Also transmitted was a copy of the following letter dated June 10,                                  
2004, to Phil Younker, Sr., Chair, Alaska Mental Health Trust                                       
Authority:                                                                                          
                                                                                                    
"Dear Mr. Younker:                                                                                  
                                                                                                    
In accordance with AS 37.14.005(c), this letter describes changes                                   
made by the legislature to the Governor's amended comprehensive                                     
FY05 mental health and developmental disabilities services budget                                   
proposal.  The enclosed reports compare CCS HB 377 to the                                           
Governor's proposal rather than to the Authority's proposal because the                             
Governor did not transmit the Authority's proposal to the Legislative                               
Finance Division.                                                                                   
                                                                                                    
The legislature made no changes to funding levels for Mental Health                                 
capital projects, but did substitute general funds (GF/MH) for the                                  
proposed appropriation of Alaska Housing Finance Corporation                                        
dividends.  This action was taken to ensure more accurate tracking of                               
appropriations for mental health programs.                                                          
                                                                                                    
Based on perceived need, the legislature appropriated $1,189,800                                    
more General Fund/Mental Health funds for operating purposes than                                   
was requested by the Governor.  Funding for a Court coordinated                                     
resources project accounted for $148,500 of the total, and $1,032,400                               
in additional funding went to the Department of Health and Social                                   
Services.  Programs affected include Behavioral Health ($558,800)                                   
and Home and Community Based Care ($437,500).  Minor increases                                      
in other programs, in various agencies, were the result of adjustments                              
for the cost of employee benefits.                                                                  
                                                                                                    
We appreciate the good working relationship that has been established                               
between the Trust and the legislature; it has enabled us to address                                 
many issues in creative and efficient ways that would not otherwise be                              
possible.

The Fiscal Year 2005 budget that I proposed last December                                           
represented a $245 million spending reduction from Fiscal Year 2003.                                
To get government back to basics, the administration prioritized state

services-while saving money-in order to increase investment in                                      
programs that meet the state's traditional responsibilities to citizens.                            
We proposed, and the Legislature agreed, to add 20 Alaska State                                     
Troopers-the largest one-time addition in memory.  Once criminals                                   
have been arrested, we want them off the street.  We proposed, and the                              
Legislature agreed, to add nine criminal prosecutors.  Lack of                                      
commitment to convicting criminals over the last decade left the state                              
without prosecutors to handle the more than 70 percent increase in                                  
felony cases.  This budget adds more prosecutors than in the last ten                               
years combined.                                                                                     
                                                                                                    
The greatest investment we can make in the growth and diversity of                                  
our economy is to invest in education.  Funding for the K-12 base                                   
student allocation will increase $82 million, bringing the state's                                  
investment in K-12 support to $805 million-35 percent of the state's                                
general fund operating budget.  Another $229 million in state general                               
funds will be invested in the University of Alaska, which represents an                             
increased $16 million investment.  (Funding for K-12 education and                                  
the University were included in FCCS SB 283 (Corrected)).                                           
                                                                                                    
The Legislature also agreed to invest an additional $12 million to                                  
develop Alaska's natural resources, which are key to Alaska's future.                               
This budget more than doubles the state's investment in the                                         
Department of Natural Resources' work to develop the state's oil and                                
gas.  The additional funding will enable the Division of Oil and Gas in                             
the Department of Natural Resources to further its work on oil and gas                              
lease sales, such as Alaska Peninsula and National Petroleum Reserve-                               
Alaska.  This includes $5.5 million to support the department's work                                
on permitting and processing the stranded gas applications for a future                             
gas pipeline.  This also includes $5.1 million that will be invested in                             
the Department of Revenue's work to bring Alaska's North Slope                                      
natural gas to market.  We have made a lot of progress over the last                                
year in getting Alaska's natural gas to market.  I am confident that with                           
this additional investment we will provide a road map for realizing the                             
value of our North Slope gas both in-state and in the markets beyond                                
our borders.                                                                                        
                                                                                                    
Just as I did in Fiscal Year 2004, I challenged the Legislature to keep                             
Fiscal Year 2005 spending below the current year and set a goal of not                              
using more than $400 million of the state's reserve funds, or

Constitutional Budget Reserve (CBR) to prop up spending.  In terms                                  
of overall spending, the Legislature's approved spending was $17                                    
million higher in general funds over Fiscal Year 2004.  Based on the                                
Department of Revenue's spring forecast, the projected draw from the                                
CBR would have been $371.2 million for Fiscal Year 2005.                                            
                                                                                                    
