Five Minutes to Better Understand Vetos

Jul 8, 2019

10 days ago Governor Mike Dunleavy issued 168 vetos to items in the state’s operating budget, and 14 more to Mental Health appropriations. Since that time, the news media has reported a lot of information about which parts of the state government are affected, and how grants and private contracts will be cut. It can be pretty confusing if you aren’t familiar with government documents and the state’s website. 

AFP "Roadshow" Comes To Fairbanks

Mar 29, 2019

The Americans For Prosperity presentation series on Alaska’s state budget came to Fairbanks last night. The small-government advocacy organization has been hosting Governor Mike Dunleavy and his economic advisers in several towns in Alaska. The Fairbanks event was both big, with a large protest, and small, with a lower turnout for the presentation.  400 protestors filled the sidewalks nearby, and a few disrupted the presentation, which the governor acknowledged.


Local legislators heard ideas and indignation about Governor Mike Dunleavy’s proposed state budget on Saturday. Bart LeBon, the representative for House District 1 and Steve Thompson, the rep for House District 2, held a joint constituent meeting at Monroe High School in Fairbanks. Citizens spent more time talking about revenue, but they expressed fear and concerns about new reductions after five years of cuts.
