STATE OF ALASKA REVENUE OPTIONS – AN INTERACTIVE TOOL FOR ALASKANS
If you could design a solution for the State of Alaska’s revenue challenges, what would it look like? The aim of the Fiscal Policy Study Group is to develop an interactive tool that any (all!) Alaskans can use to do just that – develop their own solution to the State of Alaska’s revenue options.
Join the Fiscal Policy Study Group as we examine Alaska’s revenue options and develop an interactive tool for Alaskans to devise their own solutions to funding state government.
