The Weekly Top 3 (11.26.2018)

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of November 26, 2018.

The Weekly Top 3 is a regular segment on The Michael Dukes Show. I join Michael on the Show each Tuesday from, now 6:20-7am for a discussion between the two of us about the three issues. The Show broadcasts on FacebookLive and via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6-8am.

This week we start with a brief discussion of a couple of things that occurred Monday — Governor Walker’s final draft budget and Governor-elect Dunleavy’s announcement of his selection of OMB Director — (at 2:38) and then turn to the weekly Top 3. They are: (1) why taking “excess” dollars from the ERA — dollars above what is needed to fund Hammond 50/50 — results in a long term PFD cut (7:55); (2) our view of Frank Murkowski’s proposed new LNG option (22:50); and (3) some background on why we may be headed to a partial federal government shutdown (29:23).

The segment is at the YouTube clip above. For those that prefer the audio version, it is available on our Soundcloud page here. For this and other complete podcasts of The Michael Dukes Show, go to the Show’s Soundcloud page here.
