The Alaska Gasline Development Corporation presented to Senate Finance committee yesterday. I raised some concerns about how the project will be funded.

The Governor’s FY19 budget proposal increases agency expenses by approximately $280 million. Even with a structured draw from the Permanent Fund in place, the state will still have a budget deficit of over $850 million. In his State of the State address, the Governor said budget cuts are off the table, but 62% of my constituents have asked me to make responsible reductions before discussing new revenues. As a conservative Republican, it is my core principle to put downward pressure on the budget, especially when there is a deficit. Saying cuts are off the table is irresponsible and unacceptable to me and my constituents. #akleg
Director of OMB Pat Pitney presented the Governor's FY19 budget proposal to Senate Finance this week. I am very concerned that the Governor's budget increased from FY18 while we still have an enormous budget deficit. #akleg
