GUEST COMMENTARY: House Majority: We won’t agree to ‘easy fix’ of PFD cut alone

Last week, in the absence of a true and complete fix to the state’s fiscal crisis from the Alaska Senate, the House passed, with bipartisan support, an amendment funding a full Permanent Fund Dividend as provided by law.

This was not some bargaining tactic or political maneuver; instead, it was us saying that we are fighting for you, hardworking Alaskans, and your money.

We have said from the beginning that we cannot support a plan that fills the deficit on the backs of Alaska workers, seniors and children.

GUEST COMMENTARY: Alaska must stand up to corrupt Real ID Act

I am disappointed that the Walker Administration has given in to the fear tactics and misinformation of the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration by putting forth legislation to make Alaska implement the Federal REAL ID Act and pay for it ourselves. It is my duty to set the record straight and make sure people have the facts they need to defend their rights.
