"Dear Speaker Phillips:                                                        
Under the authority of art. III, sec. 18, of the Alaska Constitution, I am     
transmitting legislation making appropriations for formula-funded              
expenses for fiscal year 1996.  AS 37.07.020 requires the Governor to          
submit an appropriation bill to authorize proposed expenditures to the         
Legislature before the fourth legislative day.  In addition to the             
attached bill for "formula-funded programs," I am transmitting one for         
"general government operations."                                               
The bills I am introducing reflect the budget turned over to me by my          
predecessor on December 5 and which I presented to you on December             
15, 1994.  We continue to review these documents and analyze their             
effect upon the services the state provides.  In February, I will transmit     
to you amendments that will reflect the budgetary priorities of my             
The programs included in this appropriations bill represent the fastest        
growing area of state government.  I look forward to working with the
