No one in any other state gets a cut from their states natural resources. There was a time when NY had control of its own port until other states got jealous of how rich it was making the state . [/quote] I agree, it's not fair! ALL states should share profits from their natural resources with the citizens. [/quote] Hugo Chavez has been demonized for doing this very thing. Why do we believe the lies that a corporation can strip all our natural resources and we don't get a thing for it and think thats acceptable? [/quote]
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Most Alaska residents will soon be getting a check for $1,174 simply because they live there.
Each person's share of the state's vast oil wealth was announced with much fanfare in Anchorage Tuesday, with Gov. Sean Parnell ripping open a gold-colored envelope to reveal the number. This day is so widely anticipated in Alaska that the announcement of the Permanent Fund Dividend amount was carried live on television statewide, and dozens tuned in to watch a live webcast by the governor's office.
