2018 ADVOCACY PRIORITIES
It is important to note that these advocacy priorities do not represent all issues pertinent to the business community. The priorities are determined by the committees and the board of directors on an annual basis. These will be monitored for purposes of updating or adding issues important to the Fairbanks business community.
Government leaders need to pass a responsible budget, in a timely manner, balancing state revenue against expenses. Alaskans need a comprehensive, long-term sustainable fiscal plan promising state funds to essential programs while looking ahead to strategic investing that will promote long-term economic growth.
SUPPORT STAND FOR ALASKA COALITION
Stand for Alaska will work to inform fellow Alaskans of the real dangers of the potential ballot initiative, Stand for Salmon, namely the creation of a job-killing, community damaging regulation that would hurt the state’s ability to develop many of its natural resources. Alaska has a robust permitting process already in place.
