I attended the governor's signing ceremony of the capital budget this morning in Anchorage. The governor came in wearing a “Santa Claus” hat! No comment.

The budget is based on the assumption that the price of oil will remain high, with resultant large revenue to the state. As a practical conservative, I think it’s best to base budgets on conservative assumptions.

A chunk of the capital budget went to roads and bridges – and roads and bridges are typically as controversial as politics and religion! In general, I’m a supporter of roads and bridges. If the gas pipeline ever comes to fruition, we’re certainly going to need better avenues of transportation throughout Alaska.
