Oil Revenue - Senate Budget

By RK Rice

"Meanwhile, there is no consideration of oil tax subsidies for which next year's bill will be a cool $1.37 BILLION when the state will earn production taxes of just $87 MILLION. While schools are denied the funding they need, the oil and gas industry rolls along untouched by cuts. The contrast could not be more stark."

Seems very obvious who these senators work for. Not the people of Alaska. Just like trumputin they are going after the people at the bottom. They are shameless.
