TransCanada lobbies in Washington

Posted: Sunday, March 16, 2008

ANCHORAGE - Canadian company TransCanada is doing some lobbying in Washington, D.C.

The energy company seeks a state natural gas pipeline license, and is lobbying for the federal government to cover the cost of the project should it fail to get enough customers.

TransCanada's executives and Tom Roberts, the company's lobbyist, in recent weeks visited several members of Congress. They handed out a four-page briefing paper outlining their proposal.

The briefing paper said the federal government would keep paying fees until TransCanada could recruit customers.

TransCanada is the sole contender under official consideration by the Palin administration to build a natural gas pipeline.
