Alaska Oil Policy| Testifying Monday before House and Senate Resources

I have been  invited to testify Monday before the Senate and House Resources Committees on the Governor's proposed oil tax bill (SB 21/HB 72).  My testimony will evaluate the proposed bill using the five criteria I outlined and explained on these pages late last year.  "Five things to look for in oil tax reform ..." (Nov. 23, 2012).  As the readers of these pages will anticipate, I have some thoughts on the extent to which the bill meets the criteria.

Both hearings will be available on the web at at the appointed time.  The House Resources Committee hearing is gaveled in at 1:00 pm Alaska; Senate Resources meets at 3:30 pm.  The presentations used during each hearing will be available at the appointed time at the websites for the hearings.

We'll see how this goes.
