Governor Walker Issues Statement on Trump Administration’s Budget Proposal


May 23, 2017 JUNEAU – Governor Walker issued the following statement concerning the release of the Trump Administration’s full budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2018:


“My team and I are closely examining President Trump’s proposed budget for impacts, both positive and negative, on Alaska. We applaud members of the Trump Administration for their interest in responsible resource development on the North Slope. The National Petroleum Reserve, the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas and ANWR all hold significant promise for Alaska. We look forward to more positive news in the days and weeks to come. However, we are concerned about what some of the deep cuts, if sustained, would mean for crucial services—like air travel for rural residents and infrastructure assistance to villages. We will continue to work with members of our Congressional delegation and the Trump administration to ensure Alaskans are protected.” –Governor Bill Walker
