    Understanding Alaska’s Fiscal Situation
    UAA Institute of Social and Economic Research’s Gunnar Knapp offers a good “big picture” overview of Alaska’s current fiscal situation.   He points out that we are using savings right at a rapid pace now to pay for state services.  He shares the largest “drivers” of the state budget and estimates how long our savings might last at this rate.  He also describes the fiscal options available for closing the deficit.  Full Presentation
    Feds Swing Suddenly Left on Land Use
    After years of permitting some limited resource development in Alaska, the Obama Administration has suddenly adopted hard-left environmental policies in the wake of the November elections.   This cold headwind is thwarting viable oilfield projects as well as putting large and promising areas off limits for exploration.    Full Story


    Alaska Budgets Have Run Amok!
    Alaska's Crushing Workers Comp Costs
    Reliving our economic history from the 1980s? Since the mid 2000s, Alaska state spending exploded from $5 billion to $8.5 billion/year–over 70% increase. This reckless spending pattern is setting up Alaskan families for an economic bust. Full Story   Alaska’s unfortunate position as the highest cost state in the U.S. for workers compensation costs results in a heavy cost burden for our small and medium sized businesses.  The main reason is very high medical fees for even routine procedures, sometimes  as much as 95% higher than those allowed by nearby Washington State.  Full Story


    EVRW 2015: Employees Vote Toolkit

    America works better when Americans vote.

    This September 21-25th, we are participating in Employee Voter Registration Week (EVRW). EVRW is an initiative organized by the business community to encourage employee voter registration. Our belief is that, when employees vote, the business community’s voice is heard. Don't let someone make the decision for you. Get registered. Get out the vote.

    About EVRW

    About EVRW

    In important elections, every vote counts. America works better when Americans vote, but Americans can't vote unless they are registered. There are millions of employees across the US who have not registered to vote. People don't register because they forget, or it's too complicated or time-consuming, or perhaps they have moved and just haven't updated their voter registration.

    The truth is that registering to vote is simple and doesn't take much time or effort.

    Employee Voter Registration Week is an effort to make a dent in the number of unregistered citizens across the country. During this week, companies and associations from the business community will join together in an effort to encourage voter registration among their employees. The initiative will not tell employees how to vote or who to vote for, but instead aims to serve as a resource to help employers educate their employees about the issues that are important to their businesses and a resource for providing key deadlines, voter registration, and polling location information.

    Employee Voter Registration Week is powered by BIPAC, a nonpartisan, membership-driven, organization dedicated to increasing the political effectiveness of America's business community.
