Governor Palin's "Fuel Tax Holiday" Helping Alaskan Consumers

Tuesday, May 19, 2009 1 Response

Here is another example of Governor Palin walking the walking and talking the talking. During the 08 campaign the McCain/Palin ticket proposed a gasoline tax holiday and what do you know Governor Palin & Alaskans consumers have been enjoying savings at the pump.

The "Fuel Tax Holiday" was part of Governor Palin's 2008 energy relief plan. It included a $1,200 resource rebate added onto permanent fund checks. During the 2009 legislative session Democrats failed to extend the one-year fuel tax holiday for two more years.

Once the fuel sales tax holiday ends, every 8¢ Alaskans pour into their gas tanks will go back to the state. It is part of a $40 million revenue. There is also 5¢ for watercraft fuel. 4.7¢ for aviation gasoline, and 3.2¢ for other aviation fuel. At the pump another motorist said, "I don't think its right. I think we should keep the sales tax now, the holiday, until we're at least average with stateside." This budget year $40 million general fund dollars paid for Alaskans fuel tax holiday. September 1 that ends. Replaced by higher gas prices to pick up some road repair costs.

Governor Palin & US Military Commanders Meet To Discuss Iraq, Afghanistan & Alaska

Tuesday, May 19, 2009 1 Response

Juneau, Alaska - Governor Palin and Lt. Gen. (AK) Craig E. Campbell, Adjutant General of the Alaska National Guard, met Monday with General Carroll H. “Howie” Chandler, Commander of the U.S. Air Force (USAF) in the Pacific. General Chandler briefed Governor Palin on current events in the USAF, the status of USAF assets in Alaska, possible deployment levels in 2009 for Iraq and Afghanistan, and the value of training in Alaska.
“It was truly an honor to meet with General Chandler,” Governor Palin said. “His distinguished 35-year military career and previous years as commander of the Alaska Command give him the experience necessary to truly understand the strategic value of military assets in Alaska - particularly the benefit of Alaska airspace and facilities for readiness training exercises. I look forward to working with General Chandler in the future.”
“General Chandler is a good friend and an Alaskan at heart,” Lt. Gen. (AK) Campbell said. “Since his days as commander of the Alaska Command, Gen. Chandler has always looked out for the best interests of the military in our state and he is a tremendous ally for Alaska issues in Washington, D.C.” Alaska is home to both Eielson and Elmendorf Air Force Bases, at least 10 different types of aircraft, about 9,000 airmen and about 12,000 family members. Aviation training occurs year-round with “Red Flag” exercises involving international aircrews conducted every three to four months.
