CWN Fiscal Policy Study Group
Friday, August 3rd
301 Arctic Slope Ave
Discussion about the Permanent Fund & New CWN Study
Study Group Co-chair, Eric Wohlforth, will lead a discussion about how the Permanent Fund is managed and the impact of the State’s increasing use of the Earnings Reserve to fund government. This meeting kicks-off as series of discussions we will have to gain a deeper understanding of the Permanent Fund and work toward producing a Commonwealth North report.
Please review Eric’s memo which outlines potential topics for us to study in detail.
