I greatly appreciate the Legislature's review and analysis of the Fiscal                            
Year 2006 operating budget proposed by this administration last                                     
December.  This budget continues the basic responsibilities that the                                
state has to Alaskans, whether it is protecting the safety of our                                   
communities and most vulnerable citizens or building an economic                                    
climate that creates good paying jobs for generations of Alaskans.                                  
                                                                                                    
                                                                                                    
Out of the nearly $2.6 billion general fund operating budget, I have                                
vetoed $461,900.00 from the Department of Corrections.  These funds                                 
anticipated the Alaska State Troopers would transport misdemeanant                                  
prisoners to and from Anchorage area correctional facilities for court                              
appearances. This is clearly a local responsibility and, indeed, is                                 
currently being performed by the Anchorage Police Department.  My                                   
veto of this funding is consistent with the discussions between the                                 
Municipality of Anchorage and various members of my                                                 
Administration.                                                                                     
                                                                                                    
                                                                                                    
Over the last two years this Administration has met the challenge of                                
controlling state budget growth through belt-tightening and ambitious                               
initiatives such as Medicaid cost-containment.  Over the same time,                                 
state support for K-12 education has increased nearly 23 percent, a                                 
commitment of which I am most proud.                                                                
                                                                                                    
                                                                                                    
While some are quick to describe the increased Fiscal Year 2006                                     
operating budget as a contributor to "runaway" spending, it's important                             
to note that a significant portion is to fund legislatively mandated                                
formula-driven programs-K-12 education ($70 million), Medicaid                                      
($55 million), and retirement system contributions ($45 million).

As the state enters Fiscal Year 2006, my Administration remains

is to make decisions today that will realize those opportunities                                    
tomorrow.  The capital budget is the state's investment tool by which it                            
can ensure Alaskans have the quality of life they treasure and our

Overall the Fiscal Year 2006 capital budget totals nearly $1.7 billion,                             
which is $264 million less than the prior fiscal year primarily due to a                            
decrease in Federal funding.  Of note, however, is the increased level

important because Alaska can fund state priorities instead of having                                
the Federal government set our priorities because of heavy reliance on                              
Federal dollars for capital improvements.                                                           
                                                                                                    
This year's level of state investment is something Alaska has not been                              
able to afford for many years.  It has enabled the state to meet many of                            
its basic responsibilities-from catching up on the care of our schools,                             
to needed transportation improvements, to getting Alaska's                                          
infrastructure ready for the state's economic future, especially the                                
gasline.                                                                                            
                                                                                                    
The capital budget also includes $32 million for our Roads to                                       
Resources program.  Alaska's wealth is in its natural resources but                                 
there are challenges in gaining access in order to develop.  This                                   
initiative will advance oil and gas development on the North Slope and                              
the Alaska Peninsula as well as advance mining opportunities across                                 
the state.  For example, only yesterday a major new entrant to Alaska's                             
oil and gas industry told me of the importance of the proposed Bullen                               
Point Road to oil and gas development on the North Slope.                                           
                                                                                                    
I am most proud of the commitment made this session to meet the                                     
maintenance needs of schools throughout Alaska.  Since creation of                                  
the Department of Education and Early Development's Major                                           
Maintenance priority list in 1994, this is the first time that the entire                           
backlog of projects has been addressed.  The capital budget                                         
appropriates $74 million in Fiscal Years 2006 and 2007 for school                                   
maintenance.  In other legislation, the school debt reimbursement                                   
program was continued so that larger school districts would be able to                              
address maintenance and school construction needs.  In combination,                                 
more than $286 million will be invested to ensure Alaska's schools are                              
safer and growing communities have the classrooms they need.                                        
                                                                                                    
This capital project funding is in addition to the increased commitment                             
to K-12 education funding in the operating budget.  Fiscal Year 2006                                
funding will increase $70 million, bringing the increase in education                               
funding to 23% during the first three years of this Administration.                                 
Moreover, the Legislature advance funded K-12 by tapping $400                                       
million of the windfall the state received in Fiscal Year 2005.                                     
                                                                                                    

2005-07-01                     House Journal                      Page 2167
In anticipation of gasline development we must get the state's                                      
infrastructure ready so it can transport the construction materials                                 
needed to build the gasline.  The capital budget includes several                                   
projects that will get a start on these roads and bridges.                                          
                                                                                                    
But it is not just transportation of construction materials for which we                            
must prepare; it's also the movement of people.  While Alaska's                                     
population has seen stable growth in recent years, we still have                                    
congested roadways in our major population centers, such as                                         
Anchorage, Kenai, and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough.  The capital                                   
budget includes $94 million to improve movement of local traffic so                                 
Alaskans will have more time with their families and spend less time                                
waiting at crowded intersections.  These improvements also will allow                               
commerce to move more efficiently, thereby helping businesses                                       
transact more quickly with their customers.                                                         
                                                                                                    
For the first time in a number of years, the Legislature appropriated                               
"discretionary" funds to local governments and non-profit                                           
organizations for a wide variety of purposes.  I have vetoed several of                             
these for reasons that follow:                                                                      
                                                                                                    
Reason for veto:  Inadequate documentation submitted to confirm that

Unrestricted Receipts Balances to the Alaska Debt Retirement Fund -                                 
indeterminate amount.  There are several appropriations of federal                                  
unrestricted receipts that are not fully expended or encumbered.  This                              
veto will prevent the unintended consequence of re-appropriating                                    
those balances to the debt retirement fund.

will include a requirement that communities resolve outstanding                                     
financial liabilities to the state or Federal government; have Workers'

Several grants to local governments are for operating costs.  While I                               
have approved the funding this time, it will be important that the                                  
communities find other funding going forward in order to meet these                                 
local priorities on a longer-term basis.                                                            
                                                                                                    
I have also asked the Department of Commerce, Community and                                         
Economic Development to work with the U.S. Department of Energy                                     
to determine the feasibility of the work associated with a mini-nuclear                             
power plant funded in a $500,000 grant to the City of Galena.                                       
                                                                                                    
I am also concerned that a number of grants partially fund projects.                                
High oil prices and the subsequent windfall provided an opportunity                                 
this session for a state grant, but that does not mean there will be                                
similar funding in the future.  As a result, it is important for these                              
communities and organizations to develop a solid finance plan for                                   
each project that does not solely rely on legislative discretionary                                 
funding in the future.
