State Spending

By Nancy Amend

Cut government spending first! Once a tax is implemented it will only increase with mis/overspending not being resolved. Alaska's government has 95% of the PFD, why are they taking any of the people's 5%?

Is any of what we are paying in property taxes designated for the State? What is the cost for the State to set up more programs and a department to implement taxes?

Stop the Spending! Stop growing government!
