives and which aren’t (for example, did you know that in an on the record roll call vote Thursday in the Senate State Affairs Committee Senators Cathy Giessel and John Coghill voted with Democrat Senator Dennis Egan and over the objection of Senators Mike Dunleavy and David Wilson to advance the Governor’s PFD-cutting fiscal plan).
The clip starts at my segment. Listen here or at the widget below for the discussion. For past episodes of my discussions with Michael Dukes, go here.
