JUNEAU - Supporters of changes to Alaska's oil production tax structure have called for a meeting to discuss how best to advance the debate after another legislative defeat. Marc Langland and Jim Jansen, co-chairs of the Make Alaska Competitive Coalition, in an email Tuesday said they are not giving up on pressing for what they call meaningful tax reform, saying the state's economic future is at stake. The state relies heavily on oil production revenues to run. Recent high oil prices have helped to mask the impact of steady production declines.
JUNEAU (AP) -- Backers of a proposed ballot measure to move the Legislature to the Matanuska-Susitna Borough can start gathering signatures. Lt. Gov. Fran Ulmer has approved the initiative application.
