Wow! The politics is so obvious with the Permanent Fund dividend process in Juneau that it makes a person sick. Everyone wants to say “We tried to get you the max amount, but the other guys wouldn’t let us!”
You could tell from the start of the session where this was going to end up. We pay them good money to keep this state on track and spending the majority of the session pretending that making this decision was the most important one is a complete waste of time and money.
We can fix this problem, but it takes everyone to get there.
