The Weekly Top 3 (7.26.2021)

Welcome to The Weekly Top 3 — our look at the top 3 things on our mind this week — for the week of July 26, 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 discuss Sen. Hoffman’s hint about where the legislature’s Fiscal Policy Working Group may be headed as well the comments we intend to file (1:50); 2) we make our point about the gaping hole in Gov Dunleavy’s fiscal policy in graphic form (26:36); and 3) the good news/bad news from the North Slope: Hilcorp is drilling again in Prudhoe, but the Pikka project is in flux. (35:20).

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.
