Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of January 7, 2019.
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 our Top 3 issues are these: (1) our thoughts on the coming budget debate as the #akleg session approaches (at 2:33), (2) HB 331 — the oil tax credit bonding bill — survived its first court challenge, but we discuss why we nevertheless believe the upcoming #akleg should kill it (19:55), and (3) what’s being lost in the rhetoric over the “wall”: the fiscal implications of the partial federal shutdown (29:13).
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.
