House Democratic Leader Responds to Governor Pulling the Plug on His Oil Tax Giveaway
JUNEAU – Tonight, House Democratic Leader Beth Kerttula released the following statement in response to Governor Parnell’s announcement that he is withdrawing his oil tax legislation.
“This is a good day for Alaska. I'm glad the governor just pulled the plug on his bad bill. The writing was on the wall when the governor introduced a bill that was nearly identical to his last giveaway. The facts have never supported giving away more of Alaska’s share, especially for nothing in return. I'm very proud of the House Democrats, and everyone else who worked against his oil tax giveaway.”
