There are several opportunities to testify on HB 2001, a bill that will make appropriations from the earnings reserve to set the amount of the PFD for 2019. There is an opportunity to restore the funding that was cut by the governor's vetoes in this bill. The governor could, and likely will veto those attempts to restore funding, but legislators are continuing to work together to gain the needed 8 votes to successfully override those vetoes in another attempt. The work we have collectively done over the last several weeks is making a difference. Keep calling, keep writing, keep sending thank yous, and if you can, show up to testify in Anchorage, Mat-Su, Fairbanks, or Juneau to share your views on the importance of restoring this funding ASAP!
Public testimony opportunities are 2-7 pm with public comments limited to 2 minutes. Sign up to testify by 6:30 pm.
