Fall Special Session Agenda with Governor Bill Walker
Date:Fri, 09/29/2017 - 7:30am
Commonwealth North is proud host a distinguished panel including Governor Bill Walker; Department of Revenue Commissioner Sheldon Fisher; and Scott Kendall, the Governor’s Chief of Staff, to discuss the Governor’s recent call for a special legislative session in October. The Legislature will convene on October 23rd to address public safety issues and raising new state revenue through a payroll tax. On the call are Senate Bill 54, which addresses Class-C felonies, and a bill to enact a flat wage tax. The Governor has proposed a payroll tax of 1.5 percent of wages earned by Alaskans and non-resident workers, capped at $2,200 or twice the previous year’s permanent fund dividend amount—whichever is higher.
