Budget cuts corrected
To the Editor:
A possible objective look at our new governor’s budget to me looks as follows:
1. The governor only needs 16 votes to keep any of his budget cuts the legislators want to overturn. The legislature needs 46 to overturn a veto.
2. In the legislative public forum on Tuesday, March 5, over 50% of the respondents supported the governor’s cuts and wanted their $3,000.
3. The majority of Alaskans probably do not need libraries, pools, rec. centers, schools, ferries, medical facilities, senior services, Medicaid, public radio, etc. They want a $3,000 PFD.
