ANCHORAGE, AK – A new report commissioned by Rasmuson Foundation as part of its Plan4Alaska campaign finds that while strategies currently proposed to close Alaska’s $4 billion budget gap would significantly improve the state’s fiscal standing, a diversified revenue strategy is needed this year to close the gap and equitably distribute financial impact.
When my father, Elmer Rasmuson, ran the National Bank of Alaska, he strongly believed that communities that invested in themselves were healthy communities. Communities and businesses that showed willingness to put their own skin in the game — through public bonding or simply their own cash — were partners the bank had the confidence to invest in.

By now, nearly everyone is concerned about the state’s budget deficit. Research by Rasmuson Foundation shows that most Alaskans support some level of budget cuts to make state government more sustainable, but where?
When asked, 41 percent of Alaskans say they don’t know where to cut.
