Alaska CHARR

Members of Alaska CHARR, the state alcohol trade association, listen as Democratic governor candidate Les Gara speaks during a forum on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2022, at Louie's Douglas Inn in Juneau, Alaska. 

Speaking at a gubernatorial candidate forum Wednesday in Juneau, independent governor candidate Bill Walker and Democratic governor candidate Les Gara each said they would not raise alcohol taxes if elected.

Walker proposed doubling the state’s alcohol taxes during his first term in office, part of a broader plan to reduce a deficit caused by falling oil prices.
