Residents fill three hours with budget, PFD testimony

Mar 25, 2019

        Three members of the House Finance Committee, including the Speaker of the House, were in the Central Peninsula on Saturday, taking testimony on the state of the budget and PFD.

For about three full hours Speaker Bryce Edgmon, Rep. Jennifer Johnston of Anchorage, and Kenai Rep. Gary Knopp heard testimony from all across the spectrum.

          It was reported over the weekend that the Governor's office anonymously paid for commercial radio ads urging people to turn out at the Finance Committee hearing to testify in favor of his budget and a so-called "full" PFD.
