The Weekly Top 3 (5.2.2022)
FY23 & FY22 Supp UGF spending is exploding, the ADN ed bd effectively calls for middle & lower income #AKfams to fund the Port & why campaign finance reform needs to pass this session
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 May 2, 2022.
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) the huge amount of additional spending that is being layered on the FY23 and FY22 Supplemental budgets as the legislature nears the end of session (2:10); 2) the ADN editorial board essentially calls for middle & lower income #AKfams to bear the brunt of the $600 million requested for the Port of Alaska (22:16); and 3) why we believe campaign finance reform needs to pass and the be signed by the Governor before the session ends (31:21).
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.
