The Weekly Top 3 (2.7.2022)
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 February 7, 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 that while the federal infrastructure bill does bring significant benefits to Alaska, it also comes at some cost that needs to be accounted for as well (1:59); 2) we discuss some important assumptions built into the newly released analysis of the #AKLNG project (12:06); and 3) we explain our concerns about the recent push for a return to defined benefit programs for certain state employees (21:11).
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.
