AFP Hosts ‘Securing Alaska’s Future’ with Governor

Mar 20, 2019 by AFP

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Americans for Prosperity-Alaska (AFP-AK) is pleased to host a policy forum with Governor Dunleavy and other policy experts to discuss how and why Alaska must face its fiscal reality and implement reforms that will curb the government’s habit of overspending. The team of policy experts will feature the Governor and budget experts, along with a panel discussion, who will discuss how a spending cap and a Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) can curb wasteful spending in Juneau. Governor Dunleavy and members of his administration will present how his budget could help alleviate the overspending from years past that has put Alaska’s financial future at risk.

The event is free and open to the public. The amount of interested attendees will likely exceed the capacity of the venues, so AFP is directing those wishing to attend sign up via a registration link found on the group’s Facebook page. It is first come first serve and only those that have registered will be permitted to attend.

AFP-AK State Director Ryan McKee released the following statement:

“We’re looking forward to traveling across the state and educating all Alaskans on how Juneau can curb its habit of wasteful spending through meaningful spending reform like implementing a spending cap and a Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights. We’re also excited to join Governor Dunleavy and his administration to highlight their plans to address the fiscal situation. This event is free and open to the public and we look forward to having a meaningful discussion on the issues facing Alaska.”
