Alaska’s revenue commissioner Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s administration intends to present lawmakers with a few revenue options during the second special session later this summer.
On Tuesday, State Revenue Commissioner Lucinda Mahoney told the House Finance Committee that among the options would be the governor’s proposal to expand gambling in the state. She stated that the administration is looking for a more detailed analysis of how much money would be raised.
“What is more important about that initiative is the economic impact that industry has on our economy,” she says. As well as the potential for economic diversification.”
