This give background for why the governor wants to use the PFD for the budget. This was the article that got me started on this subject I was looking for a subject to do my paper on and thought of this. So I guess you could say this was the source that started it all. I used this as a starting point to the paper and a way to think of questions that effect both sidesHerz, N. (2015, September 21) Are the days of big Alaska PFDs numbered? Anchorage Dispatch News. Retrieved from http://www.adn.com/article/20150921/are-days-big-alaska-pfds-numbered.This is an article talking about the longevity of the PFD and the size of the account from which the money comes from. I will be using because it has direct quotes from governor walker and it is from a journalism source which means it’s a credible source. The article talks about the plan that the governor would like to implement. I will want to use this source due to the fact that it’s from a local newspaper which makes it a creditable source with good quotes and background on the subject. This was one of the first times the governor was quoted about his new PFD plan.
