Alaska natural gas pipeline battles may resume
03.16.2009 – The Juneau Empire reports that legislative opponents of Gov. Sarah
Palin's natural gas pipeline plan are asking the Legislature to reconsider the
endorsement it gave Trans-Canada Corp.'s plan just months ago.
"All Alaskans want a gas pipeline. But we need to temper that with the reality of the
U.S. and world markets today," said Rep. Craig Johnson, R-Anchorage, co-chair of
the House Resources Committee.
Johnson and Rep. Jay Ramras, R-Fairbanks, have introduced House Concurrent
Resolution 12, a measure calling on the Palin administration to "review and re-
evaluate" the license the state issued to TransCanada last year after spending 60
days in special session reviewing its application.
The "license" gives TransCanada exclusive access to $500 million in state money to
help develop a pipeline, but also commits the Calgary, Alberta-based company to
develop and finance a pipeline in ways that are good for Alaska.