I have made $4.3 million in general fund vetoes in the Fiscal Year                                  
2005 operating budget.  Each is discussed below.  Of this amount, $1.2                              
million will come from savings in travel.  These initiatives are part of                            
our on-going effort to improve the state's business practices.  We are                              
not finished with reducing the size of government and remain focused                                
on the state's bottom line.  We are working to ensure the state gets                                
value for every dollar spent and that programs are effective in                                     
delivering results for Alaskans.                                                                    
                                                                                                    
The following are the vetoes I have made in the Fiscal Year 2005

This would have added an additional position to work with the Local                                 
Boundary Commission.  In light of the challenge of trying to balance                                
spending with revenues, the funding for this new position was vetoed.                               
The department will have to re-prioritize its workload to meet other                                
demands.

The state's support to this non-profit organization has declined over the                           
years.  Providing a grant to an organization that provides legal                                    
assistance to individuals is not a basic responsibility of state

believe that management efficiencies can be found within the library's

The Legislature added funding for electronic records management.                                    
The reality of trying to balance the state's budget means that initiatives                          
such as this need to be funded internally by re-prioritizing and finding                            
efficiencies that will free up funding.

The general fund deposit into the Alaska Marine Highway System                                      
fund was reduced to $31 million.  This reduction was possible due to                                
the savings expected from the recently negotiated contracts with the                                
marine highway unions.  The Legislature also appropriated an                                        
additional $8 million to the fund.  This veto will not result in a

The funding, appropriated to the Department of Law, was for a clerk                                 
to assist with collection of the new fees.  Instead, the department will                            
accomplish the necessary tasks with existing resources and work with

This funding, appropriated to the Department of Corrections, was for                                
three project managers for planning and construction of new                                         
correctional facilities.  Regardless of my decision on whether to sign                              
this legislation into law, the department will not need these positions                             
during Fiscal Year 2005.  At this time the administration is not willing                            
to jeopardize the state's debt rating by incurring new state-backed debt                            
to build new facilities.  The administration has been clear that only                               
when a long-term fiscal solution is in place will it support new debt.                              
At that time the necessary project managers can be hired.

This funding, appropriated to the Department of Administration for the                              
Public Defender Agency, would have funded a new attorney.  The

· SB 231 - Decrease Time to Claim Unclaimed Property - $30,000                                      
The funding, appropriated to the Department of Revenue, was reduced                                 
from $60,000.  The department will re-prioritize work performed by

Department budgets were reduced by $375,700 in general funds for                                    
expected savings in travel costs (the University's $250,000 in savings                              
brings the total to $625,700).  Another $904,500 was taken in

In spite of the increased level of investment made in key programs                                  
discussed earlier, approved spending from all appropriation measures                                
is basically flat when compared to Fiscal Year 2004.  With the                                      
customary addition of a $12.5 million placeholder for supplemental                                  
spending next session, overall general fund spending after vetoes for                               
Fiscal Year 2005 is $13.5 million higher.  When compared to Fiscal                                  
Year 2003, spending has been reduced by $163 million.  The projected                                
CBR draw, based on the Alaska Department of Revenue's Spring                                        
revenue forecast of $28.30 per barrel, is $360.6 million.                                           
                                                                                                    
The current high oil prices have given Alaska's finances a slight                                   
reprieve.  For some, it may also have served as political permission to                             
avoid making politically challenging decisions to bring stability and                               
certainty to state finances and public services.  This administration's                             
plan is for the state to live within its means and develop its resource                             
wealth.  This includes managing not only our natural resources but                                  
also our financial resources wisely.                                                                
                                                                                                    
                                                                                                    
We need to protect the value of our Permanent Fund for future                                       
generations of Alaskans.  And we need to decide, together as                                        
Alaskans, on the wisest use of the income from the growing fund.  I                                 
have advocated putting dividends first because our economy and                                      
individual Alaskans depend on them.  After dividends are paid, I                                    
believe we should make sure we have enough money for education                                      
and that we provide some assistance to help keep the lights on and                                  
reduce the property tax burden in communities around the state.                                     
                                                                                                    
I will continue to work with the Legislature and all Alaskans on these                              
financial issues. But we should not let debate over how to manage our                               
bank account take our eye off our job.  Job one is to develop our                                   
resource wealth to provide hope and opportunity for all Alaskans.                                   
Developing our resources is the best way to fund the basic priorities of                            
government-education, public safety, transportation, and public                                     
health-and to grow our Permanent Fund.

