Legislature approves advancing gas line project

JUNEAU - The Alaska Legislature has passed a bill setting the state's participation in a major liquefied natural gas project. The House voted 36-4 on the measure Sunday. The Senate later voted 16-4 to agree to the House changes. SB138, from Gov. Sean Parnell, would set state participation at about 25 percent in a project also being pursued TransCanada, the Alaska Gasline Development Corp., and the North Slope's major players. It would allow the project to move to a stage of preliminary engineering and design and cost refinement.
