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 February 13, 2023.
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 discuss something Larry Persily and the AK Policy Forum have in common — they both want to ignore the best fiscal alternative for Alaska families (2:04), 2) we explore why campaign finance reform doesn’t seem to be on anyone’s agenda this legislature (18:02), and 3) we quantify what Rep. Ortiz’s K-12 funding bill would mean in terms of increased taxes on Alaska families (25:27).
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.
