The Weekly Top 3 (1.10.2022)

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind here at Alaskans for Sustainable Budgets — for the week of January 10, 2022.

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

This week our Top 3 issues are these: 1) we explain our concerns about the Governor’s proposal this budget to raise revenues through permanent PFD cuts, without first exploring even obvious revenue alternatives the Administration itself has raised (2:05); 2) we focus on a specific concern raised by former Governor Frank Murkowski hi-lited by the recent termination of Permanent Fund Corporation head Angela Rodell (25:22); and 3) we discuss the positive outlook for current oil production levels outlined in a recent piece by Tim Bradner (32:37).

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