20. You guys are so wrong it is not funny
The oil drilling in Alaska was happening on STATE lands. As residents of the state, we own the land. In the boom days, there was more revenue than the state could spend (if you could imagine that) Gov. Hammond decided that since the state lands belonged to the residents of the state, some benefit should come to the residents. They took the extra money and invested it, and paid the dividends to the residents...hence the Permanent Fund. Current oil revenue does not mean diddly to the permanent fund, it is the STOCK MARKET that matters. Over sixty billion dollars are invested on behalf of the residents of Alaska.
