The Governor's transmittal letter dated January 17 follows: "Dear Speaker Edgmon: Under the authority of Article III, Section 18, of the Alaska Constitution, I am transmitting a bill relating to the State's operating budget for Fiscal Year (FY) 2021. The FY 2021 operating budget totals $4.397 billion Unrestricted General Funds (UGF), $894.4 million Designated General Funds (DGF), $707.6 million Other State Funds, and $2.866 billion Federal Funds. This budget makes strategic investments in public safety, honors statutory formula programs by fully funding K-12 education and a full statutory distribution of the Permanent Fund Dividend, while reducing total agency operation spending. My administration continues to seek budget reductions while providing better delivery of services to Alaskans by focusing on state agency operating efficiencies and modernization. The FY 2021 budget preserves State services at approximately the same level as the current fiscal year (FY 2020). My administration looks forward to working with the Legislature on the timely passage and implementation of the FY 2021 budget. Sincerely, /s/ Michael J. Dunleavy Governor"
