Does Senate President Kevin Meyer really want to right-size state government or super-downsize it? That’s a matter of opinion, and as he wrote last week, everyone will have their own. So the question is which ones will influence the Senate majority?
Meyer’s defines the process of right-sizing as finding “the least amount of government Alaskans are willing to live with and the most government Alaskans are willing to pay for.” That might be an easy task if we were a state as small as Rhode Island or as geographically uniform as Kansas. But we’re not.
