“Follow the money, connect the dots” and “they who have the gold, rule”.
Those two “rules” have been around for thousands of years. They also apply to SB 21 (not the pseudonym “More Alaska Production Act”).
SB 21 gives the oil industry money the public was already entitled to by law. If you lent someone $1 billion per year, at an 8 percent long-term rate of return, any business should get back $5.9 billion in 5 years? But we don’t?
