JUNEAU — A draft version of the bill aimed at advancing a major liquefied natural gas project in Alaska would raise the gas tax rate over what Gov. Sean Parnell proposed and change the role of the Alaska Gasline Development Corp., or AGDC.
A copy of the draft was provided at the Senate Finance Committee meeting Monday morning. Details were not discussed in committee, and the draft was not adopted. Committee co-chair Pete Kelly, R-Fairbanks, said he hoped to have a committee version adopted Tuesday or Wednesday.
