Rep. Tuck’s July 20th Newsletter: Agreement Reached to End Cash Subsidies to Oil Companies

This past weekend 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. After weeks of negotiating, the bill is estimated to save the state about $200 million per year over the next 10 years. With some limitations, companies can instead claim tax deductions after they start producing oil, which makes a lot more sense than handing money over with no way to tell if it is resulting in increased production.

In a major step forward, the Legislature has passed a compromise operating budget with a bipartisan vote of 31 to 8 in the Alaska House. This budget is not ideal, but it is necessary to prevent a government shutdown on July 1 which would have brought a halt to Alaskans’ ability to provide for their families at the most crucial time of year for many economic activities.
