  11. Alaska needs to scrap four megaprojects that we can't affordRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 8, 2016 | Anchorage Daily News

    Declining production and the steep decrease in oil prices has put Alaska in a full-blown fiscal crisis that is made worse by the state's addiction to pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into megaprojects we cannot afford. Why should we look hard at canceling several transportation and energy megaprojects? They likely are the only source of substantial new revenue for the fiscal year 2017 budget, aside from the unpleasant options of new taxes or tapping the Permanent Fund.

    Long-planned construction work on the Alaska Capitol will likely force lawmakers out of the building if they need more than two extra weeks to get their job done - and it could cause big headaches even sooner and, eventually, serious penalties. Workers will begin four-hour drilling sessions at the Capitol within days of the scheduled end of the 90-day legislative session April 17, with a cost of delay that could hit $33,000 a day once the Legislature's contractors are set up, according to a memorandum sent to lawmakers last week.

    Apr 1, 2016 | Anchorage Daily News

    The director of the $52 billion Alaska Permanent Fund wants the Alaska Legislature to approve a funding request for employee raises, and argues that denials to do so in recent years have helped drive two key executives, including one whose blockbuster investment grew more than 10-fold, to leave for higher-paying jobs. Special opportunities director David Fallace, who left in December and was paid $215,000 annually, led the fund's entry into biotech startups with a highly profitable deal involving Seattle-based Juno Therapeutics.
