Back home, Palin outlines concerns over stimulus package

Back home, Palin outlines concerns over stimulus package

Sunday, February 1, 2009
ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Gov, Sarah Palin is back in Alaska after spending a few days in Washington, D.C.
Palin says she was monitoring the Mount Redoubt situation and had a travel plan in the event of an eruption: Fly to Seattle and finish the trip via automobile.

She returned home Sunday afternoon and said she used her time in Washington — including at Saturday night’s exclusive black tie Alfalfa Club dinner — to talk up the ways Alaska’s energy resources can help the nation and to make the case for federal assistance in doing that.

Palin says she’s dead set on proving Alaska can develop its resources responsibly and ethically.

On Monday Palin and state lawmakers will send a joint letter to Congress detailing their concerns about the economic stimulus package.

“We have to make sure that the nation’s deficit for this year and our long-term debt is not just growing to create more social programs, and to pay for some programs that states will inherit through a basically unfunded mandate,” Palin said.

She supports investment in infrastructure and wants to see Alaska get its share of those dollars, but wants a cautious eye out for proposed federal programs the state may have to fund on its own in the future.
