Alaska lawmakers on Sunday gave final approval to a bill backed by top North Slope producers Conoco (COP), BP and Exxon (XOM) to slash state oil production taxes, doing away with a methodology that increases tax rates as oil prices rise. Supporters say the cut will set the stage for future growth as Alaska tries to reverse declining oil output; critics say it will severely damage the state's finances.

    Alaska can possibly move forward economically now that Sarah Palin is gone from the State house.

     

    Demagogues..."what are they good for, absolutely nothing".

     

    Oil and gas are Alaskan lifeblood economically. And, did I fail to mention...how 'bout an economic policy that dares to put America First and nudge us closer to lack of dependence on overseas crude.

    Sarah Palin = Alaska Crude

     

    Maybe we can ship Alaska Crude overseas to help even our our balance of trade?
