Alaska needs energy policy
The importance of energy to the economy of Alaska and the lifestyles of its residents is much greater than in most states. This is largely because of the energy reserves, developed and undeveloped, that we have, the associated employment of many Alaskans that is provided by the energy industry, the importance of revenues from energy production to operation of the state as well as local governments, and the need and difficulty of providing energy at a reasonable cost to urban and rural communities.

The same could be said for any coup - when people like Simpson think they can judge better than the populace what's best for the country.
