The Weekly Top 3 (4.5.2021)

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of April 5, 2021.

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 are increasingly concerned the combination of some oil price recovery and the incoming federal rescue dollars is leading the legislature to avoid facing up to the state’s fiscal situation yet again (2:04), 2) we take a look at what’s going on with the Alaska economy — most of it is challenging, but its not as bad from an income perspective as one might think (22:04), and 3) we discuss the importance of demonstrating support for SJR 1, Sen Wielechowski’s proposed Constitutional Amendment, at Friday’s Senate Judiciary hearing (29:01).

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.
