Palm Card - 4" x 9" .

In this year's race for Governor, sorne candidates and  special interest groups are spreading a lot of
misinformation about Alaska's fiscal situation. Let's straighten out a few of those myths.

PFD Myth: Money that the Governor and Legislature did not pay out in dividends was used to pay for government.
FACT: Every penny from the reduced dividend remains in the Permanent Fund Earnings Account, earning high interest rates and available for future dividend distributions.

Budget Myth: Alaska now has the highest budget in state history.
FACT: When Governor Walker first ran for office, the state was projecting a $1.6 billion deficit - then oil prices plummeted and the deficit he inherited when elected was $3.7 billion on a $6.1 billion budget. The Governor reduced the budget by $1.4 billion. This year's budget is $4.7 billion; the lowest level of state spending in over 10 years. At the current oil price ($74/bbl), the budget will balance.

Tax Credit Myth: Tax credits were paid off this year with money from the PFD reduction.
Al! of the money that was not paid out in the dividend stayed in the Permanent Fund to protect and grow the fund so that dividends could continue to be paid into perpetuity. None of the PFD reduction was used when Alaska paid off the exploration tax credits owed to small oil and gas companies.

Dividend Reduction Myth: Only the Governor thought the PFD restructure was necessary to preserve the stability of the fund.
FACT: The legislature, not the Governor, has set the PFD amount for the past two years. 36 legislators recognized the dividend needed to be set at a sustainable amount and voted for legislation that protects the Permanent Fund.1he legislature stood with the Governor to enact a structured draw from the Permanent Fund Earnings to pay out dividends and fund a portian of the cost of government services.

lndependent. Alaskan.

Permanent Fund Dividend

Why were the dividends reduced by the legislature and the Governor?

We all love fishing. Countless Alaskans rely on the fish we catch as food to get through the winter and
fish are vital to our economy. But we also accept that there must be limits, based on the number of fish returning each year. If we catch too many in one year, we'd risk running out of fish in future years. That is called managing the fish for a sustained yield.

This is how the Governor sees the debate over the Permanent Fund dividend amount. We love the dividends and we rely on them, but we need to make sure our grandchildren and their grandchildren
will also receive dividends. Like the fish, if we pay out a dividend above an amount the Permanent Fund can sustain long-term, we risk the possibility of not being abl􀀐 to pay out future dividends.

This year we'll receive a $1,600 dividend - that's higher than the historical average and won't risk future dividends!

Alaskans love fish, but we accept limits on fishing to preserve our resources for future generations.
The Permanent Fund Protection Act did the same thing: protecting both the fund and the dividend program.
