Division of Elections certifies SB 21 petition

Issue will be on 2014 primary ballot

Posted: September 5, 2013 - 2:31pm

Alaskans will get to vote next year on whether to repeal Senate Bill 21.

The Division of Elections certified a petition to put SB 21 on the 2014 primary ballot Thursday. Of the 52,649 signatures gathered, 45,667 were qualified.

SB 21 — which passed the House and Senate during the last session — would give tax breaks to oil and gas producers.

State statute gives opponents 30 days from the date of certification to challenge the petition in Superior Court.
