Commission to hear Mallott travel issue

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A draft advisory opinion says Democratic gubernatorial candidate Byron Mallott (muh-LOT) cannot accept use of a volunteer's personal plane without paying a commercially reasonable rate.

Mallott's campaign asked the Alaska Public Offices Commission whether an individual who is a private pilot and owns a plane can volunteer his time and airplane to the campaign.

In a draft opinion, the commission's campaign disclosure coordinator says the pilot can volunteer all the time he wants. But he cannot exceed the $500 annual individual contribution limit, which includes the non-monetary value of air travel time.

The draft says regulations call for travel-related non-monetary contributions to be valued at a commercially reasonable rate.

The draft is subject to approval of the commission, which is scheduled to consider the matter next week.
