State of Alaska secondary Archives: on Budget & Economy


Tony Knowles: Consolidate funding now distributed to Alaska’s 230 tribes

Murkowski said it was her idea to set up a rural congressional office in Bethel and that she made sure Alaska Natives participated in her summer internship program. Knowles pointed to his record, saying he set up a Native internship program in Anchorage when he was mayor. Both said they were against “regionalization” of federal funding. They were referring to the idea of consolidating funding now distributed to Alaska’s 230 or so federally recognized tribes and disbursing it through regional channels.
