In a family-oriented message, Governor Sean Parnell said his five-year fiscal plan is like a family budget, and insisted the public is on his side with SB 21.
Gov. Parnell: “More and more Alaskans are voicing support for Senate Bill 21, our legislation to spur new production and create more opportunity for Alaskans. Last week, leaders from Alaska’s 13 Regional Native Corporations called on legislators to continue moving this oil tax reform bill forward. Notably, they highlighted the importance of new production to rural Alaskans.”
Parnell said his plan is simple: limit government’s growth and step down spending levels over the next few years as the state continues to encourage development on the North Slope.
