Sign the petition against the oil tax giveaway

Posted: March 29, 2012 - 11:03pm

Yesterday Gov. Sean Parnell said that we shouldn’t lower taxes without pledges of new investment. Great. However, as I understand it, “pledges” are not legally binding, and there is no time frame for new investment. A more disturbing quote comes from Senate Finance Committee Chair, Bert Stedman, regarding the progressivity clause in ACES. He is now agreeing that Alaska is taking too much when oil is high. It costs pretty much the same thing to get a barrel of oil to market if the price is $35/barrel as it does if the price is $125/barrel. The difference is greater profit for the oil companies and much higher costs for everyone else. Please consider signing my petition urging the Legislature to not give away money to the oil companies. Go to: http://signon.org/sign/dont-giveaway-alaskas-1 to read the petition and sign. Post on Facebook, email and call friends, anything you can do to help get the word.
