I believe in the historic and statutory payment of the PFD. The people of Alaska own the oil under our state and we currently give 85% of the royalties, gleaned from that oil, to the government for operating our state. I believe that ALL Alaskans deserve an equal share of our royalties. Currently the legislative attempt to steal the PFD is essentially a redistribution of wealth which takes part of ALL Alaskan’s Dividend and gives it to just a few Alaskan through special programs. I firmly believe that any change to the historic and statutory PFD formula should undergo a vote of the people of Alaska. It belongs to us – we should vote on it.
