"An Act making appropriations for construction of an integrated science complex at the University of Alaska in Anchorage, for replacement of the virology laboratory in Fairbanks, for expansion of the Anchorage Museum of History and Art, for the major maintenance grant fund, and for other capital projects related to education; and providing for an effective date. "


"This legislation represents a real commitment from all Alaskans to maintain and build classrooms, science labs and learning opportunities for current and future students."
- Sen. Ben Stevens

 

Senate Bill 155 seeks to move Alaska forward into the next decade by investing in Alaska’s education infrastructure.

Senate Bill 155 transfers $344,488,471 from the earnings of the Permanent Fund to the major maintenance grant fund and construction of education facilities across Alaska. $219,988,471 is allocated to k-12 maintenance and new construction. $124,500,000 is allocated to institutions of higher learning and projects that benefit the education of all Alaskans.

According to projections provided by the Legislative Finance Division, the transfers made in SB 155 would have less than 1% effect on Permanent Fund Dividends over a fifteen-year period.

It is my position that this investment from the earnings of the Permanent Fund for Alaska's education infrastructure needs is both appropriate and necessary in order to provide Alaskans adequate and safe facilities to learn and grow intellectually.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

Senator Ben Stevens