The Legislature added nearly $1.2 million in additional general funds                               
to the mental health operating budget for a coordinated resources                                   
project in the Alaska Court System and added funds to the Behavioral                                
Health and Home and Community Based Care programs in the

of the mental health capital projects put forward by the administration.

The Fiscal Year 2005 capital budget continues to invest limited state                               
dollars in basic infrastructure.  Of note is that of the capital budget's                           
overall $1.56 billion in appropriations, $1.45 billion will come from                               
federal funds and only $117.3 million is from state funds.  Federal                                 
support ranges from $232.8 million for airport improvements; $411.2                                 
million for surface transportation projects; $61 million for village safe                           
water projects; $20.9 million for Pacific coastal salmon recovery                                   
efforts; to $5.5 million for a voter registration and election                                      
management system.                                                                                  
                                                                                                    
In terms of state dollars, only $8.8 million in general funds are tapped.                           
This was possible because of the Alaska Student Loan Corporation's                                  
ability to provide revenue bond proceeds to fund capital                                            
improvements.  This will save approximately $250 million in general                                 
funds over three fiscal years and have no impact on the corporation's                               
ability to meet the needs of student loan borrowers.

Based on my review of FCCS SB 283 (Corrected), I have vetoed two                                    
sections for the reasons described below:                                                           
                                                                                                    
                Section 47(c) - Alaska Travel Industry Association - $700,000                    
      In Fiscal Year 2004, ATIA was unable to meet the statutory match                              
      requirement for marketing funds.  This section converted the                                  
      unmatched balance to a grant, thereby circumventing the intention                             
              of state law.  For this reason, I have vetoed the appropriation.                     
                                                                                                    
      Section 59 - University of Alaska - $250,000                                                
      This reduction reflects the University's estimate of how much it                              
      will save in travel costs.  Additional savings by other departments                           
      are reflected in reductions in the Fiscal Year 2005 operating                                 
      budget (CCS HB 375).                                                                          
                                                                                                    
                                                                                                    
In spite of increased investment in priority programs, approved                                     
spending from all appropriation measures is basically flat when                                     
compared to Fiscal Year 2004.  With the customary addition of a                                     
$12.5 million placeholder for supplemental spending next session,                                   
overall spending after vetoes for Fiscal Year 2005 is $13.5 million                                 
higher.  When compared to Fiscal Year 2003, spending has been                                       
reduced by $163 million.  The projected Constitutional Budget                                       
Reserve draw, based on the Department of Revenue's spring revenue                                   
forecast of $28.30 per barrel, is $360.6 million.                                                   
                                                                                                    
The current high oil prices have given Alaska's finances a slight                                   
reprieve.  For some, it may also have served as political permission to                             
avoid making politically challenging decisions to bring stability and                               
certainty to state finances and public services.  This administration's                             
plan is for the state to live within its means and develop its resource                             
wealth.  This includes managing not only our natural resources but                                  
also our financial resources wisely.                                                                
                                                                                                    
We need to protect the value of our Permanent Fund for future                                       
generations of Alaskans.  And we need to decide, together as                                        
Alaskans, on the wisest use of the income from the growing fund.  I                                 
have advocated putting dividends first because our economy and                                      
individual Alaskans depend on them.  After dividends are paid, I                                    
believe we should make sure we have enough money for education                                      

2004-09-07                     House Journal                      Page 4556
and that we provide some assistance to help keep the lights on and                                  
reduce the property tax burden in communities around the state.                                     
                                                                                                    
I will continue to work with the Legislature and all Alaskans on these                              
financial issues. But we should not let debate over how to manage our                               
bank account take our eye off our job.  Job one is to develop our                                   
resource wealth to provide hope and opportunity for all Alaskans.                                   
Developing our resources is the best way to fund the basic priorities of                            
government-education, public safety, transportation, and public                                     
health-and to grow our Permanent Fund.                                                              
                                                                                                    
To these ends, I look forward to working with the Legislature and                                   
Alaskans on these critical issues.  Alaskans deserve leaders who will                               
take responsibility today for Alaska's tomorrow.

