Rep. Kawasaki’s July 18th Newsletter: Oil Taxes, Capital Budget and Great Fairbanks Events

Late last Saturday night, the House and Senate formed a compromise on HB 111 to eliminate cash credits to oil companies. The House passed the bill by a vote of 33-6 and Senate passed it 18-0.

With some limitations, companies can instead claim tax deductions when they start producing oil.
