Judicial Retirement System (JRS) - Let me be clear that we have met                                                             
and will continue to meet our obligations to our retirees. The FY 2013                                                          
budget includes $613.9 million for the actuarially required payments                                                            
for all of our systems - JRS, PERS, and TRS. These payments will                                                                
continue. However, I have vetoed the additional lump sum                                                                        
appropriation to the judicial retirement system to pay down the                                                                 
unfunded liabilities of the system for several reasons.

This appropriation would not fully pay down the current unfunded                                                                
liability for JRS, which has now grown to $58 million. In FY 2008, the                                                          
Legislature deposited $49 million into the JRS trust fund. Due to                                                               
market volatility, the liability quickly returned. Unusual volatility                                                           
continues to be a reality in the investment markets. Additionally,                                                              
unless good reason exists to the contrary, we should address each of                                                            
the State's retirement systems consistently. Rather than taking this $50                                                        
million off the table at this time for JRS alone, it is in Alaska's interest                                                    
to further evaluate whether changes are needed with respect to how we                                                           
address the unfunded liabilities of PERS, TRS, and JRS. We should                                                               
continue to explore together the best ways of meeting our goals of                                                              
maintaining the health of the funds and managing the State's costs over                                                         
time. I am committed to working with you on this endeavor.                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
Early Learning Coordination - This year, I have approved an increase                                                            
of $3,867,500 for early learning programs - a 38 percent increase in

of SB 182, to reflect a realistic start up for the program. PAT is a new

evaluate the success of the project, rather than allow explosive growth                                                         
from the outset.                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                
In signing the budget, I also approved one-time funding for the North                                                           
Slope Borough School District (NSBSD) for curriculum alignment,                                                                 
integration, and mapping. It is unusual for this type of project to be                                                          
included in the operating budget, and it is not my intention to                                                                 
encourage school districts to seek designated grants. These projects are                                                        
typically conducted with school district's foundation formula funding.                                                          
However, I believe this project will provide valuable tools for other

     benefits associated with successful treatments would reduce future

Opponents of SB 74 testified that premium costs could go up by three

or justification for that number. Moreover, the legislation's opponents                                                         
failed to present any analysis debunking the proponents' arguments of

proponents' assumptions were misplaced. However, without

weight of testimony and analysis, as well as the Legislature's

     [Effective Date:  September 19, 2012]                                                                                      
                                                                                                                                
This bill provides clarity and consistency in sentencing for those                                                              
experiencing fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). Existing Alaska                                                            
law provides for a mitigating factor in sentencing a defendant who                                                              
suffers from a "mental disease or defect" if other circumstances are                                                            
present. Some courts have found that fetal alcohol spectrum disorder                                                            
falls within the term "mental disease or defect," but other courts have                                                         
found to the contrary, thereby creating disparity. This legislation                                                             
clarifies that ambiguity and inconsistent application of the law.                                                               
                                                                                                                                
On the other hand, I remain concerned about diminishing Alaskans'                                                               
interest in deterring crime. Shorter sentences may not deter further                                                            
offenses without additional treatment. Additionally, I am concerned                                                             
about creating a special mitigating factor for one particular illness or                                                        
disorder, when more medical conditions will knock on legislators'                                                               
doors seeking to be written into law as mitigators, an outcome I would                                                          
seriously question.                                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
However, because the legislation creates more consistent application                                                            
of the law to all defendants; because the proposed mitigating factor

arson in the first degree; and because of the heavy burden on the
