Tell the Governor What to Do with the Oil Revenue Surplus

Governor Palin has asked Alaskans to voice their opinion on how the state should allocate a potential budget surplus of $1.2 billion.

What a great opportunity for University of Alaska supporters to get their message to the Governor!

This is a really fast and easy survey to take - the question asks: How should the state spend its potential budget surplus? There are various choices, including 'education and workforce development', but it doesn't go as far to say 'higher education'. However, there is an opportunity at the end to voice your opinion in the text box at the bottom of the questionnaire.

This is a perfect opportunity to ask for the Governor's support of the University of Alaska.

Please note: the deadline for comments is December 3rd.

Feel free to share this information with any UA supporters out there. The more input the governor receives before she presents her operating budget on December 15th, the better!

The URL to the Governor's questionnaire is:

Thank you for everything that you do to support the University of Alaska. Your voice and your actions do make a difference!
