"We can spend less and still fully fund the core essentials in government if we prioritize programs and streamline the bureaucracy."
- Rep. Kohring

 

(JUNEAU) - Representative Vic Kohring (R-Wasilla/Mat-Su) was appointed on January 19th by the House Finance Committee to a total of four budget subcommittees, including Education, Administration, Natural Resources and Transportation. These four are part of a total of 18 individual budgets that make up the entire operating budget for the state.

"Although these extra assignments represent a significant responsibility in addition to my Chairmanship of the Oil & Gas Committee as well as memberships on the Rules, Regulation Review, Transportation, Health, Education & Social Services, I'm pleased," said Representative Kohring. "That's because it places me in a position to have a major role in writing a significant portion of the state's overall budget."

Representative Kohring, who openly advocates for a more conservative, smaller, more efficient state government remains concerned that the state spends too much money. "Over seven billion dollars is spent on a state of just 700,000 people, by far the most, per capita, than any state in the U.S.," he said. He went on to say, "We can spend less and still fully fund the core essentials in government if we prioritize programs and streamline the bureaucracy."
