Northrim Bank Lecture Series presents Cliff Groh
Thursday Feb 16 at the Glenn Massay Theater
Reception: 6:00pm and Lecture: 7:00pm
Cliff Groh is a lifelong Alaskan who has been a lawyer for more than 20 years and is now a writer and attorney in Anchorage. Groh served as the Special Assistant to the Commissioner of Revenue from 1987 through 1990. In that capacity, he served essentially as the State of Alaska’s tax lobbyist in the successful effort in 1989 to revise the state’s oil taxes in a way that increased revenues from the giant Prudhoe Bay and Kuparuk fields.
The legislation, adopted in 1989 to revise the Economic Limit Factor (ELF), created a regime for oil taxes that lasted until the Alaska Legislature adopted the Petroleum Profits Tax in 2006. Groh was also the principal legislative staff member working on Permanent Fund Dividend legislation in 1982. That legislation adopted in 1982 produced the per capita Permanent Fund Dividend Alaska has today.
Groh co-authored three chapters for Alaska’s Permanent Fund Dividend: Examining its Suitability as a Model and authored a chapter for Exporting the Alaska Model: Adapting the Permanent Fund Dividend for Reform around the World. Both books were published in 2012 by Palgrave Macmillan.
