Governor Mike Dunleavy’s budget proposal would cut more than one and a half billion dollars from state spending in one fiscal year. The Governor’s plan would also remove municipal taxing authority over oil infrastructure, redirecting millions of dollars currently in local government control to state authority. Will the Governor’s budget put Alaska on firm fiscal ground or drive the state deeper into recession? We’ll ask on the next talk of Alaska.
