The Weekly Top 3 (5.23.2022)
The Gov’s upcoming decision on the budget, why some views of a “reasonable” PFD differ greatly from Gov Hammond’s vision & is there a “but” behind Santos’ recent comments on Pikka
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 May 23, 2022.
The Weekly Top 3 is a regular weekly segment on The Michael Dukes Show. The Show broadcasts on Facebook and YouTubeLive as well as via streaming audio from the Show’s website weekdays from 6–8am. I join Michael weekly in the first hour of Tuesday’s show, from 6:25–7am, for a discussion between the two of us about our three issues.
This week our Top 3 issues are these: 1) we discuss what the difference is between what the Governor should — but likely on the other hand will — do with the budgets the legislature has sent him (2:08); 2) we use a recent Twitter exchange to explain how some think, in their words, a “reasonable” PFD should be determined and how that differs (significantly) from Governor Hammond’s vision (20:33); and 3) we discuss the current status of Santos’ Pikka project and whether there’s a silent “but” sitting behind their recent positive statements (31:00).
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.
