Alaskans to comment on directing Permanent Fund earnings to budget rather than, in part, to dividends
By Andrew Kitchenman, APRN State Government and Politics Reporter - Juneau
Alaskans get their first chance tonight (Thursday) to tell legislators what they think of the centerpiece of Gov. Bill Walker's fiscal plan for the state.
The Senate State Affairs Committee will begin hearing public testimony at 5:30 p.m. on Senate Bill 128, which would direct $3.3 billion annually in Alaska Permanent Fund earnings and other state funds to the state budget.
