JUNEAU — It's unlikely the Senate's oil tax bill will get enough support from within the majority caucus to move forward, a co-chair of the Senate Finance Committee said Friday.
Sen. Bert Stedman said it's in the state's best interest to fix problems in the current tax structure sooner rather than later. But at this point, he said, it looks like it may be later.
A lot can change — and fast — in the Legislature's typically chaotic last days, however. When it comes to the oil tax issue, Stedman said, "We're still working on it."
