Policy Positions

Alaska State Legislative Election 2004 National Political Awareness Test

Legislative Priorities

Please explain in a total of 75 words or less, your top two or three priorities if elected. If they require additional funding for implementation, please explain how you would obtain this funding.
- Getting the State's Financial House in Order: Even though the price of oil is high now, we cannot depend on it to remain so. We must develop a long term fiscal plan, even if such a plan will not be implemented until our constitiutional budget reserve is depleted below a minimum level. In other words, come up with a plan now and do not wait for an economic crisis.I also believe that education should be funded early in the legislative session so that school districts can know what to expect earlier each year. Also in this way, our children's education is not a political pawn when the final budget is enacted.
