Legislators react to Palin budget cuts and priorities

It will take lawmakers and community leaders time to comb through the Governor’s budget plan, but some had skimmed through summaries today. Alaska Municipal League director Kathie Wasserman says at $60 million, the proposed municipal revenue sharing money is the same as the last budget, although originally the Governor had proposed $75 million last year and the legislature cut it to the $60 million this year. She says in 1986 revenue sharing was $141 million.
