Oil-tax opponents vow to monitor industry promises

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Early results indicate Alaska's new petroleum-tax system will be spared an early death by referendum. If the vote holds up, opponents vowed Wednesday to track promises its supporters made and pounce if they prove to be false. Ballot Measure No. 1 proposed a repeal of Gov. Sean Parnell's "More Alaska Production Act," approved last year as Senate Bill 21 and in effect since Jan. 1. As of Wednesday, the repeal was failing by almost 6,800 votes out of 153,164 cast but too close to call.
