Current fiscal policies limit choices on oil taxes

As I drive along the spur, north of Kenai, I see more signage going up stating "Vote No on 1." It seems small and medium size businesses understand who runs this State, Big Oil. Certainly our politicians understand. If the mega-oil companies do not get what they want they will pack their bags and leave. Many individuals believe these behemoths would never abandon Alaska. However, Corporations have only one fiduciary responsibility. It's all about making more money. And so they do. Rules and regulations ignored. Pay the fines as long as the profits continue. Just ask the big banks.
