GUEST COMMENTARY: It’s time to accept the governor’s compromise

It’s time to accept the governor’s compromise.

We must end the standoff in Juneau because the option of doing nothing is devastating to Alaska, and delivers a crippling blow to our fragile economy. Another year of stalemate would deplete our reserves and would fail to reverse our slide into recession.

COMMENTARY: Stable tax policies, balanced fiscal plan required for a stronger Alaska

Alaska is at a tipping point and Alaskans have a choice to make: Either keep Alaska competitive and fix our fiscal crisis or continue down a path that ends in a failed economy.

We are co-chairs of the KEEP Alaska Competitive Coalition, a broad-based group of Native corporations, unions, businesses and individual Alaskans who understand that fair and consistent tax policies for our resource industries are essential for Alaska’s economic future.

We are 5,000 members strong. We are not the oil industry and we take no funding from the oil companies.