      Chapter No. 160, SLA 2004                                                                     
      [Effective Date:  July 23, 2004]                                                              
                                                                                                    
                                                                                                    
I have consistently supported finding a solution to the chronic problem                             
of prison overcrowding in Alaska.  Over a decade of gridlock has led                                
to the failure to improve on what was supposed to be a temporary                                    
solution of sending prisoners to Arizona.  The result has been the                                  
placement of more and more prisoners into community housing                                         
alternatives and the constant transferring of prisoners between                                     
locations to ensure the integrity of the system, all of which runs the                              
risk of compromising the level of public safety being provided to                                   
Alaskans.

Working with the Legislature, we have ended the gridlock.  This bill                                
will give the state the authority to address many needs, including both                             
pretrial and long-term incarceration of criminals across the state.  It                             
will give the state the authority to pursue a large facility in the Mat-Su                          
Valley, to reduce prison costs and ease the overcrowding in other                                   
areas.  It will allow the state, subject to specified restrictions, to                              
replace the Kodiak jail and the jail in Dillingham.  It will also allow                             
the state to expand the Anchorage Correctional Complex, if federal                                  
money becomes available. The expansions authorized in this bill will                                
enhance the level of public safety afforded to the people of Alaska by                              
providing a stable and adequate supply of prison beds to house those                                
criminals who choose to victimize our citizens.                                                     
                                                                                                    
And finally, this bill will generate good paying, long-term jobs for                                
Alaskans and end the export of over $14 million per year to Arizona.                                
                                                                                                    
In addition to my support of finding a solution to the prison                                       
overcrowding, I have consistently advised the Legislature that it                                   
should adopt a long-range fiscal plan for the State of Alaska.  I believe                           
the state needs to be on a solid financial footing before it authorizes a                           
program of new borrowing that ultimately relies on the credit of the                                
state.                                                                                              
                                                                                                    
The state's credit has been under the cloud of a formal negative                                    
outlook by Moody's since August of 2002.  The amount of debt                                        
authorized in this bill coupled with a lack of a long-range fiscal plan                             
causes concern, the greatest of which is a potential negative effect on                             
the state's credit rating.  A downgrade of the state's credit could cost                            
Alaska communities more each year in added interest.  Even with                                     
petroleum revenues and one-time reserves paying state interest costs,                               
Alaskans who pay property taxes to a city with debt, have a student                                 
loan, or have a home mortgage with a state agency would realize                                     
increased costs from a credit downgrade.  A credit downgrade would                                  
be much like a hidden tax on Alaskans.                                                              
                                                                                                    
I have made a commitment to the rating agencies that the state will not                             
incur additional debt until recurring revenues match expenditures.  I                               
maintain that commitment and my signature of this bill is not an                                    
indication of our intent to immediately move forward with the $850                                  
million in potential debt authorized in this legislation.                                           
                                                                                                    

2004-09-07                     House Journal                      Page 4560
I will still mandate that, before actual bonding or significant debt                                
instruments can be issued, there must be a satisfactory repayment                                   
ability that will not jeopardize the state's AA bond rating.  The                                   
responsibility to assure that the credit rating is not put in jeopardy is                           
the joint responsibility of the Legislature and the administration.  It is                          
further understood that my administration, including the commissioner                               
of Corrections and the State Bond Committee, will not initiate any                                  
action inconsistent with the state debt policy as articulated by the                                
Office of the Governor.                                                                             
                                                                                                    
There are several provisions included in the bill that I will use to                                
ensure my commitment is maintained.  First, the bill provides the                                   
Department of Corrections the option to enter into lease-purchase                                   
agreements for new or expanded facilities.  There is no mandate.                                    
Second, the authorization remains in effect until 2009.  Third, lease-                              
purchase agreements are subject to approval by the state bond                                       
committee made up of the commissioners of Revenue, Commerce, and                                    
Administration and the state bond committee will not approve debt                                   
that will result in a downgrading of the state's credit rating.  Fourth,                            
the bill restricts the Department of Correction's authority to sign lease-                          
purchase agreements if any bonds issued for the projects would be                                   
rated below investment grade.  Finally, certificates of participation                               
authorized under the bill are restricted if the issuance would lower the                            
state's credit rating and the certificates are rated below investment                               
grade.                                                                                              
                                                                                                    
I look forward to working with the Legislature and Alaskans to                                      
address the long-term fiscal needs of the state and the need to house                               
our prisoners.
