Bill Walker: Increase certain business licensing fees to raise money

The fisheries, mining license and cruise ship head tax measures ensure that all sectors of our economy contribute to the solution. The fisheries bill proposes an increase of 1 percent to various fisheries levies. The mining license tax proposes an increase of 2 percent. The first $100,000 of a company's income is exempt from the increase. The cruise ship head tax legislation eliminates an existing port fees credit deduction.

Joe Miller: Multinational corporations exert power over party duopoly

Q: In the struggle over the future of the Republican party, what are the centers of power now?

A: The nation to a certain degree faces a duopoly where both parties are effectively doing the same thing, and that's growing the expanse of power in Washington, D.C. There's an enormous degree of power that's exerted against both parties by multinational corporations. You see that with the [Trans-Pacific Partnership]. You see that with respect to crony regulations and statutes that are embedded in the laws at the behest of lobbyists. You see that even down to the impact that we're seeing today economically in the country, with middle class having immediate net worth that is lowest in decades. The people aren't being properly represented.

Sarah Palin: Governor must act as effective CEO on behalf of Alaskans

PHILOSOPHY IN GOVERNING: I look forward to building a team that will put Alaskans first! I believe in fairness and inclusion and will call on the public to work together for Alaska’s common good. I refuse to use divisive tactics that polarize us for political gain.

As manager of our vast public resources, the Governor must act as an effective CEO on behalf of all Alaskans in negotiating the best deals for the state, and I am prepared to tackle that challenge.

Sarah Palin: Encourage small business growth by reducing business taxes

SMALL BUSINESS: Alaska’s small business owners are the backbone of our regional economies. Small Alaskan-owned businesses should have just as much say in state policy as the big companies do. Our precious businesses are major employers of Alaskans and keep Alaska’s money circulating through our economy. As Mayor and CEO of the booming city of Wasilla, my team invited investment and encouraged business growth by eliminating small business inventory taxes, eliminated personal property taxes, reduced real property tax mill levies every year I was in office, reduced fees, and built the infrastructure our businesses needed to grow and prosper.
