The Weekly Top 3 (6.13.2022)

Is #AKLNG “closer than ever,” our thoughts on Cliff Groh’s fiscal plan & our take on the Special Election Primary and what the results may say about this fall’s #akleg races

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 June 13, 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 take a look at the status of the #AKLNG project and evaluate whether, as some claim, it is “closer than ever” (2:08); 2) we look at Alaska House candidate Cliff Groh’s proposed fiscal plan and how it measures up against the Legislature’s 2021 Fiscal Policy Working Group proposal (17:53); and 3) Michael and I discuss our reactions to the outcome, thus far, of the Special Primary Election, including the insights it may provide into some coming legislative races (28:50).

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.
