    Alaska Oil Production Turns Upward

    Although there has been little celebration in the mainstream media, Alaska’s oil production outlook has quietly taken an upward turn for the first time in over 13 years.  As improbable as this might seem in today’s low oil price environment, production is expected to climb by approximately 10,000 barrels per day (bpd) in the current fiscal year (FY2016), according to the Alaska Department of Revenue’s Spring 2015 Forecast, and another 16,000 bpd in FY2017. Full Story

This reckless spending pattern is setting up Alaskan families for an economic bust. Full Story   Alaska’s unfortunate position as the highest cost state in the U.S. for workers compensation costs results in a heavy cost burden for our small and medium sized businesses.  The main reason is very high medical fees for even routine procedures, sometimes  as much as 95% higher than those allowed by nearby Washington State.  Full Story
