    A head-spinning new government revenue forecast from Gov. Bill Walker's administration predicts $200 million extra to help close Alaska's nearly $3 billion deficit along with substantially higher-than-expected oil production this year - even as it still suggests a precipitous production decline next year. Some Republican lawmakers are saying that the forecast, by Gov. Bill Walker's administration, plays into Walker's calls for a restructured Permanent Fund and other measures to resolve the state's massive budget deficit.

    Alaska lawmakers set new limits Tuesday on their annual state-paid trips to and from Juneau - a move that comes after a senator billed the state more than $20,000 in two years to ship appliances, power tools and a piano to his rural village. The Legislative Council - the bipartisan House-Senate committee that oversees the Legislature's own spending - unanimously approved lowering the cap on lawmakers' shipments of "household goods " to 3,000 pounds from 10,000 pounds.

  14. Alaska spends far less on government than it did two years ago. But is it 'right-sized' yet?Read the original story w/Photo

    Mar 24, 2017 | Anchorage Daily News

    As the Legislature considers taxing Alaskans and reducing their Permanent Fund dividends to help close the state's $3 billion deficit, is state government still big enough to sustain more budget cuts? Or is the call to keep shrinking state spending rooted in political ideology, not the reality of governing. One possible sign of an answer: After big reductions in each of the past two legislative sessions, lawmakers are having trouble finding more services that they're willing to cut to close the state's budget hole.
