University Of Alaska Readies For Budget Slash: 'We May Likely Never Recover'

The University of Alaska System is bracing for a 41% cut to its budget, after Gov. Mike Dunleavy vetoed a $130 million line item in the state's budget.

The announcement came last Friday, three days before the fiscal year began on July 1. Dunleavy vetoed roughly $400 million items in the budget, with education receiving the largest cut.

The university system will lose $130 million from the veto — on top of an additional $5 million previously agreed upon by legislators. The governor's 182 line-item cuts also included Medicaid, senior benefit payments and homelessness services.

It's all about voters being ignorant and greedy. The governor promised every voter a $3,000 annual check. That money has to come from somewhere. We need leaders who will tell voters the truth. If you want tax breaks, you must  learn to live with less.

I am thinking of Jindal in Louisiana.  Yet, I do not think he was this bad.

Overwhelmed by the challenges of slashing so deeply, regents cling to faint hopes that some money will be restored.

This is so stupid. Every resident gets a check based on oil revenue....even if they don't have the revenue.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
