Gov. Bill Walker this week unveiled his wide-ranging plan to close Alaska’s budget deficit before an enthusiastic audience of business leaders, union officials, and Native corporation executives. But there was scant attendance from state legislators, who have the final power to approve Walker’s ideas, tweak them or kill them off.
In interviews Thursday, lawmakers and observers offered a range of opinions about the plan’s fate, with some saying it presented a good starting point and others saying the proposed budget cuts are just a fraction of those needed before Alaskans will accept the income tax and smaller Permanent Fund dividends that Walker is proposing.
