Governor Palin Invites Public
Input on Budget
November 26, 2007
(SitNews) - Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is urging Alaska residents
to become involved in the state budget process by participating
in a web survey. "Voices Across Alaska: State Budget Priorities"
is an opportunity for Alaskans to provide their opinion on how
the state's projected budget surplus should be saved and invested.
"We all know oil prices will not remain at record levels
forever, and planning ahead will help ensure that we really are
kicking off a new era of tax stability," said Governor Palin.
"Under ACES, surplus revenue of approximately $1.6 billion
could be realized this year. I hope Alaskans will take advantage
of this opportunity to become part of the process."
The Governor's office will use the input to complete the FY2009
budget plan, which will be released to the public and the Legislature
for consideration in mid-December. Surveys will be accepted
through 5 p.m. on December 3, 2007.
