Rep. Grenn’s November 9th Newsletter: Criminal Justice Reform and AK LNG Update

Protecting Alaskans and keeping our communities safe is perhaps the primary obligation of our government. The past few months, I've spent an enormous amount of time learning about the different facets of crime, and how it affects our state, meeting with everyone from prosecutors, law enforcement, business owners, and victims of crimes. I was pleased to be in Juneau the last two weeks fighting for legislation that can be part of the solution to help stop the recent uptick in criminal activity.

NEWS: Compromise Achieved to Reform Alaska’s Unsustainable Oil Tax Credit System

Juneau – Tonight, the Alaska Legislature passed a compromise version of legislation to reform Alaska’s system of subsidizing the oil industry on the North Slope with tax credits. House Bill 111 ends Alaska’s unique cash for tax credits system and strengthens the four percent minimum tax to ensure Alaska receives some production tax revenue in times of low oil prices. Tonight’s compromise was brokered by House Resources Committee Co-chair Representative Geran Tarr (D-Anchorage), who served as the Chair of the HB 111 Conference Committee.
