Since the passage of Alaska's oil tax
reform legislation, the potential impact of SB21 and the effort to repeal the
legislation through Ballot Measure 1 has been a reoccurring topic of discussion
during our Energy Action Coalition meetings. Some of our members have
expressed an interest in Commonwealth North hosting a moderated discussion to
hear informed arguments from Alaskans on both sides of the debate.
In an effort promote informed discussion
of this vital public policy issue, on Friday,
August 8th, from noon - 1:30pm at the Petroleum Club of Anchorage, Commonwealth
North will host a moderated panel discussion on ballot measure 1. We will have one Alaska legislator and
one non-legislator representing each side.
To date, we have confirmed Senator Hollis French and former
Anchorage borough mayor and deputy commissioner of the Alaska Department of
Natural Resources, Jack Roderick, to
represent the "vote yes on proposition one" side. Representing the "vote no on proposition
one" side will be Senator Cathy
Giessel and an Alaskan business leader (to be announced shortly). Senator Giessel
is the chair of the Senate Natural Resources Committee. Senator French is a member of the Senate
Natural Resources Committee. The
discussion will focus on questions submitted by the audience.
We are accepting sponsors for this event. If you are interested in becoming an event
