Gov. Bill Walker is proposing an array of measures to deal with the state budget gap caused by the decline in oil revenue.
The measures include spending cuts, a "modest income tax," increased motor fuel and alcohol and tobacco taxes, and more.
The governor also is looking to the oil, fisheries, mining and tourism industries to "contribute to the solution."
In fisheries, Walker has offered legislation to increase tax rates on seafood processors.
According to this fiscal note, the Department of Revenue estimates the higher fish taxes would raise an extra $18.3 million in fiscal year 2017.
