Thanks to Egan, Kerttula

Thanks very much to Senator Dennis Egan and Representative Beth Kerttula for the work they have done looking out for the interests of Alaskans regarding the governor’s proposals for changing the oil tax structure. Represenative Cathy Munoz voted for the governor’s proposed reduction in oil taxes in the last legislative session. I hope that she does not vote for another reduction in oil taxes unless oil companies are requried to make guarantees about investment in Alaska in return for tax breaks.
