Thank you, Rep. Paul Seaton, for sponsoring HB182 which would bring back a state income tax in Alaska. We can only cut so much from the budget without causing serious, even irreparable harm. As oil revenue shrivels, due to low crude prices perhaps compounded by recent legislation, we must find new revenue sources. An income tax is the fairest way to include all Alaskans (and workers from Outside) in the process of funding our government.
I am proud to have you as my representative, Paul.
