Sequester Impacts; And The Latest From The Alaska Legislature

This week on Alaska Edition we discuss the rippling economic effect of federal sequestration cuts and the impact to IHS funding for tribal health facilities across the state. We also run through the legislature’s actions last night on the gas plan for trucking to Fairbanks, the latest on the oil tax overhaul and KABATA getting folded into the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation by the House. The Senate still has to vote on it. We also discussed the Mat Su budget and the proposal for a CDQ harbor in Seward.
